I'm not sure if there was a bit of an issue with the pre-registration, if there was even supposed to be a pre-registration, or if Annapurna just decided to launch it for fun, but Gorogoa is now out on Google Play.

Gorogoa, if you've not had the pleasure of playing just yet, is a clever, hand-drawn puzzler which took several years to perfect. In it, you've got to investigate meticulously made panels to find the story in each of them. By dragging and dropping frames over each other in the right order you'll discover there's more to the challenge than meets the eye.

We thought it was rather delightful, awarding it an incredibly rare Platinum Award, saying: "Gorogoa's thousands of illustrations coalesce into a cleverly designed puzzler that's as compelling to play as it is to watch."

Since it made it onto a few of our personal 'Top five games of the year 2017', mine included, it's safe to say it's a puzzler well worth investing in. You can grab it now on Google Play for £3.79 or, if you've not yet picked it up, on the App Store for £4.99/$4.99.
