Vignettes is a neat little puzzle experience where you rotate objects around and poke at them in order to find more objects, mainly by mimicking the shape of other things with them. Ultimately, the goal of the game is to find all objects and it doesn't wear out its welcome. I had a ton of fun going through the whole thing and I would recommend it wholeheartedly. 

The core concept of the game, like I said, is to rotate objects. You'll take a rectangular box, move it on one side and it'll turn into a telephone. The telephone has a rounded top, so if you rotate it that way, you might get a bowl, which will turn into a jewelry case. All of these objects have some degree of interaction - you can click on the phone buttons or open the case - and you have to use these interactions in order to figure out more items. There is a sort of graph of everything you've discovered and you use it to find more items to get. I kinda wish you could use the map in order to start at any object you have discovered, as it is you can start from a select number of objects, but it's not enough sometimes.

The various interactions and objects are really cute and going through the whole game was a delight. Some interactions are deeper than others - like the map which you need to navigate - and require a bit more thinking to progress. I don't have much more to say about Vignettes since it's so good and simple, you should definitely try it!
