"What are Towlr?
Towlr are puzzles. Contrary to conventional design wisdom, the towlr games come without instruction and without explanation. Your job is to discover their secret, and score deliciousness. Yes, every Towlr game can be completed.
Towlr are complete audio/visual experiences. They should be played with sound at a reasonable level, and computer monitors turned on.
Towlr may frustrate you. This is normal."
