Empty is a minimalist puzzle game that teaches the value of simplicity in life. You rotate and interact with different vignettes to line up items with the same background colour. As you do this they disappear and the scene slowly empties.

The game has a novel puzzle mechanic that matches the simple visual style. The flat shading makes the room contents seamlessly blend with the background, enabling you to match objects and empty the room. Your goal is to find an angle where objects visually disappear, and progress to the next location.

Each level starts with a stylish narrative that reminds the player to appreciate simplicity in life — to value the small victories and cherish experiences instead of things. To progress to the next level the player has to solve the previous one. The level difficulty is generally low, making it accessible for all ages.
