The Signs Are Everywhere…
Rituals: Book of Skog, from a UK-based indie studio Curioso Games, is a result of an exploratory journey to create an immersive puzzle game with a horror twist. Differing from the playful aesthetics of traditional, casual puzzle games, Rituals is an unpredictable display of moody visuals, unsettling effects and captivating original music.
Even the simplest of puzzles can become a challenge in these conditions and Rituals thrives on surprising its players. While the scary themes make the game unsuitable for children, the accessible mechanics and atmospheric setting make for a fun experience even for those with no prior knowledge of mobile gaming.
In the game, players trek across Skog, performing rites by matching symbols to cleanse an area of evil that comes in many guises. From mysterious wardens to cursed artifacts, there are various challenges and jumpy surprises hiding all around these woods.
