A Little to the Left hands on preview

As much as big, cinematic games tend to steal the show around this time of year, perhaps the most interesting game I played at Summer Game Fest this year was A Little to the Left. It’s a quaint, tactile puzzle game about arranging and straightening everyday household objects. The title is a passion project for Max Inferno, a two-person studio that has been developing the game for a little over a year now.

Publisher Secret Mode has announced that it’s teaming up with developer Max Inferno on A Little to the Left, an upcoming puzzle game. It will launch for Switch in August 2022.

According to Secret Mode, A Little to the Left “is a cozy puzzle game that has you sort, stack, and organize household items into pleasing arrangements, but you’ll need to keep an eye out for a mischievous cat with an inclination for chaos. The idea for the title was born from Annie and Lukas’ experience during the pandemic and the calming influence they found tidying and sorting had on their lives at the time.”
