One of the genres I keep going back to are simple puzzle games. There’s just something nice and relaxing about games like Tetris or Dr. Mario. Nothing life changing in terms of complexity, but a solid base that can be built upon with clever mechanics. This is what leads to hours and hours of fun. I’m hopeful today’s game joins several others as a wonderful timesink. That game is called Batu Ta Batu, and it’s developed by solo dev EZ Software Development and published by the good folks at 2Awesome Studio. Through their publishing branch, 2Awesome Partners, they’re bringing the game to all consoles and PC this week. The releases are staggered somewhat, but you can get the game on most consoles either today or tomorrow.

“The idea of Batu Ta Batu came from those memories, as a kid, where I remember playing with old plastic puzzles at my grandparents’ house. It was simple and fun, but brought on playful frustration at times. My goal was to create a more accessible and faster puzzle flow. Batu ta Batu is the result” – Zubiria
