Puzzle games are meant to challenge the brain and build up those problem-solving skills, but they can also serve as a relaxing way to take your mind off the stress of everyday life. Triversal, from Canadian independent developer Phantom Compass, is a perfect example of a game that nails both qualities, and it’s out today for Windows PC via Steam!
In Triversal, the goal is simple: place the glowing orb over the black hole by connecting it to stretchy tethers in just the right way. While this seems straightforward at first, the challenges become progressively more difficult as the levels become more complex and additional modifiers — like flexible tethers — are added to the mix. However, Triversal keeps things relaxing and groovy with a lush neon palette, warm and cozy sound effects, and a spaced-out, super-chill soundtrack.
Triversal recently won the Silver Award In PC Puzzle Games at the 2021 NYX Game Awards and it’s easy to see why. With multiple game modes, control options for every preference, and thousands of levels to conquer, Triversal is the perfect pick-up-and-play kind of game that can fit into any schedule. And for streamers looking to increase their audience engagement, the “Streamer Assist feature” encourages viewers to participate in the fun by offering tips and suggestions via a handy on-screen overlay! So whether alone in the living room, unwinding after a tough day at work, or online with an eager crowd, Triversal is a puzzle game that will keep you on your toes while providing a cozy and comfy way to sit back and enjoy the fun.
- A Gentle Workout: Like a mellow hike along a lakeside, Triversal will stimulate those brain muscles while relaxing the soul, providing a challenging exercise for the mind and a soothing experience that will melt the stress away.
- Compatible With Most Control Inputs: Whether you prefer a classic keyboard + mouse combo or a gamepad, Triversal has options for days, including full controller support, touch, and even remote play on tv, phone, or tablet.
- Ask the Audience: For content creators who stream games, nothing is more embarrassing than getting stuck on a particularly difficult section. Luckily, Triversal offers the “Streamer Assist feature”, an optional overlay that adds numbered labels to the puzzles, allowing viewers to play along in chat by suggesting solutions.
- A Different Kind of Challenge: With multiple modes of play available, including Puzzle Pack, Daily Puzzle, Endurance, and Sandbox, players can dictate exactly what kind of experience they want to enjoy.
Triversal is now available for Windows PC via Steam for $11.99 USD.
