A downloadable game for Windows

About

Calm Waters is a calming puzzle game where you move a boat around a maze by creating ripples that push the boat. With soothing ambient background music and simple, relaxing game play, it's the ultimate COVID-19 stress reliever! As you progress, you are matched with new obstacles and puzzles to complete.

This game was an entry for PyWeek #29. You can view it's entry page here.
