Stained glass art is pretty, but making it is painstaking, backbreaking work. Good thing, then, that you can get the experience virtually in a new puzzle game from Error300 Games: Mosaic Chronicles.
On each screen, you’re given a canvas and many pieces of stained glass. Each piece will only fit in one spot, and you must find it, much like a cardboard puzzle (but prettier to look at). The art you’re assembling illustrates two stories from Belarusian author Olga Gromyko: “A Bit of Horoscoping” and “The Lucky Knot.” Each completed piece tells a part of the story and you’ll learn more as you play.
Marina Makarevskaya, the director and designer of Mosaic Chronicles, says she got the inspiration from staring at art created for another game. “While working on a different game, I looked at Lena Maćków’s stunning art and realized that it would be just perfect for a puzzle game,” she says. “But a game also needs a story. Since I read a lot and used to work as a translator, I kept in touch with some of the authors I worked with in the past—such as Olga Gromyko, who has written captivating short stories and novellas. The rest, as they say, is history!”
Experience two Olga Gromyko stories – “A Bit of Horoscoping” and “The Lucky Knot” – from a whole new perspective!
Enjoy beautiful stained-glass mosaics that you can assemble piece by piece.
