| Stay, Mum

Lucid Labs is getting ready to break your heart with the arrival of Stay, Mum for iOS on October 29th.

It's a puzzle game about a little boy called John who experiences a strained relationship with his mother.

Every day, John's mother has to leave him behind as she heads off to work. While she's away, Joshn salves his loneliness by playing with coloured blocks.

Each of Stay, Mum's 70 levels is about constructing different shapes out of these blocks. There's a touch of surrealism, too, as John imagines the shapes to be different friendly creatures.

You have to construct the creatures as they'll then aid John in creating different shapes to solve the puzzles.

As you're progressing through the game, it's said that you'll learn "the truth about why John's mother has no time for her only son."

There's also the question of why John's mother gives him building blocks to play with. "What purpose do they hold?" teases Lucid Labs.

Stay, Mum will cost £2.29 / $2.99 when it comes out next week. We'll remind you of it again once you can buy it.
