Stephen's Sausage Roll For Mac

/ Comments off

Stephen's Sausage Roll has a single rule set that seems insanely simple at the beginning, and it goes to absolutely crazy places. It's astounding how thoroughly the concept was explored and how interesting some of the later applications of the rules are. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain, rinse in cold water and set aside. In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, pickle relish, salt and pepper. Add the macaroni, summer sausage, cheese, peas and celery; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.

Gameplay[edit]

The title refers to the game's objective of physically moving sausages. In a series of Sokoban-style puzzles,[1][2] the player controls a character who pushes sausage links to grilling locations on a grid. The objective is to grill each sausage in four places (two spots on each 'side' of the sausage), but if the sausage is grilled twice in the same spot, or if the sausage falls over the edge of the level, the player fails and must rewind their progress. The player-character is a low-detail figure who holds a fork, which occupies a second space on the grid. The character can move in cardinal directions and many puzzles involve rotating the fork about the player.[3]

To reach the puzzles, the player navigates an overworld on an island and aligns the character and fork with a ghost image of the character, and the surrounding land drops into the ocean to reveal the puzzle.[3]
