And here’s what the game’s about, according to the devs:

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

– 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, colourful islands amidst tranquil tunes or play the guitar for cute creatures.

Solo: Islands of the Heart has been developed by Madrid, Spain-based studio Team Gotham. The console releases of the game are being handled by UK-based indie publisher Merge Games. For more information on the game, have a look at the game’s official website here.
