400 Years

Be patient while time passes.

[400 Years is] a thoughtful, meditative puzzle game about the passage of time. You play as a statue who sets off to prevent a "calamity" from occurring 400 years in the future. Mo'ai aren't particularly nimble, though, but they are patient: impassable rivers will freeze over in the winter, allowing safe passage. When faced with a high ledge, our stone-faced protagonist can plant a tree and wait for it to grow before climbing up.

It's a slick concept, and a 400 year countdown looms in the corner, reminding you not to dilly-dally too long — each press of the space bar advances the game one season, the trees losing their pixlelated leaves and then sprouting anew in the blink of an eye. The time constraints add just the right amount of urgency to an otherwise slow-going affair.
