Gorogoa, the IndieCade 2012 winner for visual design, is filled with exquisite hand-drawn illustrations.

Connecting or stacking each tile into a grid opens a "window" into the next tile set with startling seamlessness, joining seemingly unrelated sketches into a larger, complete picture. The last time we realized a surreal, cosmic connection exists between everything, our eyes looked like the one in the image above.
