Very interesting, but criminally short puzzle game. I finished it in about 30 minutes. This is a game you should 100% get if it is on sale.

Toybox time! In windowsil you push a car from left to right thru a series of rooms. The game can be finished in under ten minutes yet there is a lot of fun to have here. The rooms are basically full of interactive doodads along with the key to the next room. My mates children enjoyed the hell out of this game, and you know what, so did I, and for only 50c

Good
- intersting concept, an interactive toybox full of bells and whistles
- quirky fun
- plenty of content for the price
Bad
- short
- a couple of the rooms are much harder than the rest

Recommended 4/5

The replayability doesn't come from the challenge or even the gameplay, the whimsical surrealist are is enough.

Windosill is a lovely series of interactive scenes set on a theater stage.

The goal of the game is to find a cube to unlock the door to the next room. That's it. However, you really shouldn't see it as a game, but rather more as an interactive art piece. So take your time, relax, admire, and play.

It wonderfully succeeds in offering a pleasing and captivating experience to the player for a brief moment (it may take you only 15~30 minutes to finish).

Yet another puzzle game in the style of Amanita creations, with a very distinctive surrealistic art.

The game consists of 11 levels that have the same goal: you are required to move a toy car from one side on the room to another, by interacting with different abstract objects in a certain order. The objects react differently to your clicks, they surprise you with their reactions and discovering their meanings or roles is part of the fun of solving every puzzle. Putting it all together makes use of your creative thinking and seeing the picture in full is a very satisfying feeling.

What I liked a lot about this game was the difficulty of the levels: they’re neither too simplistic, nor too challenging, just the right amount to keep you wanting to solve the puzzle by yourself while being tempted to check a guide. I personally didn’t need to check a guide and I managed to find the solution to every puzzle only after a few minutes of poking around. The solution was never obvious, but the puzzles are designed so that you’ll always figure it out.

I think that this game would fit better on a touch screen device than on PC since it consists in a lot of experimenting with objects, clicking them or dragging them, and there’s no time limit or time requirement to solve the puzzles.

Although it’s quite short (45 mins – 1h), Windosill is a wonderful and relaxing experience, and I think it’s worth the price.

Short Verdict: A nice but short puzzle game about a toy locomotive (truck?) making its way through some levels, each with a distinct riddle. It's cute and totally worth playing, but don't expect much more than a great free flash game.

Pros:
  • Beautiful graphics with nice interactable objects
  • Interesting puzzles with unconventional logic that take some trial and error, but don't make you go running to look on guides
  • Manages to be fantastic, somewhat trippy, and still keep the puzzles to a sober level of difficulty

Cons:
  • Very short--beat it in half an hour
  • No replay value
  • Almost no BGM

Bought on / for: I traded it for a spare bundle key/link I had. Although its price is low, considering the minutes of fun you get, it might be a bit expensive. But if you end up with it in your Library, either by getting it in a bundle, trade, or somewhere else, you should really play it!

Similar games: It kinda reminded me of those Grow games from EYEZMAZE.

There is an inherently charming and magical quality Windosill; an enchanting playfulness that can't properly be put into words and is better enjoyed first hand. A point and click puzzle game encompassing ten inordinately imaginative rooms, it's neither challenging nor lengthy, but in the same way a short picture book can be hugely delightful, Windosill succeeds because of its simple design and childish sensibilities.

There is not a whole lot more I could say about Vectorpark's bite-sized treat of a game, and hopefully I don't need to to convince you it's worth your time. It's a brief expedition (about 30 minutes, depending on how good you are at puzzle solving) to another world, full of strange sounds and bizarre creatures, that is entirely unassuming in its execution. A gorgeous artistic endeavor, it shows that sometimes all a game needs to be worthwhile is a clear vision and a lot of passion to back it up.

It's the sort of game that is effortlessly relaxing; best enjoyed curled up with a blanket next to the fire, sipping a cup of cocoa and just enjoying life.

Exposition, Concurrence and Summation
I think... I think I have just witnessed a visualized concept of the imagination you once had and lose as you become an adult because life is a thing. And that was once present inside of you as a child when you look at something simple like a toy or a just a box on a shelf and develop impossible worlds that it could exist in right behind it. Either that, or I've gone completely insane.

This is a physics based puzzle game on its it face. It'll physics the ♥♥♥♥ out of you. The puzzles are very simple yet obscure in their solution. Its only about 30 minutes long unless you play around with the physics for awhile.

Either I'm having an very strong emotional reaction to this visual art piece or something has gone very wrong with my cognitive senses. I'm starting to tear up right now writing this after just finishing the game ...and I don't know why but I think I'm happy about it?

I think you should play this.

An artsy puzzle game with one goal. Get from A to B. To explain it any further will spoil the surprise.
Many puzzles are very easy, a few have some real tricks involving timing and interaction of several pieces. Overall a fun way to kill some time.

An interresting experience.

This is Windosill, the game is about a little car, who must travel from one window to the next, in order to reach the ending.

You can press pretty much anything in the windows, and there is diffrent puzzels you must solve in order to advance.

The game is VERY short, it will properly take you less then half an hour to complete this game, and therefore if you are one of those types who don`t like too short games, this will NOT be for you.

The game is very fantasy full, and every time you go into a new room, you are surpriesed, and really want to explore what`s inside.

Short but fun, thumps up. 5 out of 10

A short beautiful game that is all about playing, and gets even better when it starts playing back. I adored this thing.
