A Monster’s Expedition is a chill puzzle game about shoving trees

One space at a time

A Monster’s Expedition – an open-world puzzle game about rolling logs to build makeshift bridges and hop between islands – looks neat. It’s wholesome in a way I can really get behind, especially in 2020.

As the titular monster explorer, you’ll set out to learn more about humankind. There are “hundreds of islands to visit – some right in front of you, others well off the beaten track for true puzzle lovers.”

A Monster’s Expedition is coming to Steam and itch.io this year from Alan Hazelden, a developer you might recognize from Cosmic Express, A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build, or Sokobond.

At the very end of the trailer, there’s a glimpse of a Reverse Mermaid, a vile creature I won’t ever acknowledge again except right this second, to voice my displeasure. The legs are too much!

Wishlist this, file it away in your brain, or do whatever it is you do with sweet little indie games.
