Hiversaires creator releases hand-drawn puzzle adventure Oquonie onto the App Store

Oquonie, the latest minimalist brain-teaser from the creator of Hiversaires, is now available on the App Store.

Set in a hand-drawn, black-and-white world, Oquonie is a peculiar puzzle-adventure which seems to delight in confusing the player.

There are no instructions or intelligible text to explain the plot or purpose of the game. You are simply placed in a grid-based, isometric world, and left to your own devices.

A couple of exploratory taps later, and you'll find you can move your character around the office environment, and interact with objects.

To escape each area, you must solve strange riddles by deciphering unusual symbols, and negotiating with a series increasingly bizarre looking characters.

As with first-person head-scratcher Hiversaires, Oquonie's brand of unapologetically tough puzzling is something of an acquired taste. However, if you fancy biting off a mouthful, you can download it for £1.99 / $2.99 from the App Store right now.
