Vectorpark’s Flash-based games raise the bar with their mix of beautiful art, exploration, and a strong sense of glee.

Windosill finds a pitch-perfect balance between Magritte-inspired surrealism and an old-world craftsmanship for building children’s toys. The result is a short, sweet adventure of a wooden train making its way through a series of puzzle rooms. In each you must find the cube to open the door, via interaction with the creatures and objects.

It’s extremely short – 20 minutes at most. But there’s something so inherently lovely about it that you’ll want to throw $3 at the creator just for existing. Play the first half for free on theWindosill website (opens in new tab).
