The Shape of Things, a Rubik’s style puzzler that uses 3D objects releases May 26th onto Steam

From Press Release:

Hyper Three Studio announced that their newest title will be released later this month, on 26th May. In The Shape of Things, you experience a relaxing atmosphere from the comfort of your cosy room by solving small 3D puzzles inside collectable gachapons and finding the original shape of things inspired by Rubik’s style.

The developer is known for another puzzle game, Tiny Lands, which was released over 2 years ago on Steam, where it currently holds 93% of positive reviews from players. It was later released on Nintendo Switch, where it was also warmly welcomed by the community.

The Shape of Things offers a similar graphics style with a warm colour palette. The gameplay shows a completely new approach, though. Have a look at the date announcement trailer, and it will all become clear in 30 seconds ;)

About the game

The Shape of Things takes Rubik’s cube’s basic concept but focuses on real-life objects with a more soothing vibe. Puzzles appear in various combinations. You need to find the correct position for each piece by rotating, panning, or scaling until you find the shape of things.

Just like in real life, mystery worlds are trapped in gachapon, waiting for their release. By solving puzzles, you obtain in-game coins, which can be spent on the gacha machine to unlock your next world.

Key features:

  • No pressure and no timers. Just chill and progress at your own pace.
  • Easy to pick up and put down.
  • Adjust your cosy room mood by changing the weather and the time of the day.
  • Comfy to play using only 1 hand (The other hand is for a hot drink!)
  • Pleasing sound effects and atmosphere.
  • Original soothing background music.
  • Good for just chatting and streaming with your community!
  • Play across adorable thematic worlds!
  • No punishment system. Life is hard enough!
