"Gorogoa" is a puzzle game where players move, arrange, and pile up the layers of a picture.
Although it seems like an old-fashioned game just by hearing about it, it features wonderful art and fantastic solutions, has no text at all, yet has a mysterious storyline and way of showing elements, and is full of a unique beauty that can only be found in this game.
The Game Designers' Award is decided based on creativity as the most important factor. However, if the game is not known, it cannot be voted for.
We think that few people will have played Gorogoa. However, multiple judges played the game and gave many votes, giving it the top spot this year for both the number of votes and the number of supporters.
We are sure that this game is completely unique.
