Description

Solo is an introspective puzzler set on a gorgeous and surreal archipelago. Reflect on your loving relationships by exploring contemplative, dream-like islands.

History

Solo was inspired by our beliefs and concerns about love experiences. As result of a painful break up of one of our teammates, creative director Juan de la Torre, we decided to make a game that could express how we feel about love. How difficult it is to love someone and how difficult it is to understand love itself. We want the player to think and introspect about relationships like we did during this period of our lives.

That’s why Solo is a game about love. About love as fuel, the force that drives us.

It is a universal feeling, but each of us experiences it in a different way. Individually, it holds different meanings depending on a variety of factors such as culture, gender, sexuality or traumas.

Solo was successfully funded on Fig by 543 backers who could both pledge and invest during the Fig campaign.

Features

  • Reflect on love’s place in your life with a personal and introspective branching narrative.
  • Combine blocks with different properties offering multiple solutions for most puzzles.
  • Contemplate and explore a living world: take photos of the charming, colorful islands amidst tranquil tunes or play the guitar for cute creatures.
