Do you like The Witness, Antichamber, or Fez?

Then maybe, Sensorium is for you! It's a very small puzzle game (between 5 and 7 hours I'd estimate) made essentially as a labor of love inspired by those games and others in the "puzzle island" genre. The premise is that you have one section for each of the five traditional senses.

The game's biggest strength in my opinion is that each of the sense sections lasts around exactly how long it should (and always culminates in a puzzle that feels like it tops off that section) Between all of the sections there are also some "logic gate" puzzles that interact with the five senses in different ways. Generally, it's a really nicely crafted little experience, with almost everything you come to expect from the genre including interesting secrets and easter eggs.

The game is an indie puzzle game made nearly entirely by one person, so it can be a bit rough around the edges at times, but that's part of the charm. It's closer on the spectrum to the Antichamber side than the Fez or Witness side (which were both very, very highly polished) The person who made it did it in his spare time and released it with little fanfare or marketing. I highly recommend you check it out. Especially right now, when it's just . I really think it deserves more eyes than it has had on it so this post is essentially me doing my part.

One last thing... have a notepad ready, or some easy digital method to very quickly take screenshots and notes. It's not necessary at all times, but it makes things WAY easier.

Minute of Islands is a hand-drawn (and very beautiful) puzzle platformer (mostly puzzle) where you explore some islands in a very strange world and try to solve some puzzles to save it.

I appreciate how much you contribute to this thread and have a feeling this was answered in an earlier post but do you try all of the games you post here or are these descriptions being curated/compiled from somewhere else? The main reason I ask is because this caught my eye but even the positive reviews I'm seeing are essentially saying the puzzles are less of a focus and imply this is more of a narrative walking sim style game than a full on puzzle game.
