Reviews

“The artwork is gorgeous, the puzzles are clever, and everyone playing it, including my wife, were having a blast.”
Nintendo Fuse

“Though the [2018 PlayNYC demo] only lasted about five or ten minutes, it was enough for me to get a good glimpse into the world of Way of Rhea, and now I’m looking forward to going back when the game releases.”
Tech Raptor

“[Way of Rhea] is a puzzle game that reminds me a bit of Hue, but unlike Hue, lays everything out in front of you, choosing to double down on a sense of whimsy as opposed to a sense of minimalist mystery.”
Indie Hangover

About This Game



Way of Rhea is a picturesque puzzle platformer—without the platforming. Solve mind bending color puzzles, unlock new areas of a vibrant hub world, and talk to NPCs to unravel the mysteries of a world you left behind!

The Puzzles



Way of Rhea starts out with a small set of rules, and quickly builds from there. As the game progresses you're challenged to take advantage of the interaction between each new feature you're taught with those you've already mastered.

Each puzzle in Way of Rhea is hand crafted to teach a unique lesson—there's no filler. Some puzzles are easy, some are hard, but each will leave you with that "aha!" feeling you get from a good puzzle.

Undo / Redo



While the game's puzzles can be challenging, the game itself is forgiving—a flexible undo/redo system lets you quickly explore possible solutions, and correct any mistakes you made along the way. Solving the puzzles is difficult, executing on the solutions is easy. You won't find difficult platforming challenges in this game.

Biomes



Way of Rhea takes place in a number of different biomes, each with its own unique twist. Each biome contains multiple levels, with each level teaching you a new skill that has the potential to unlock more areas of the hub world.

Here are some notable biomes from the game:

  • Forest — The game starts you off in the forest biome. This biome consists of four separate levels which serve as you introduction both to the basic puzzle mechanics, and to the world itself. You'll learn how to change colors, how to operate teleporters, how the various fields work, how the physics of the game work, and you'll eventually graduate to some more advanced puzzles.
  • Circuit World — The circuit biome introduces a new mechanic—circuits, powered by the colored orbs. Place an orb on the circuit, and any connected elements matching that orb's color will activate—but what if there are elements of multiple colors? The circuit levels start you off with the basics, working there way up to advanced circuit puzzles. Once beaten, other areas of the game that use circuits will be unlocked.
  • Ice World — The ice world is home to a large number of friendly, but shy crab-like creatures. These little animals love to walk back and forth and push buttons, but, they don't understand the ramifications of their actions—it's up to you to learn their behavior, and work with them to solve puzzles using mechanics from other biomes that would be unsolvable alone.
  • And more...
