Many puzzle games these days offer up engaging puzzles among some beautiful setpieces. Whether it be through the use of portals or the manipulation of light, each one brings something unique and interesting to the table. Few though, dare to mess with your brain and perception of the world around you. That’s where Manifold Garden comes into play, offering up some beautifully simplistic visuals and engaging puzzles. It’s been on other platforms and the Epic Games Store for some time, but today that changes. Manifold Garden is now available on Steam for $19.99. You can even get the game at a 20% discount during launch week, putting the game at $15.99. You can find the Steam launch trailer below.
Manifold Garden reimagines the very fabric of time and space, creating new physics and even stranger puzzles. This expansive world is your playground, leaving how you solve these puzzles up to you. Throughout your adventure, your warp this land to your will and explore infinite labyrinths in a land you’ll never want to leave. It’s a very unique puzzle game in that sense, one that’s hard to put into words. As fellow publication EDGE said, Manifold Garden is “A beautiful meditation on the human brain, nature, mathematics, time, space and creation.”.
This is an experience that puzzle fans don’t want to miss. It’s been nominated for Beazley Designs of the Year, and will even be showcased in the Design Museum starting tomorrow until March 28, 2021. For an indie puzzle game, that’s no small feat. If you enjoy the game’s soundtrack as well, you can pick that up in a bundle on Steam at a reduced price.
