I'm surprised a box puzzle game is getting so much attention, the adventure segments must really be great.
There is very little in the way of adventure elements in this game. Really it just comes down to talking to people at the bar and at landings and occasionally making a choice.
I won't deny that the story and presentation is part of what makes this game so compelling, but don't be so dismissive of block puzzles. They are well-designed, varied, and interesting. They require a combination of reflexes, planning, and sometimes a little luck. I would not have burned through this game in a weekend if I didn't find the core gameply fun.
