27th May 2020 - Athens, Greece - Greek developer beyondthosehills and publisher Plug In Digital are launching reky, a game of elegantly designed logic challenges, today on PC and Mac (Steam and itch.io) and Android. In reky fresh technical drawing aesthetics meet elegantly designed logic challenges in this minimalist puzzle title with just a dash of colour. 

You can watch the new PC launch trailer here.

A logic puzzle game, Reky marries an elegance of design with an architectural minimalist aesthetic to create an experience that is fresh, stylish and satisfyingly challenging. The player interacts with the different puzzle elements of each level, shifting and moving them in order to create a path to the goal. Everything in the game is simple and functional, with only cubes, lines, exits, portals and a dash of colour used to create a large variety of brain-teasing challenges.

Reky is inspired by architectural and artistic styles like Bauhaus and technical drawing.

The iOS version of the game was featured by Apple as the “Game of the day” in over 110 countries, is nominated for the design and illustration award EBGE and the dev team is nominated for Amaze’s Humble New Talent Award.

Features:

 

  • Elegant logic puzzles, escalating to extreme challenge levels
  • Aesthetics inspired by architectural minimalism
  • Beautiful ambient soundtrack
  • 96 levels to test yourself across
