A relaxing arcade/logic game developed by an independent studio thatgamecompany. FlOw is somewhat similar in essence to the classic Snake game, popular on old mobile phones. The player’s task is to control a shapeshifting creature in such a way that it eats organisms smaller than itself, increasing its size in the process. The game doesn’t contain any plot, while the main incentive to continue playing is gradual access to new creatures with different abilities. Despite simple rules, the success in the game requires some thought. Some of the encountered enemies have weak points that can be accessed only using certain power-ups, such as temporary invincibility or speed boost. The game is complemented by relaxing music, as well as original visuals – individual organisms are similar to creatures only seen through a microscope.
The Witness (PS3)
A first-person adventure game with logic puzzles, developed by the creator of Braid – Jonathan Blow and his independent studio Number None. The game takes you to a large, mysterious island, whose all inhabitants vanished without a trace. Gameplay has you explore this vast world, solve logic puzzles, and search for clues that will help you solve the mysteries of this place. Game mechanics resemble the cult Myst series. As you play, you have to display remarkable patience, observance, and the ability to connect different pieces of the story. Many things here have secret meanings, and the key symbols, hints, and markings were cleverly hidden within the game’s environment. The Witness features simple, but charming, 3D graphics and supports the virtual reality headset Oculus Rift.
