Puzzle game Baba is You is coming to break your brain

Baba is You is a puzzle game that won both Best Student Game and Best Design at the IGF Awards. On the surface it's a game about collecting flags by pushing blocks and crossing obstacles, but what makes it brain-breaking is that the rules of each level are a part of the level you can interact with.

Bab is You comes out March 13 on Steam, Humble, and
