Inner Tao is a puzzle game where you move two circles, manoeuvring objects to their destinations, marked by small squares. This starts simply but soon has you manipulating multiple elements and moving between the white and black halves of each puzzle. It's a complex puzzle that requires deep thinking but that is designed to offer a relaxing experience.

Gameplay is in the style of Sokoban puzzle games, where you push crates or boxes around a maze to get them to storage locations. However, unlike other versions where you are confined by the borders of the maze, here you can create portals with the crates themselves to move through walls.

The result is a short meditative puzzle game exploring a single deep mechanic at its fullest: the force of the opposites. With a yin-yang-esque aesthetic, the player controls two characters within a series of challenging puzzles.
