A delightful free game with 20 chapters to play. The story of a man meeting the love of his life done in a beautiful silhouette style reminiscent of Amphora.
A warning for those people who are not very dexterous. There are platform elements in this game, some requiring precision and others speed. Hence my lengthy time!!
Each chapter has a different environment and they are just gorgeous. Some are darker than others. There are 3 hearts to find in each chapter and they are very easy to find. Some are more difficult to get to than others.

What a beautiful game! The visuals and soundtrack is stunning (I need the soundtrack in my life haha!) each one completely fitting the mood of each level!
I suck at platformers so it took me a little longer then it would maybe take others, but it’s definitely worth a play!
The story really represents the ups and downs and the different emotions experienced through a relationship with someone, since the very first moment they met them.
Control:Override is a puzzle platformer with a unique and mind twisting mechanics that tests your understanding and imagination at each corner, even in its story.
As consumers, lets cut straight to the chase, do you get your money’s worth with the release price of 3 dollars?
Yes, and more - now to the review.
… Is where the game shines, it begins with single mechanics, then it hits the player with a combination of them where every level is memorable.

Good, unique little puzzle platformer. Controls were frustrating when I was trying to rush through things, but are manageable if you take your time. The rewind system works really well and lets you trial-and-error out solutions. Puzzles are a little on the easy side, but there are a few head-scratchers in there. Definitely worth a play-through!
What Lies in the Multiverse
What Lies in the Multiverse is a story-driven 2D adventure that one could call a dramatic comedy. Filled to the brim with hilarious, cartoonish hijinks, the narrative also presents the player with mature and deep themes like death, envy, and obsession.
Things inevitably go batshit crazy very fast in the Multiverse when you discover the ability to travel between parallel worlds. These worlds are alternate versions of each level and differ in aesthetic, theme, and physicality. Switching between them allows you to solve logical and spatial challenges and to progress the story.
Would you like to change the game world on the fly? Now you can! Can’t reach a ledge? Bam! Switch worlds mid-air. Afraid of sliding around in an icy environment? Alternate to another universe for firmer ground! Just be careful when messing with gravity…
Embark on a journey across a variety of gorgeous pixel-art worlds, each offering something unique. Explore temples, towns, harbors, the wilderness and more as you race to unlock the secrets of the Multiverse.
Colorful Cast of Characters
Meet a bunch of quirky but compelling characters such as Everett, your eventual genius companion. Picture a sarcastic, eccentric Albert Einstein. Then there’s EZ, a mysterious figure everyone fondly remembers but can’t describe. Or ZENITH, a group of enigmatic and shadowy figures always breathing down your neck.
A Deeper Story
While staying true to its light-hearted nature, the story’s poignancy builds as you progress. A rollercoaster of laughter, joy, and sorrow awaits.

The UI, level hub, and main menu art assets are absolutely gorgeous, and it seems like there’s a lot of content to play through. There are a ton of different characters in the dialogue sequences but I don’t think it gets to the point of being overwhelming. I also really enjoy certain aspects of the combat, like choosing between different kinds of weapons (including a catzooka??!), and the falling clothesline; I hope there’s more interactive environments like that. It’s so obvious that hours and hours of love went into the making of this game.
I love the art style of the menu and character portraits as well as the music, however the sprites for the fight section just don’t really match everything else. In fight segments, I found you can easily just push against enemies and swing your katana at them which prevents them from attacking back. The boss fights however gave a better fight.
Personally, I think it would work better with a non pixel-like look for the fight segments and change the fights to just boss fights, each with their own moveset as even on Hard, the regular enemies were no threat at all.
Embark on a clockwork puzzle-platforming adventure set in a mechanical ecosystem as Cognito, a curious creature whose duty to maintain the lifecycle of this captivating world leads him on a journey to heart of the machine in order to save it.
In this metallic jungle - where life is mechanical, rather than biological in nature - evolution has given rise to a beautifully orchestrated set of behaviours, which underpin the tactile clockwork puzzles and dynamic platforming of the game.

Puerto Viejo is a game set during the Spanish golden age in which you, playing as Miguel, are on a mission to find your father after he hasn’t returned from Sea. However, such a journey is expensive and you only have 2 days. It’s now based on you being able to find enough jobs and meet enough people in hopes to get the money in time. Completing such jobs requires the completion of various mini games: each game unique to its level. Some are harder, some are easier. Some will require you to do them over and over again until you succeed. I don’t want to spoil them, but I can tell you that they really train your timing and reflexes. Really gets you to concentrate on the game. A unique way of challenging the player, nothing I have ever seen before. This game blends both realism and non fiction too, in that it demonstrates the work of the Spanish golden age in its mini games. The Spanish golden age was a time period of flourishing art and literature. This is seen in levels such as helping your friend sing a poem while you are plucking the guitar. For the rest, I’ll let you explore and connect the levels to the games surrounding yourself. A fun and easy way to learn something new.
What a charming game! The game has gorgeous art and music which helps to whisk me away to a Ghibli-esque world. The minigames are varied with lots of new mechanics each being introduced. I look forward to what’s next from this studio.
