Gorogoa delivers everything I want in a video game. Released this week on Windows, iOS, and Switch, it is an uncompromising, serious puzzle-adventure game; an experience that uses simple mechanics and a strong art style to dig into a melancholy narrative about war, decay, and collapse. It’s a gestural game that suggests more than it explains and can leave a player feeling empty and confused. It stands apart from other art games, and is all the better for it.
