Absolutely fantastic puzzle game. Certainly worth the cost, even though it's not super long. Full of cool ideas, relaxing, just the right difficulty to never get to the boring side of frustration, but enough that you feel you've learned something each time you make a new snowman. In the end part of the game after all the main rooms, there is a big change of perspective that requires you to resolve all the rooms with different goals, making you understand it all 100%.

It's mostly a great game. But the way things are (or aren't) communicated to the player is in my opinion not clever but a mistake. There are for instance the butterflies - the meaning of which I had to look up. Or the dream sequences - which I again had to look up. Also, the endgame reminds me of the one in "The Witness" in that unlike the initial part of the game, it's not primarily challenging but just incredibly cumbersome and time consuming.

It's cute and the puzzles are pretty zen. Happy to see some free form solution optimization. Felt a little light... Not much variation on the theme, and was able to wrap everything up the day after i got it. Also, stability could use some work... Lots of crashes.
