The gods have fled to castles hidden within the clouds, cloaking themselves in mist amidst serene magics and obscured towers. Not really the safest environment for an airship pilot to be flying around in, though, which is what brings about a crash landing and a chance for puzzle-filled adventure in Pocket Kingdom.
After smashing into one of these tiny kingdoms while trying to get pictures of it for a crooked newspaper editor, you're left somewhat stuck, and the only way out is through getting to know the populace and solving the devious puzzles contained within the island's districts. A collection of wizards and cloaked figures are there to guide you, but they won't be much help when you're flicking switches, standing on pressure plates, flipping gravity, and fiddling with all manner of gadgets to solve environmental puzzles.
Built with a love of Steampunk pixel art and the Amiga era of gaming, Pocket Kingdom offers tons of different 2D puzzle-solving mechanics and a striking world hidden in the clouds.
And all the beards you can stand, too. Those are some dang fine beards, I have to say.
