Not alot of info in that app description. What is it? Genre? Is about a room with a safe in it? A house with puzzles? Is it point and click etc etc...

I have yet to buy it (not at home) but this is togheter with Lunar my purchases for tonight (your review ruled out Lili for me).

I hope it has some cool story to uncover while playing...but it's surely charming.

It reminds me Myst.

This game is a true gem. It's like myst but with a box. Mind you it's not that complicated and there's no backtracking here but it can get tricky and the atmosphere/visuals are top notch. Man what a week for ios (and gaming) this turns out to be!

Is it like a box in a box thing? Or do you walk around to different rooms?

It's a box in a box thing but the box changes in between chapters. It's really cleverly built and there's some kind of storyline too you can turn around, pinch and double tap to zoom and interact.
