Obelisk

Game Obelisk is a puzzle game that is built up from 9 chunks.

Chunks have bridges that drop down when they align with each other. Two lit chunks can be swapped with each other. Some of them are linked together with connectors and can be rotated from a distance. Some have walls that divide the chunk into two parts. Sometimes you're joined by a partner and you have to get through the level together.

Your objective is to get everyone to the shrine. Some levels have multiple solutions so how you get there is up to you!

I really enjoyed your puzzle game which had some kind of "Monument Valley" vibe for me, not just because of the minimalistic, but effective graphics, but also because of the game design itself. It was a delight to see how I could interact with my environment thanks to the 'gear towers'. That's why I had to write a praising article about your game as well as upload a gameplay video of it. Thank you for this great game! :)

Best wishes,
Sebastian
