Square Valley is a unique and satisfying city-building puzzle game where you play as the Spirit of the Valley tasked with building lands for your citizens. The game offers a narrative-driven experience with lovely visuals and chill music. Each tile on the board has specific requirements that players need to pay attention to, adding a deep strategic thinking element to the game. Despite the focus on fulfilling requirements rather than building a particular aesthetic, Square Valley puts a creative spin on a tired genre, making it a highly compelling puzzle game that is well worth checking out.


What we like:
  • Deep strategic thinking element
  • Narrative-driven experience
  • Lovely visuals
  • Chill music
  • Satisfying gameplay
What could be improved:
  • No session suspension or save feature
  • Some building features such as walls and rivers are not entirely clear on how to 'paint' them onto the map
  • More focused on fulfilling requirements than building a particular aesthetic
