Hi everyone. The movement problem has been fixed and I've made a few optimizations! Your character should no longer get stuck at the beginning of the game and the frame stuttering should be reduced. The new download is zipped above, V1.30.
A downloadable game
Please water the plants.
SNAPto is a challanging Sokoban-Style puzzle exploration game centered around a single snapping mechanic. Players are given a series of dense and deceptively simple puzzles with increasing difficulty. Each puzzle is unique in introducing a principle of the game's core mechanics and acts as a bridge to lead the Player to new places. The player is asked to discover the rules and history of this world, but is never certain of what is true.
The game takes roughly 2 hours to beat on average.
- 25 challenging puzzles
- 3 NPC storylines
- Two Endings
Keyboard and Xbox Controller support:
- WASD/D-Pad/Anagogue Stick - Movement
- Z/X/B-Button - Undo
- R/Y-Button - Reset puzzle
- ESC/Start - Pause

Yeah, I think the game is good but it's a bit buggy and poorly optimized. I got random freezes time to time, but I was able to almost finish it (96% and I can't play further because loading time is abysmal at the later stages).
Also I don't think player allowed to ride this thing all around the map:
It is very poorly optimised and I think that's the problem most people are experiencing (Which sucks). I'm going to try make some tweaks to improve the performance.
Please enjoy the magic carpet responsibly.
Hey, I did a little bit of optimization and I think I've fixed the movement bug, so you should still be able to move even if there is stuttering. It should take a while to load in the first instance, but if you pressed undo once and save the game by quitting, it should load much faster from then on. Hopefully the new download improves performance.
Uh Oh. I'll have a look and see if I can recover your save.
Unforunately I can't recover your save. Due to the poor way I was previously saving data, the deserializer just times out because there's to much to work through.
I've fixed how saving works now so it should work from the beginning, but if anyone is also experiencing this issue (And because the game's still a bit buggy), I've uploaded V1.31. This version has a dev command to toggle gravity, so you can skip puzzles you've already done. If anyone sends me a DM on Twitter, I can pass you the command.
Hi Everyone, there is a major problem with the game at the moment as a lot of people can only move the character once before stopping completely. I'll try to see if I can fix this during this weekend.
The trailer looks promising but I've been running into the same issue that others have mentioned - I can walk around for a bit then the character simply stops and I can't control them again, unfortunately making the game unplayable.
EDIT: As mentioned above, the issue is now fixed! Definitely recommend giving it a try, it's a nice atmospheric little puzzler with a unique mechanic at play!
Hi, I believe I've fixed this problem with the new version of the game. Just download the new version (1.24). Does this fix it?
The mechanics look fun, but unfortunately the game is unplayable for me because it just doesn't let me move the character. The furthest I can get after loading the save file from the main menu, is just a few more steps, and then I'll have to exit to the main menu and load the save file again because the character just won't do anything no matter how hard I press the arrow keys and WASD. Can anyone help?
Hi, I'll see if I can fix this over the weekend. I have no idea what's causing this and why it's effecting so many people.
Hi, I believe I've fixed this problem with a new download, 1.24 above. Are you able to move freely now?
Anybody else having trouble installing the game? I go to try and install it but I get an error that reads: "TypeError: Cannot read property 'build' of undefined". Any ideas?
Hi. You should only need to unzip the download and run the SNAPto application inside. No need to install anything.
I'm not seeing any option to download the zip. I've got it linked to my account and I'm on the itch app, and the only button I see is the "Install" button on the bottom-right (which doesn't work) and a "Buy Now" button on the main page (which presumably I don't need to use since I already "got" the game when it was free a couple days ago?)
Took one step (down) out of the tent in the beginning, but then it wouldn't let me move again.
Hi. If you try reloading the game or your save does it let you move again, or is this happening every time you leave the tent?
Yes, I tried a few times.
My only other suggestion would be to try running on the lowest settings. I don't have a diagnostics tool in the game unfortunately, so I can't check what might be causing it.
