Gorogoa (Video Game)




Gorogoa
 2017 | Buried Signal and Annapurna Interactive

“Gorogoa” immerses players in a multilayered world centered around four seemingly simple tiles that tell the tale of a boy’s quest while revealing messages about the connections between objects and spaces in life. Created by artist Jason Roberts and published by Annapurna Interactive, the game’s beautifully drawn scenes require engagement with both the minute details of the world and bigger picture mysteries that emerge, including the presence of a mythical monster. Innovative and inspiring an immediate sense of wonder, the story unfolds as the player figures out how to connect images to one another and move objects between layers. “Gorogoa” is the digital manifestation of an artistic pop-up book merged with the excitement of an escape room, all packaged into a seamless user experience.
