Quite Beautiful

Played it right now. My first impression is, that It is really beautifully made.

The whole thing has kind of a special aura to it. You mainly interact with the world, doing point an click puzzles, but what it lacks in action it makes up in atmosphere. it's quite charming and relaxing.

I'll definitely keep playing later today.

Thanks for the feedback so far

I'm the minigame/puzzle designer of the game, as well as doing some other tasks (like the translations). It was a long journey, and we're all glad and relieved we could finally release the game (in a state we're all happy with!).

The link to our trailer is quite well-hidden and not properly linked in the main posting, so I thought I'd post it here again for convenience:



Again, thanks for the feedback so far! We're eager to hear what you think about our game!

Hello Connector

sorry for the late Reply. We're currently focusing our energy to push Elarooh in Switzerland. Today we got a review in a major swiss newspaper, so things are going well here. I hope the international press will follow soon.

Until then, enjoy the wise unicorn which will help you the one or other time in Elarooh

... There's a unicorn?!? SOLD.

That, plus seeing clearly proud-of-their-work devs on the forums, really was what made me click 'purchase'.

Feel free to add a bionic unicorn bits expansion pack.

Edit: just loaded it up to test it. The first thing I noticed was that orientation was locked, so that turning the iPad upside down didn't do the same to the game.

Any chance of changing that in a future update? If there's a design reason for a lock, maybe have a toggle in the options menu?

I'm in the middle of another adventure game, but I look forward to playing through your game next.
