Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Shape of Things (2023) is a relaxing puzzle game where you manipulate objects to match up their disjointed pieces. It's played a bit like the Rubik's cube, only here it's not colours and sides you are matching up but elements of these different everyday things.

In a range of different homely settings, you solve puzzles in a few ways. You need to find the correct position for each piece by rotating, panning, or scaling until you find the shape of things. Then by completing these objects, you are rewarded with coins that earn you toys for your collection.

The result is a gentle brain game where there is no pressure and no timers. You can progress at your own pace and even adjust your cosy room mood through the weather or time of the day.
