This would be a lot easier if the puzzles were cleaner and there was some feedback along the way.

For example there are a couple of puzzle where you have to fit different pieces together, but it's not obvious if they're in the right spot because they don't snap into place when they're correct. It's a lot of trial and error and it's a little hard to even know if you're on the right track.

Also, some puzzles have multiple solutions where different parts are used and other parts aren't, but it's not always clear what you're supposed to ignore or what bits are important.

I love the aesthetic but the actual game play needs some refinement.

I was expecting the game to restart at the very end.
All puzzles are self contained.
Watch the tree to see how many codes to enter.
I agree that "snap in place" would make it easy.

Refreshingly original. Might need some refinement, or it might just be that we all play too many games that too much alike.

I was rather proud of myself for getting as far as I have...but I see others have gotten further. It helps that the parts you are "done" with are no longer clickable. But I can't figure out what I'm missing on the "four leaves" puzzle. I got 2 codes....but I obviously require a 3rd, or even 4th. I've reached the point of frustration, I'm afraid....

It was very unique, but I had to use a few hints because some of the solutions to the puzzles were not clear to me at all. I liked how you can't click puzzles that are solved, though. The puzzles that I did manage to figure out on my own were very unique and enjoyable.

Hint for the third four leaves puzzle: Try putting them next to each other in a way that there are no half-holes.

Thanks Anonymous @22:50. I had tried that a dozen times, but was mis-reading the letters that gave me! (They were rather cryptic). But, I'm out. Was an interesting brain teaser, even if it was somewhat trial and error based.

I rarely pay in advance for games that have the "pay what you want to" option. But for a good one I end up liking, I go back and drop a couple of bucks into the developer's jar. This one qualified.

One of those great games with seemingly unfathomable puzzles until you have a eureka moment. so cleverly done. this game is not an exercise in precision, it is an exercise in art. beautiful.

I made it. some puzzles were tricky. I thought about letters instead of numbers.... :)

Agree with @ Psilent Ppea; From a start of being frustrated and not understanding, to getting one or 2 puzzles, to finally getting through them all was actually quite pleasing. The lack of a snap seemed annoying to start with, but would have made it too easy.

I cannot find one of the puzzles.
I have the hand, dice, stick animals, rose and paper, glasses, stick tree, 4 leaves, and dot flowers. I know some are doubled and I have completed these as I can no longer click on them.
Any help to finding the missing puzzle?

I loved it!

floor?

Some of those were stretching logic and reasoning. But over all it was fun.

Meblin, did you do the one on the floor?
