Dev Talk / AMA:


Altered is a very polished and meditative block pushing game with an outstanding art style that was in development for 3 years. Similarly to the games it evokes (Witness first and foremost), it has an easy to learn mechanic and slowly, but gradually eases you into the increased complexity the puzzles present to you. The first half of the game can be challenging, but never feels impossible and I absolutely adore how they managed to keep most levels to a very easily digestible format so that you never feel overwhelmed or that there would be too many steps necessary that end up in tedious repetition. Its just a smart game that doesnt need to hide in front of any of the other genre greats.


The game contains 4 different movement/pushing mechanics, which means the game never lets a single idea drag on too long and by changing those mechanics up with their own distinct visual styles, it just becomes an almost meditative experience to figure out the solution to any given level. I actually find it super interesting (see Dev talk) that the game was initially meant to be much harsher with move amount restrictions, but they noticed that the "challenge" they were going for here was detracting from what the game does best: Offering a peaceful and challenging experience that you can delve into at your own pace.

Its lovely, challenging, has a great art style and really is just an all around pleasure to play as they managed to come up with some puzzle ideas that I haven't really seen done exactly like that in any other game so far. Good stuff, definitely deserves way more attention. 4,5/5
