Inspired by Aleph, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, Alephant is a wordless game about language.
I've always been in awe with language, it is amazing how a very limited set of (really simple) symbols is the pillar of most human knowledge and communication. There is this beautiful power in creating meaning to symbols, whatever that is. I want players to own a new symbol, to have a new image that whenever they see it creates a memory and desire to look closer, to dig deeper. A reason to enliven curiosity.
- Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and it is generally silent. However, it can be combined with the niqqud (vowels) to make a sound.
- A super satisfying, Sokoban-like puzzler: Alephant takes a very simple set of rules and explores their consequences to the limit, almost mathematically.
- Dreamlike, ambient music combines with building block sounds of language.
- About 4-6 hours of play to reach the credits and with hours of optional puzzles.
