Sokobond Express - coming February 22

After several years of hard work we are excited to share that Sokobond Express, a beautifully minimalist puzzle game that combines chemical bonds and puzzling pathfinding in novel ways, will be launching on Steam on Thursday, February 22nd.

If you want to feel like a chemistry wizard (without any upfront chemistry knowledge), Sokobond Express removes all the guesswork while immersing you in its thoughtfully curated and surprisingly deep gameplay.

If you liked our previous games we think you’ll love Sokobond Express. It combines the pathfinding of Cosmic Express with the deep but elegant atom building from Sokobond - paying homage to its predecessors while also being an elegant and entrancing game of its own.

You can wishlist now and play on February 22nd here:
