Factory Funner (Unfiltered Gamer): “This is going to be staying on the shelf for when we are feeling up for burning our brains with something that is quick but really thinky. We’ll also be pulling this out with a lot of non-gamers who we think will really resonate with trying to put together the best system and enjoy a good puzzle.”
