a sokoban revamped board game in an alien sci-fi universe

I wrote this game mostly throughout 2020, along with the soundtrack recordings I made on my guitar. For me it was more of an exercise intended to train my skills on mobile programming using React Native and Expo and get some understanding about apps publishing process.

So, just on the last weekend I decided to pull it out of the drawer and make it public. Finally, it got approved by Google and published on Play Store:

Sorry for those on iOS, but at the moment I have no good reason to give $100 per year just to get an Apple dev account and be able to publish my free game on their platform. Maybe, in the future, in case I have a product worth a few dollars and a likely audience to pay for it I might reconsider. :P
