Drop What You're Working On And Play This Game

Welcome to another edition of Geek-Offs, where you'll find the perfect distractions to help you muddle your way through hump day each week.

Now that it's officially summer (hello, super torturous temperatures), we figure it's time to be as low-key as possible, lest we break into a sweat. Physical exertion is the enemy this time of year so we're keeping our butts firmly seated and clicking our way to enlightenment with this week's pick, Drop.

A self-proclaimed "musical based reflection puzzle game," Drop. is like Zen ball for your brain. Simply put, the goal is to drawing a series of lines and use them as deflectors to get drops from one pipe to another. In puzzle mode, you work your way through the chromatic scale as the game progressively gets more difficult (different surfaces, leaky pipes), but if puzzle mode is too structured for you, you can spend hours making your own little ambient tune filled world in Sandbox mode.
