When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Join Clef on an adventure set on a magical sky island where her family once lived. Solve puzzles, discover secrets, and experience a story of sisterly love – and something more, if you are willing to dig deeper...

Puzzles For Clef is a relaxing adventure game focused on the eponymous heroine. Following a letter from her sister, Cres, our bunny friend Clef journeys to the island of her ancestors, to undertake a treasure hunt.. The journey will take her across a land of beauty, magic, and mystery, as she explores each of the island's regions, solves its countless puzzles, unearths long-forgotten secrets, and rediscovers her family's legacy.

Join the curious bunny Clef as she sets off on an expedition to explore a magical island in the sky after receiving an invitation and treasure map from her sister. Aid in her journey by solving intricate puzzles and cracking cipher codes to uncover secrets about Clef's ancestry as well as hidden treasures. Take up quests from native animals throughout bamboo forests, clock towers, crystal mines, and other whimsical environments.

Every puzzle and character has a piece of the greater mystery, calling for the investigation of all corners one by one. Search each nook and cranny for secret items and energy crystals like tonitrum and lumenium to aid in the restoration of the bell shrines.

After each search, visit the bell shrines to restore serenity to all of the island's regions and enjoy the tuneful winds that accompany each chime. In the early stages of development, Puzzles for Clef was nominated for the Critics Choice, Best Art, Best Audio, and Rising Star awards at Indie Cup, the largest indie game competition in Eastern Europe.

The treasure hunt is a birthday gift from one sister to another. It's an invitation to a world full of magic and mystery!

  • Visit nine distinct regions, from a serene bamboo forest to an opulent floating castle.
  • Each region has its own, distinct feel and secrets to discover!
  • Every puzzle found in each zone aims to challenge your wit!

It's not just Clef and Cres on the island. Many people make their home there, with personal quests they can share with Clef.

  • Meet the Lord of the island and his associates!
  • Many have memorable quests for Clef to accomplish.
  • Find a variety of items dear to the locals throughout Clef's travels.

The journey to give the bells back their voice is not a linear one. Clef will need your help.

  • Dozens of puzzles and ciphers await to be solved.
  • Each is designed to be logical and understandable.
  • No pixel hunts or moon logic: every task is meant to be challenging yet relaxing, not frustrating!

The floating island is a place of mystery, wonder, and endless secrets.

  • With each completion of the treasure hunt steps, secrets of the ancient island will slowly be revealed!
  • Every secret might answer a question - but also unlock even more puzzles to complete.
  • Discover the history of the island and Clef's ancestry.

By the way, don't worry about monsters or dangers. Cres would never put her sister's life in danger.

  • Clef is free to explore and experience the island at her leisure, breaks encouraged!
  • Fret not about death or danger or recycled enemy types
  • It's just a bunny and her puzzles.

Puzzles For Clef comes to PC (Steam) on July 27, 2023, and it will be available on the Nintendo Switch later in 2023.
