Description

Optica is a mind-bending puzzle game of logic and illusion.

Embracing simplicity with a geometric design, Optica reveals puzzles in complex and mind-bending ways. From curious shapes and optical illusions to unexpected perspectives, Optica puts spatial thinking to the test through 70+ challenging levels.

Create pathways of light while strategically connecting the spaces along the way. But not all is what it seems. Rotate shapes to shift your perspective, discover hidden planes, and traverse optical illusions.

As the spiritual successor to the award-winning Strata, Optica embodies a similar puzzle-solving philosophy with an entirely new twist.

A Spiritual Successor

As the spiritual successor to the award-winning Strata, Optica embodies a similar puzzle-solving philosophy with an entirely new twist.

ABOUT STRATA
A truly unique puzzle experience that embraces simplicity, elegance, and challenge. Strata paints a simple yet challenging puzzle game onto a sophisticated canvas of color and sound. Test the limits of your brain by completing complex weaves of color to solve the puzzles.

The goal of Strata is to strategically layer colored ribbons to match a pattern. Using forethought and strategy you must sequence your moves correctly. Over time patterns emerge and your tactics may evolve, but Strata will keep you on your toes with increasingly difficult puzzles.
