One of the best puzzlers on the app store, and universal! The serene setting works beautifully.

I'd never heard of this game until it was announced as free yesterday - not sure how I missed it as it is absolutely fantastic. Love the gameplay, atmosphere and music. But could I ask the developers - what do the years signify (1928-1946 I think it is). It feels like there's a story behind the game but it doesn't seem to be elaborated on - it just feels very enigmatic and mysterious. And each level being a view looking out of a window pane in a different year - and the raindrops falling down each pane. Gives the game a very sad and wistful feel which is quite unique. But what does it mean?

Forget the United Nations - the AppStore can bring us all together on a global scale, as we all, as day dawns in whatever country we live in, get to experience the wonder that is a new game on our iOS devices...

Hi Prhaber,

thanks for your kind words.

We did have an entire narrative worked out, and we in the process of having it finalised by a script-writer, but we decided that somehow the game worked better without having a heavy-handed story forced on the player.

We'll probably show it as some stage, just for fun, but I'd be interested to know what you and other players thought it might be about? You're right that the years all feature, as do all the components in the gameplay, as do many parts of the front end. In fact, the entire art style itself was intended to supplement the story, so it's ironic that we ended up ditching the script!

Tell you what - I'll offer up a couple of free Promo codes for Quell Reflect, to the person / people who guess the closest (told you I'm kind!). Submit your entries to this thread...

Well, I want you to tell me you think the backstory to Quell might have been about.

I think, it's a story for a whole year, each month has a little story and a different stage.
