A Little To The Left is a puzzle game where you are tidying a house into meticulous order. Each puzzle presents everyday objects and some evidence of how they should be organised. The challenge is you have to deal with the mischievous cat who likes to make a mess.

Play involves moving items around, rotating and stacking them. Your task is to arrange objects into curious patterns. However, there are multiple satisfactory solutions for each puzzle. The aim is not so much to get it right but to find a way to consistently organise the items that is satisfying to you.

Which way should the clock hands point? How should you arrange the eggs? Come to understand the motivation behind the whimsy of an individual by arranging their home as they intended. As you do you learn about the person who lives here and the challenges they face.

Coming first to PC/Mac. Then in 2022 to Switch and mobile.
