Gnog is a puzzle game where you explore whimsical monster heads to interact and uncover the secret worlds inside them. To play you use the mouse or controller to grab, poke, spin, pull, and push each charming contraption.

It's a playful puzzle game about exploring monstrous virtual toys. Inspired by real-world toy designs each level hides within it layers of discovery. Grab a bookcase and spin it to reveal a hidden pile of coins, slide levers to navigate a damaged ship through outer space, crank a wheel to cook a stew on the stove.

As you progress, each interaction responds with lively feedback and surprising consequences. It's all accompanied with a relaxing and dynamic soundtrack that evolves with each level. You have to figure out what to do by experimenting but this is part of the joy of discovery.

The result is a weird and wonderful game that offers a combination of puzzle and narrative. As you uncover the worlds inside each monster you discover intricate and uplifting designs.
