Explore shapes that change into different objects as you spin them around with your fingers. 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.

Unfortunately, Vignettes is not available on Mac, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme:

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Vignettes in the following list:

Nurture Child-Like Imagination in 3-6 Year-Olds

These games are for children under seven years old, who will, with some help, discover activities they want to try that will expand their imaginations while establishing the role of your guidance and engagement as part of the gaming world as they grow up. The more open imagination of young children lends itself to games that offer an open world. Rather than forcing the player in a particular direction open world games let players explore wherever they want. The games here offer unusual and age-appropriate experiences that are often educational but keep the emphasis on the sheer joy of interactive play rather than hard learning.
