Google Play named this year’s Indie Games Festival winners. Among the games from Europe, the minimalist puzzle Quadline by Ivan Kovalov from Kyiv received an award.
Ivan Kovalov is a designer, musician, indie developer who lives in Kyiv. And this is not the first time that an artist wins Google competitions. In 2019, his game G30 – Memory Labyrinth (iOS version here) was awarded as part of the Google Play Indie Games Contest. In addition, the G30 was listed in Apple App Store’s Best New Games, The Guardian’s Best New Mobile Games 2018, Macworld’s Best iPhone and iPad Games 2018, Le Monde’s Best Video Games of May, and more.
The new Quadline project is, at first glance, a very simple, minimalist, and abstract puzzle with very interesting game mechanics related to the rotation and movement of squares. And importantly, there are no timers or pressure on the player — pure relaxation and brain exercise.
Quadline can be purchased for $1.99 from the Apple App Store for Mac, iPhone/iPad and Apple TV, or you can get it for free at Google Play, but with ads.
