“The appearance of the various faces which combines both the features and easthetics of the Greek theater and traditional Japanese No theater,
makes the extremely precise level design all the more difficult and fascinating at the same time: they reward the mindful player but punishes the distracted one.”

What the Press says about the game...
“But after a few levels things pick up pace. The brain becomes engaged. The memory cells spark with activity. Your fingers smoke from the frenetic tap-mashing required to keep pace and beat the countdown.
The “challenge” comes less from the game and more from overestimating your own reflexes and faculties. ’But this game is so easy!’, you’ll cry after losing one of the later levels for the 5th time in a row.”
Canard PC (1st video game French magazine): 8/10
“Strange Masks is [...] the weirdest yet most enjoyable experience you can get for 4€.
It's a game that blends puzzles with orientation and memory. It would have been yet another good puzzle game but it's gameplay and minimalist design, unbelievably rendered, give to it
both a strange and mesmeric appeal.”
“[ Strange Masks ]s a pretty amazing little game, if only for cognitive reasons, so I hope that you look through its minimalist presentation and brave the demo, at least.
Definitely worth trying out, especially if you’re fond of puzzles and/or memory games in any capacity. And I guess if you’re fond of dungeon crawlers too.”
Artemz, playing on Desura : “ The game is really well made, graphics are far better than in an average indie game.”
