You might get stuck the first time you play Gorogoa. But once the gears of your brain settle into the right configurations, you’ll see how smart this mix of art and perspective really is. Layers pile upon layers, doors transport you between realities, strange creatures and wild environments blend together into a fascinating interactive collage you’ll want to peel apart to discover what lies underneath.

Beautiful, spare, and just challenging enough.

Absolutely gorgeous puzzle game with a story told wordlessly through the subtle language of images. The puzzles are just challenging enough to make you pause and ponder a bit without experiencing too much frustration. I hit those lovely “Aha!” moments of discovery and delight so many times in this game that it was easily worth the price of admission. The sound design and music perfectly match the artwork and enhance a peaceful, gentle approach to solving the game’s mysteries. It is relatively short, but very enjoyable. I was able to complete it the first time in just a couple of hours. I actually appreciate its brevity as this is perfect for a short burst of intense concentration and immersion from which a person will emerge with feelings of accomplishment, relaxation, and mental stimulation. This is not a game that requires quick reflexes or adrenaline but rewards the patient and thoughtful player. This is a fantastic game for anyone who loves art, puzzles, and design.

Beautiful but Underwhelming

Gorogoa is fascinating in its visual appeal but lacks the complexity and depth of most other “puzzle” games such as The Room series. While Girogia deviates from the other conventional puzzle games in its artistry and mechanics, the price seemed far too high for the overall product. Gorgeous hand-drawn art aside, Gorogoa had a detached plot that did not leave the player with a sense of mystery but rather a sense of bored confusion. Lastly, the music did not enhance the game experience and acted as a repetitive filler giving a convoluted ambience to the convoluted premise. However, I am giving Goragoa four stars because the artwork and game mechanics are truly stunning. I look forward to playing similar games with high artistic value that incorporate a more engaging plot (i.e. The Room series). While I am glad I played Gorogoa, I would not have paid as much as I did for the very short completion time and loose premise the game offers. Overall, Gorogoa relies on stunning graphic art and novel game mechanics to present itself as an empty, overpriced, but beautifully crafted box.
