Cocoon reminds me of another iconic puzzle adventure, Journey. Everything about Cocoon is a mystery waiting for you to explore.
VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "The allure of capturing a "Playdead-esque" appeal by imitators (Stela) or former employees now with their own studio (Somerville) is a fad that crops up now and again. Geometric Interactive's tightly-knit history suggested it'd take a similar path too, but despite sharing connective tissue – especially in its Indie Game™ presentation – the subtle shifts away from the past result in something more vibrant and memorable. It's not merely felt from a different camera perspective, but in how the recursive worlds-within-worlds concept breathes unique life into so many of your interactions as well. To manage this while sustaining such imagination ranks Cocoon among my favorite puzzle adventures of recent memory."
“Wow; October was packed! So, here are my top picks for the very best indie games from the previous month in 12 unique categories.” - A.J. Maciejewski from Video Chums.
At every turn, I was left almost breathless by the beauty and ingenuity in Cocoon. It’s a staggeringly brilliant game with which words cannot really do justice.
