A Little To The Left is a cozy puzzle game that has you sort, stack, and organize things into just the right spot. Discover curious logical arrangements of a person at home with their mischievous cat in this playful and intuitive puzzler with 40+ satisfying messes to tidy.


Annie and Lukas have always loved making things together: elaborate dinners, halloween costumes, treasure hunts, gardens, and their own home. But when they made their first game at the 2020 GMTK game jam, it ignited a new spark. In 2021 they formed MAX INFERNO (a nickname they had given to the corner they’d meet to walk to school together, over 15 years ago). Now they have a platform for all of the odd and lovely ideas for interactions they want to see in the gaming world.

  • Intuitive drag and drop controls

  • Atmospheric sound design

  • Shown during Wholesome Direct, A Little to the Left finds the utter delight of precise organisation, whether it's straightening a hanging frame, collecting notes into a neat pile, or arranging books on a shelf into a pleasing aesthetic order. A lovely little puzzle game that flew by during the show, but I think is worth highlighting.
