GNOG is a playful puzzle game about exploring monstrous virtual toys. Press, pull, slide, grab, click, and rotate every GNOG head to uncover its secrets!

  • 9 musical levels with whimsical puzzles to discover
  • A dynamic soundtrack composed by Marskye
  • Each level a unique hand-crafted experience
  • Play in standard mode or with optional VR support. Seamlessly switch between VR and standard play!

GNOG is a 3D puzzle game set in a tactile world of toys and secrets. Point, click, grab, poke, spin, pull, and play with uniquely charming monster heads as you explore the hidden worlds inside them. Filled with eye-catching designs, playful interactions, and a rich, reactive soundtrack, the hand-crafted heads come to life in either standard play or in VR.

Inspired by real-world toy designs, every GNOG head is a miniature world to discover. Grab a bookcase and spin it to reveal a hidden pile of coins, slide levers to navigate a damaged ship through outer space, crank a wheel to cook a stew on the stove – each playful interaction generates lively feedback and surprising consequences. Set to a relaxing and dynamic soundtrack that evolves with each level, the surreal worlds and joyful puzzles of GNOG will have you turning heads.

Hello I work with SideQuest at https://sidequestvr.com/#/ and I wanted to ask if you were at all considering a Oculus Quest port for your game whatsoever, It looks quite fun and having it on SideQuest would be a treat.  We would love to see GNOG reach more people so If you ever do consider making an APK version for the Oculus Quest we would love to have you with us, Our aim is to help host and distribute games as easily as possible for any developer, If you want to sell your game you can even link the listing you set up on SideQuest directly to Itch.io for easy purchase set up. Listing on SideQuest is also completely free. If you're interested at all there's more information on how you would can submit an application or game to SideQuest here: https://github.com/the-expanse/SideQuest/wiki/How-To-Submit-Games and for an example of a listing currently on us using Itch integration you can see here: https://sidequestvr.com/#/app/358

In any case best wishes and we hope for the brightest of futures for you.

hey thanks for your interest but unfortunately we do not have plans to support this. Thanks for checkin in!

Not at all, It is unfortunate but understandable as moving a game to a new format is not as easy as it sounds. I do wish you the best of luck in any future games be they in VR in or not.

Any chance you're looking to let loose a sideloadable APK for the Quest?

Hmm unlikely to be honest, sorry!

Hello, I just buy the game but I don't see my steam key in my download page, and the page of the game says that it comes with a steam key.

Hi there! Just checked and the keys are properly set up in our backend so not sure what's going on. If you're still having trouble you can email contact AT ko-opmode.com and we'll set you up with a key.

So this is a screnshot of my download page, the button that says "get steam key" don't appear at all.

The music in this game is so nice, bouncy, and crisp! It's like listening to Dolby Digital Surrond-Sound in a Theater!


Are you guys planning a Linux version? Please please please? :3

I think we'd like to but we haven't had a machine to test on yet. We'll be looking into it after all the patching is done!

Beautiful! You know we penguins are always happy to test and report bugs :)

Any update on the Linux plans at all?

What an amazing little, trippy game.  The music, visuals, and artwork are generally outstanding.  If you're looking for something deep, this isn't it, but it's a lovely way to pass the time.
