Moncage offers a gorgeous blend of narrative threads and teasing puzzles, that makes for a game of real elegance.
Solutions are often clever and make the player feel smart, even if they call on the robust hint system for guidance. In a delightful surprise, the unfolding narrative connects to the seemingly random puzzles, though the story could be more impactful
The overarching story is a little muddled, but for the most part Moncage is a smart and elegant puzzle game that frequently harks back to the mechanical wizardry of The Room.
If you’re not moved to play it, consider watching an online playthrough of Moncage. It deserves to be seen.
Moncage is a puzzle game that should be treated like a collection of short stories rather than a novel. Enjoy it over several sessions, pausing when it's difficult to think about the different parts, rather than consume it as one experience. It's quite literally to be puzzled over.
It is difficult for me to show the full charm of Moncage through a simple text introduction, but the process of playing with it has undoubtedly brought me a lot of surprises.

If you like the slight off hand of a magician or the artistic brilliance of trompe l’oeil, then Moncage will not only be a visual delight but will truly engage those little grey cells in puzzle solving. Without the little frustrations around the collectables and the small bomb glitch, it would have scored our highest rating
Moncage captivates with its imaginative concept. The puzzles, which are focused on manipulating the cube to align objects in different universes, are impressive in their ingenuity and diversity. Sometimes the riddles demand confusing or very specific steps. However, the flexible tips system makes it easier to deal with this issue. The atmosphere is also remarkable with many elaborate areas and an unconventionally developed narrative that rewards our attention to details. In the end, Moncage is an outstanding puzzle that's very much worth your time.

Without words, 'Moncage' show touching stories between a father and a son. No combat, no death scenes. It's just interesting puzzles using optical illusion. But you may feel enough of tragedy of a war.
