A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

A short puzzle experiment.

Sort through the notes of Jean-François Champollion to decipher the script of the ancient Egyptians. Use the mouse to manipulate ideas, placing them next to each other to arrive at new thoughts. Combine the right pieces to find the key to unlocking the translation.

Originally created for Ludum Dare 19, themed "Discovery", later refined a bit.

The development of the game is discussed in a devlog on TIGSource.
