Windowsill is a new game by Patrick Smith (Vectorpark.com). An adventure type puzzle, it is your task to go level to level solving somewhat logical puzzles. The word is populated by objects and beings but it is the square that fits right above the door on your right is the object you are after. This may be given to you by the bird or it could be the part of letter “i”. None of this might make sense but you really need to play the game to find out what is all about. I have managed to pass first 3 levels pretty easy, but I am not sure If I can make logic from level 4. Greeted by weird but wonderful five objects on plant stems, each with individual properties, I am trying to make sense of it all. Definitely not a game for the impatient and unfortunately I may be one of those but I will try to keep going as much as I can. Windowsill is nevertheless a wonderfully drawn and animated game. From the weird characters to the little steam engine that is ‘you’, everything in the game looks great.
With point-and-click (and drag and tug and spin) you will explore the wonderful world of Windowsill. Unlike Patrick’s previous game “Feed the Head“, Windosill is a download, and it costs 3 dollars to play the full game. The first half is free and a much worthy download. If you like the first half, then the $3 shouldn’t be hard to shell out for the second.
if you would like to see how some of the ideas for the game developed, have a look at Partick’s Drawing Blog.
I should also mention that there is a full SPOILER movie on youtube, not attached here but it would be a real shame to watch. It’s a quick run through all the levels in the game, making the whole part of enjoying the game a history. Don’t go there!
