Stephen's Sausage Roll isn’t flashy, but those who love cracking tough puzzles should rise to this challenge

Stephen's Sausage Roll is a rare, beautiful thing. It's a game where every aspect of it is designed with such incredible care and efficiency that it actually comes together as one cohesive whole. I've been intentionally vague on specifics in order to preserve the sense of exploration and excitement that comes with discovering something brand new for when you play it yourself. Please don't dismiss it because of the price or the fact that you think it looks ugly, because you'd be missing out on one of the greatest games I have ever played.

Its concept may seem silly at first, but the latest title from prodigious indie developer Stephen Lavelle is one of the most difficult puzzle games ever made

The game is almost literally built for those who, as kids, couldn't help playing with their food.

Stephen Lavelle deserves a pat on the back. Creating a quality puzzle game with a concept as quirky as this is one thing, but going above and beyond to put so much care into crafting such a near-immaculate set of puzzles equally brutal yet forgiving is full-on applause-worthy. To put it simply, Stephen’s Sausage Roll might be some of the meatiest and most delicious food for the mind you’ll taste all year.

Right now, Stephen’s Sausage Roll is the sixth game in the long (loooooong) list of games and tools featured on Stephen’s Increpare Games website, all of which he’s created himself within an incredibly short space of time. The vast majority of those games are free – and I’d urge you to check them out – but Stephen’s Sausage Roll is not. It’s one of the very few things that Stephen’s created that you have to pay for. But you should; it’s worth every penny. And not just because it comes with ketchup.

Stephen’s Sausage Roll is tough and tumbly, with a greater emphasis on one’s own form than any other puzzle game, which usually waiver the avatar as too grotesque of its gorgeous world.
