It’s nice to see how much care recent mobile games, like Monument Valley, Lara Croft GO, and Hitman GO before it, have put into building a distinct art style beyond the boring visual polish seen in the free-to-play market. A new game called Euclidean Lands seems to combine the best from the aforementioned titles: a bright and colorful world that’s part board game, part abstract, toy-like puzzler that spins and rotates like the Escher-esque worlds of Monument Valley.
We first got a look at Euclidean Lands last month, when it was only a nameless collection of lovely gifs. Now it has a trailer, showing off more of its puzzles, each like a miniature medieval Rubik’s Cube. Based on its YouTube description, Euclidean Lands is set across six planes (the different surfaces of a 3D cube, presumably) that can only be manipulated by a selected few.
Your character is one of the chosen ones, but it’s not that simple. Head over to the Twitter for Euclidean Lands and you’ll find a few new gifs pulled from the trailer with some accompanying explanations. In one, the creators show off how a boss fight set on a floating cube can get complicated when the boss has the power to rotate the cube’s sides, too.
