Games: The puzzle of life and death
She Remembered Caterpillars (PC/Mac) 4 Stars, Age: 7+
With a title like that, you'll be unsurprised to learn this €12 indie effort can be filed under 'quirky'.
SRC presents as a simple puzzle game involving colour-matching and character-swapping. But it's interwoven with a backstory of love and loss, and the relationship between parents and children.
You might not make the connection at all between the two, but the puzzles in the foreground are ample reward. Decorated in a pretty, organic art style, SRC asks you to guide characters to their goals, with the paths gated according to colour.
It begins simply - blue blobs can pass over only blue bridges, for instance - but scales in difficulty when colour-mixing and multiple characters are introduced.
SRC is a contemplative little jewel whose puzzles begin to outstay their welcome only in the latter stages.
