Solo (2018) is a new very interesting introspective puzzle video game for PC. In Solo, the puzzles aren’t the only things that need answers. Indie developer Team Gotham presents players with an idyllic island filled not only with riddles but with peaceful activities that players can use to relax and think about deeper questions.
✔ Genre: Adventure

The contemplative puzzler comes out on April 26 for PC, and it will be available in English, Spanish, and simplified Chinese. Solo has a minimalist art style with bright colors and simple geometric shapes, and an array of gentle creatures are available to befriend on a cheerful island. When players aren’t solving puzzles, they can relax by playing a guitar, feeding animals, or taking pictures of their surroundings.
Solo seems quite different from both The Guest and The Red Strings Club, but it bears some similarities in its mechanics and interest in investigating deeper topics. Players will explore the island to discover the truth about it, and they’ll solve puzzles in the environment and meditate on love and relationships.
