A downloadable world for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Live in a world of opaque puzzles ridden with unnamed symbols. There is no one here to explain. Nothing ever makes sense. Nothing ever makes sense. Nothing ever makes sense. Nothing ever makes sense. Nothing ever makes sense.

The first, we were unlike them.
It is a prison for the latter few.


This demo features slightly more than 100 puzzles, four unique puzzle mechanics and a savefile system with unlimited profiles. For colorblind people, there is a mode that allows you to change all the colors which you might need to distinguish - with presets for different kinds of colorblindness.


If you liked Xau and want to hang out with people who like it, feel free to join the Ampersandia discord to talk about it and see more of my work!
