On July 25, 2024, the much-anticipated game “Arranger: A Role-Puzzling Adventure” will be released for PlayStation 5. This innovative game combines elements of role-playing and puzzle-solving, creating a unique gameplay experience.

The story follows Jemma, a small-town misfit, as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Jemma leaves her comfortable but stifling hometown to explore a fascinating world filled with challenges and an immovable force called “static.” Her goal is to disrupt this static and bring change to a world caught in stagnation.

The gameplay of “Arranger” is distinct, utilizing a grid-based system where Jemma’s movements affect the entire game world. When Jemma moves, everything in the same row or column moves with her. This mechanic adds a layer of complexity, turning each movement into a puzzle. Players will navigate through various dungeons, solving puzzles to progress. The game is designed to be accessible, offering assist options for players who prefer a more relaxed experience​​.

One of the standout features of “Arranger” is its art style. The game’s visual design is led by David Hellman, known for his work on the puzzle-platformer “Braid.” The art combines elements of comic book panels with traditional game visuals, creating an immersive and emotional storytelling experience. The narrative unfolds through these comic-style cutscenes, adding depth to Jemma’s adventure​​.

“Arranger” is not just about puzzles. It offers a breezy RPG experience without the typical elements like experience points (XP) or inventory management. Instead, the game focuses on exploring and understanding its mechanics. Players will encounter quirky characters and battle strange monsters, all while solving puzzles that challenge their understanding of the game’s unique grid system​​.

The game’s development team, Furniture & Mattress, includes experienced creators like Hellman and designer Nico Recabarren, known for the game “Ethereal.” Together with composer Tomás Batista, they have crafted a game that blends artistic visuals, engaging puzzles, and a compelling narrative​​.

For those eager to get a taste of “Arranger” before its release, a demo is available for PC. The game will also be available on Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, and for iOS and Android through Netflix​​.
