A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Buy Now$9.99 USD or more

!! ATTENTION !! - It has been brought to my attention that MacOS Catalina and MacOS Big Sur may not successfully launch the game. This is most likely due to a signing system added to the OS and since The Golem is cross-compiled from Windows (via Unity) is beyond my control for now.

You are a small golem.

You face daunting puzzles.

No fast reactions are required and there is no timer. There is no exploration needed, nor secrets to discover.

Not everyone will overcome all the puzzles, and that's OK.

No matter how great or small your accomplishments, to take time to think about a difficult problem is a beautiful thing.

This game's level design is genuinely so good. Almost every puzzle has a unique set-up and solving them relies much more on deducing your overall goals and how you'll need to reshape the available pieces, rather than the rote block shuffling or trial-and-erroring dead ends that many sokoban style games devolve into. Progression even through a single level is rewarding as each realisation clicks into place and leads you towards the complete solution. The difficulty is high but always fair; there are no obscure interactions to miss or meta shenanigans to worry about.

I strongly recommend purchasing The Golem if you are a veteran puzzle gamer. The only downsides are the lacklustre BGM loop (muteable) and the awkward 'hold to rewind' control that can fail to undo a single misstep if you tap the button too quickly.

Update: A Mac version of the game has now been added.

Update: The game now includes an option to play in windowed mode.
