Neither really a game, nor an experience, GNOG is like a child's quest for discovery, and incorporates the wonder and charm you would expect from such an offering all through simplistic, almost minimalistic, design. It's so very fleeting, taking a mere hour to complete, but it's something that will stick with you for its terrific presentation and concept.

Gnog is an extremely relaxing game about fiddling with surreal puzzle boxes. Its short length is well worth the price of admission. Buy it.

GNOG is something of a "mechanical" puzzle game in that you solve the puzzles by manipulating various switches, knobs, sliders, and buttons, but the overall experience goes far beyond that. With a trippy art style reminiscent of the LSD-enhanced art of the 1960's and a unique musical sound, GNOG is a game that doesn't take itself too seriously and encourages you to just play with it, and maybe even solve a puzzle now and then.

It's just simply a wonderful creation that you absolutely should buy and play. It's brief – the nine levels will perhaps take you a couple of hours – but a splendid couple of hours they are. Daft, fun, exuberant and very pretty, it captures a sense of joy like little else.

If you have a PSVR setup at your home, GNOG is an absolute don't miss. It's a stunning and immersive experience, and it's an experience that you can also easily share with your friends and family. As a TV based puzzler too, it's pretty darn good, just a little less worth the $20 price tag on it.

GNOG is a bizarre collection of puzzles with unique style, unusual concept and problems with game design. Developers simply forget to give necessary hints and tips to solve the puzzles. As a result it is very easy to get stuck in and start to experience unpleasant emotions. These feelings are compounded by annoying music, which consists of several samples and plays in a circle. Fortunately, the game can be completed without new-fangled VR-gadget, but you are likely to be disappointed in any way.

GNOG is a wonderful puzzle game. Its colorful graphics, oniric mood and thoughtful puzzles makes it worth a look for every fan of the genre. Unfortunately, its very short length makes it miss the must-have category.

GNOG is a unique puzzle game that offers interesting visuals, interactive and music infused puzzles, and seems more like an interactive art exhibition than an actual game.

I enjoyed my time with the game for my GNOG review. It's a colorful and charming release with some clever puzzle toy things you can interact with for a couple of hours or so as you try to find the solution to each micro puzzle that will, in turn, contribute to bringing you closer to the larger puzzle at hand. The game can be played either on PS4 as is or you can jump into its PS VR compatible mode to really get into the puzzles as you manipulate each toy, so that's a nice bonus for those of you who own Sony's latest hardware add-on.

The only people I wouldn't recommend this to are those looking for a challenging, more-traditional puzzle game or those who have a distaste for games that can be labelled ‘casual'. But those with a PSVR should take this as a heads-up, this game is a great addition to the still limited PlayStation VR line-up. And it's also a good title to have in your normal PS4 library as well. GNOG serves as a great way to spend an afternoon and one of those rare occurrences where you'll want that earworm (albeit a relaxed, whimsical one) floating around in your brain.
