Reviews

“At a time when I'm feeling a bit exhausted by half-finished behemoths, all with tangled lists of planned features, unfolding Please, Don't Touch Anything's little machine was pleasantly isolating and captivating.”
7/10 – PC Gamer

“I originally decided to give this game a quick look before bedtime and ended up 2 hours later hunched over the computer in dim lamp light surrounded by hastily scribbled out math.”
8/10 – TechRaptor

“Only once in a blue moon do the stars align to bring us a game as well-crafted and meaningful as Please, Don't Touch Anything.”
8.5/10 – GameGrin

About This Game


Please, Don’t Touch Anything is a cryptic, brain-racking button-pushing simulation.

Covering for a colleague who is taking a bathroom break, you find yourself in front of a mysterious panel which only component is a red button. And since you’ve clearly been instructed not to touch anything, the only thing you want to do now is push that damn button.

Push it and expect to be held liable for any unintended aftermath. And there will be many.

Complicated puzzle game with misterious signs. I had solved 18 stages with my bro and still have several hints but I don't know how to apply. Finally I reveal some guides to see what is the hints and I may solve 3 stages more if I took more time to solve. However, I thought I never solve the remainings which are quite crazy. Well, that's ok. I was really enjoyed this game and would recommend to you. It can make you crazy sometimes but mostly have fun.

5/10 Mediocre

Too confusing for my liking. The game advertises itself as a mysterious puzzle game, but in reality it's just a completely unintelligible mess that's just a bunch of random numbers and references that dosen't relate to eachother.

With a guide, I saw everything in the entire game in 1-2 hours. Though I guess the point is that you are supposed to spent hours and hours trying random numbers into the keypads until you're lucky.

The music and pixel art are nice but don't offer much to such a simple game. The story is non-existent.

I don't feel ripped off because it was at the least an interresting game, but I wouldn't recommend ever buying this for full price. If you are curious, I recommend getting it for 1 euro or so, and you might have an interresting evening with this.

Got this game as a puzzle lover, but I found that I got stuck in parts. Then I used a really helpfull guide that let me solve the harder puzzles with simple clues, & had black marker hidden answers for when you really needed it. Had an amazing time with a bit of help.
I recommend it. A game of simple structure, with a beautiful view.

I pressed all of the buttons. I solved all of the puzzling endings. And I loved every second of it. If you want to think a little in this genuine and thoughtful puzzle game, please spend a few bucks to buy this game. I assure you, you will not be let down. And remember: everything is not what it seems at first!

From the simplest concept, one of the (casual) games I enjoyed playing the most.

As the exact opposite of what the game title reads, this game is about trying to mess with with the higher amount of things possible on the board, reading the hints, deducing the hints, guessing with almost no hints to obtain up to 25 different "unique" endings with lots of easter eggs and general, simple fun.
Art style/realization, music and audio effects are perfectly blended with each other and give the player a very good gaming experience (and the soundtrack is somewhat good, nothing stellar, but definitely good and, again, perfectly fitting with the rest of the art style).

There are actually no negative aspects of this game, because if it was "longer" it would have been too long (to complete the game, without the "perfectionist" achievement it takes roughly from 2~3 to 5~7 hours depending on how good you are at reading the hints), if it was fancier you'd probably have lost the unique pixel feeling and a full-price tag of 5€ is just the perfect price for what you get.

Again there are no reason not to recommend this game to everyone, play it and enjoy.

I was heavily and pleasantly surprised with this game. I can't say for sure what I was expecting, but, well, it wasn't that.

Which is a good thing! The element of surprise works wonderfully with the game, that always creates new and interesting things to do in the room you're in. I really liked how all the elements of the interface in the game are utilized - you have to pay attention to the smallest clues and details, and this investigation was very rewarding.

The puzzles are very interesting and challenging, and I loved the meta-like style - using paper, taking notes, making calculations and logic deductions, the game has kept me engaged throughout with a diverse set of actions. It was challenging and ultimately, a excellent experience.

I think the only problem I have is that there could've been... more. Not in content or in lenght, but some semblance of narrative or a bigger theme, which some similar games have. As it is, the game is more like a puzzle box, a way to explore a single environment. It's great at that, mind you, but there could be more to make the experience more fullfiling and memorable.

Still, extremely recommended, even more so if you can grab it on sale.

Best thing about indie games is that every now and then a game comes along that fills a niche you did not even know existed. Please don't Touch Anything i guess fills your inner need to um... touch everything.... and then see what happens and jot down things on paper in vain hopes of getting different endings and achievements. Yup that's what it does.

Well it works like the toilet in a train i tell you. Got lots of hours out of this one. Recommended to avoid guides until you are so stuck your head is spinning.

It was a dificult decision as to whether or not to give this game a positive or negative review.
In the end, this game deserved a positive, but only conditionally:
I picked this game up for less than a dollar in a sale, and would recommend anyone interested in this title to do the same. I CANNOT recommend this game at the full price, but anything under a couple dollars seems reasonable.

I got all achievements in under two hours, and had to leave the game idle for an additional hour to recieve all the card drops from steam. This being said, I tend to complete games a bit quickly, and this might take some people a few more hours to complete.

This gametakes on a very "click random things until something new happens" approach at certain points. Some of the puzzles are very clever and satisfying to solve. Others seemed tedious, forced, or convoluted forcing the player to mindlessly click around and hope for the best. Sometimes, the game made me very bored (like that one time you have to click a button 666 times in a row). It seems to be about 50% challenging and 50% horrible. There is no story here. The game seems to converge on the same outcome, but in several ways that are not tied together.

In addition, there is little to no replayability. Fun while it lasts (mostly) but will probably sit in your library never to be touched again after completion.

On the bright side, this was a challenge that brought a couple good hours of logical thinking, puzzle solving, and careful observations of the room around you. For those few hours, there was some heavy note taking, calculations galore, and a few anguished sighs as solutions that were thought up turned out to be wildly incorrect. A good game to spend an afternoon or evening on.

TL;DR
Get on sale. Somewhat tedious at times. Challenging, but enjoyable if you don't cheat.

This is a fun little game in which you touch, or don't touch, things. And then stuff happens. And before you know it you're wanting to figure out every last bit of this strange machine. The pixel art is great, and the music is excellent, making you want to keep prodding and poking away. If you like puzzles that involve figuring out contraptions, and enjoy that with a side of humour, this is worth getting for its small price.
