Really great puzzle game. My favorite aspect about this game is that quite often there is no one solution. Sometimes you can even make easier solutions than the intended one(like only needed two photographs instead of three)
My only real complain is the tutorials levels, because even though the descriptions tells us there is more to this game than simple box moving, the tutorial doesn't convey that and makes the first few minutes really really boring. I feel like you should have started the tutorial with the actual hook of the game instead of regular box moving puzzles.

really like the camera's slight hop.

Very cute and challenging! A new favourite!

This is a very sweet and inventive little puzzle game that reimagines standard "boxy boy" mechanics with a fascinating twist.

Games in which the objective of every level is to push boxes into switches are nothing new, obviously, but there was never one quite like this. I really like the concept presented here, in which you can take a picture of any 3x3 part of a level (with some exceptions, of course) and paste it back into the level to change its structure. The things the game makes us do with this mechanic are pretty varied as well. Sometimes, you'll use a picture to make a bridge, sometimes you'll use one to clone a box, and sometimes you may even need to open up some space to shove the box from the right direction. My favorites are the times when you need to take a picture of a colored gate switch to make it accessible to existing boxes, those gave me quite a satisfying "eureka!" feeling.

So yeah, overall, the mechanics are pretty simple, yet quite fascinating and unique. Great work overall. There is also a story, told entirely through plain text, but I really didn't pay much attention to it. From what I gather, it seems to be an internal monologue of a sentient camera describing their relationship with a (presumably human) master.

I like it, Really creative!
