Bluefish Games: The Curious Stairs of Mr. Hincks

Bluefish Games … I think we can all agree they’re one of the most loved game making couples in the world. Which is why it it’s just so exciting when they make something new!

The Curious Stairs of Mr. Hincks (shortened hereafter as The Curious Stairs) is a shorter (though you’d never be able to tell with my completion time!), sweet introduction to the world of Hincksyland. It’s bright, colourful and absolutely charming.
