Releasing sometime this Summer, Altered looks like a rather sweet take on the puzzle genre as you're a block that forms part of a puzzle.

The developer, Glitchheart, describes it as a "meditative" puzzle game that mixes difficult puzzles in with a "soothing atmosphere". The description made me chuckle a little, as you can make it seem as soothing as you want but if the puzzles really do get difficult you can't stop players getting frustrated. Still, solving puzzles doesn't need to make you sweat which is more the point here as it seems there's no set time limits and no dangers.

Being a part of the actual puzzle is interesting and at release it will have over 80 of them to complete. It mentions something about being "different player types" but doesn't really explain it. From the video, it seems different blocks might be able to manipulate the world differently. Quite keen to find out either way, so will keep an eye on the release and let you know when a date becomes available.

It will be released on both itch.io and Steam sometime this Summer.

I hope it doesn't constantly rotate around like that. I'd get dizzy!
