Simple Dot seems like it has a nice idea, with you drawing lines to get balls from one end of a level to another. A simple idea but it looks like it does get quite complicated later on.

From what the developer has described, you will have up to five lines to draw on each level and the balls react differently to each of them. There's over 60 levels of this, various ways to solve each level and you can hide the ranking system if you just want a more casual experience.

Honestly, I love puzzlers like this. Simple ideas that let you give your brain a bit of a workout, while not being overly taxing so still good after a long day.

You can check it out and wishlist it on Steam. It's releasing on May 17th with Linux support.

This looks lovely, particularly since I can hide the ranking system. Reminds me, weirdly, of N+, but it's a puzzler. I suppose the price will be crucial. Not sure exactly what price point would put me off buying such a simple looking game... I paid £5 for TIS-100 without batting an eyelid though. Maybe a bit more, around the Bridge Constructor Portal £7.50 mark?

Anyway, wishlisted. It's only 3 weeks away.

Reminds me of a mix between The Incredible Machine and Lemmings (which I've never actually owned, just played on someone else's computer long ago). And it comes out on my birthday? Eh, I'll wishlist and see how much it is when it comes out.

This looks good wish-listed for future reference for when it inevitably gets buried before I have money to get it. Plus hey I think given what it was tested on I think this is a game nearly every one with a PC of some form should be able to run which is nice to see every once in a while.

Not to be totally off topic but I'm so glad we got a native port of N++ I felt a little guilty knowing I caved before it released considering I tend to keep a No Tux No Buck policy most the time but it was well worth the price of admission.
