A downloadable game

Puzzle Depot is a box-pushing, bug-squishing puzzle/adventure which is currently in production. The full game will include a fully-featured world editor for creating and sharing your own levels.

In this introductory demo, Todd Torial, Box-Pusher Third Class with Union Freight Operations, will be your guide through the basics of Puzzle Depot's mechanics.


  • Box-pushing puzzles that bring new ideas to an old classic!
  • Multiple solutions for many puzzles!
  • Optional challenges! Can you reach the end without taking ANY damage?
  • Lovingly crafted pixel art, just like the good ol' days!
  • An amazing, ambient soundtrack!
  • An offbeat sense of humor!

So... This game is never coming out. Too bad, really could have been a nice one. 🤷‍♂️

We're obviously pretty far behind where we said we'd be at this point (2018? yikes), but, progress is still being made on the game. I have a big update in this works, including things like getting this page up to date, our Steam page set up, etc.

I know I haven't been very good posting info here, I'll try and be more proactive about that in 2020. Keep an eye out, I'll have something more official posted soon.

I'm sorry if I've let you down with delays, but I'm glad you're still interested in Puzzle Depot and I'll do my best to make it up to you.

Thanks for reaching out!

It made a great first impression, my comment from almost 4 years ago is still here. I won't say to hurry but the mechanics and controls were already really great (that's what really makes or brakes such games) and the story/content is something that always can look like needing "a little more" (polishing, details, etc) but that also means becoming stuck in limbo.

In any case, thanks for your reply, it's good to see it!

I simply loved this game, can't wait to the date release!!!

hope to see this game finished in 2018.


Hey keser-one, sorry it's been a while! We are looking at Q2 of 2018, I actually just made a quick KS update to check in: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1781334061/puzzle-depot/posts/2085854

Thanks for keeping an eye on Puzzle Depot, I know it's been a long wait. I'm confident that it will be worth it!

omg i am so proud and happy for you! you must be exhausted after this loooong road lmao.

ok i can still hold out a little bit more for it. still my day one.

Kickstarter Update #45 is up!

Sorry that I missed a couple updates! This is a good one, though...

We are pleased to announce that Shovel Knight's own master schemer, Tinker Knight, will be appearing in Puzzle Depot as a playable character, courtesy of Yacht Club Games! We're really excited for this opportunity!

And if you haven't checked out Shovel Knight yet... you really should :]

Kickstarter Update #42 is up!

The Circuit Update

This one is all about the changes that "circuit objects" have undergone, such as buttons, plates, and doors. Things are far more versatile than they used to be!

Great graphics! Looking forward to the complete game!

Esta bueno, con una historia y atmósfera interesante dentro de una mecánica de puzzles clásica.

Aunque muy corto a mi parecer.

Just wanted to say thank you everyone who has played and commented, we appreciate your support!

Also, there is a new update on our Kickstarter page, in which I go into detail about the puzzle design process. If you're into that kind of thing, check it out!


I absolutely love it. Simple concept but awesome atmosphere and variatons.

The demo was great! Surprisingly addictive and with a great art style. Can't wait to buy the full product!

How can that simple box-pushing job escalates to something serious this quickly?! Oh I love this game!

I love the look of it. Reminds me a little of CLARC, Parcel, Full Bore and Toki Tori 2+. I hope you're planning on releasing it for Linux eventually.


It looks and plays great. Looking forward for realese.

Btw. it doesn't work with itch.io app.
