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.
10 stars if I could....
This is the first time I sought to review and rate a game (the game did not prompt me to rate it). It is easily the most original and unique game I’ve ever played. And the most enjoyable.
The game introduces a boy in search of special objects which he needs to collect. The journey of how this boy completes his task, however, is one of a kind. The story unfolds across the game’s 4 panels, almost like comic book panels.
These panel images are to be explored, and the way one manipulates and explore these panels to aid in the boy’s search separate this game from any other.
Panels can be moved around, and sometimes be pulled apart to reveal layers and portals to other places. They can layer on top of one another to produce passageways or access points for the boy character to proceed to other panels. It can be disorienting at first getting the hang of the game’s design, but it is so so very worth it.
Some games can make you frustrated because of being stuck not being able to solve something. THIS game, amazingly, doesn’t evoke that. There are many tasty challenges, and the mind and intuition expand as you play more. The game invites this kind of playful participation and it pays off big time.
There is a storybook and a cinematic vibe to the art of the game. The music is wonderful and not intrusive. Truly worth the price and the accolades it is receiving.
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.
