What starts as a novelty evolves into a collecting challenge where interacting with one item leads to another. Rescue a stray cat, awaken an ancient snake-spirit, re-enact a moon landing or travel back in time. Each object has a story to tell as you push and pull it around. You don’t win or lose, but you do progress through the series of different objects.
Infant-school children will enjoy the simple object recognition and how one thing magically transforms into another with their careful interactions.

We've documented 3 accessibility features for Getting Started in Vignettes which deal with what support is offered to get started with the game. This includes customising the experience when you first open the game via any onboarding processes it provides as well as tutorials and other assistance when you first start playing.
Assistance Getting Starting
These features aid your play of the game in terms of cognitive load on learning controls, dealing with pressure and coping with the environment and challenges.
Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions. This means you don't need to quickly press a button in response to an on-screen prompt, target a fast-moving target or skillfully complete a scenario against the clock.
Low Pressure: Game tasks aren't time-limited or there's a low-pressure mode. This avoids the pressure of being put on the clock for overarching missions, or failing tasks because you didn't reach a destination in time.
Assistance For Progressing
These features aid your progress through the game offering different ways of maintaining your progression.
Save Progress Anytime: The game automatically saves progress or you can save any time. This doesn’t mean you never lose progress, but it does mean you can stop whenever you want (without having to get to a save point) without losing progress.
