Puzzle Retreat. Sudoku meets sokoban (from the makers of Train Conductor)



Hey there!

We've been working on this super minimal, really challenging puzzle game. It feels like playing a mix of the number solving in sudoku and the block pushing of sokoban! If you can imagine that? It's a totally new type of puzzle game.

You'll play for a bit, but get lost in the puzzles for hours. It's launching next Thursday (the 31st Jan) for $0.99








And a screenshot direct from the game


What do you think?

It is hard to form any strong opinions from the screen captures, but the concept sounds interesting and the pedigree of Train Conductor is promising. Hopefully the trailer will help sell the game.
