"...beautifully designed heartbreaking puzzle." -


Stay, Mum is an ordinary story about John, a young boy with an extraordinary imagination and his mother, who is busy trying to make a living for the two of them.

Stay, Mum will let you manipulate different blocks to form surreal shapes out of John’s wild imagination and explore the bittersweet relationship of John and his mother.

John means the world to his mother. But to meet their needs, his mother has to work very hard. So hard that she never finds time for him.
John’s loneliness is only cured by different blocks given to him by his mother. Why does the mother give him building blocks and what purpose do they hold?

Minimalist and gorgeous visuals accompanied by smooth ambient sounds to lure you in.

Tap and move the blocks around to form shapes based on the outline shown before each level. When satisfied, tap a button to make them fall on the platform.
But - make sure they stay in shape when they hit the floor!

Meet John’s friends as he imagines all sort of different beings in his 7 blocks, each with their own visuals and behaviour.
Use them at your aid to achieve complex shapes in more than 70 levels!

John’s mother leaves him different mysterious blocks to play with, to distract him from the fact that she has no time for him.
Learn the truth about why his mother has no time for her only son and how are the blocks going to help him.

Play on one iOS device and synchronize your progress across all your iOS devices automatically.

Story is hard to get

Everyone says that the story of this game is really good but I can tell you that it's not very easy to understand. Since there isn't any text, you can only interpret what is happening in the story. I am not saying the story is bad, it's very touchy at times, but I don't think I got all of it. But I am impressed with the presentation and the art style. The art is very cute, especially the blocks!

Very Beautiful Game.. But....

(May contain spoilers) Is the last block suppose to crash the game every time? If not, please fix the bug. It's not fun having to exit out of the game every time you "fail" a level. Especially when I paid money for the game; if it were a free game I would understand the bugs. Other wise, the art style and storyline is amazing. (:

Love love love but...

So I'm up to chapter 5, level 9, it is sooooooo hard! I've been on this game for hours being souped frustrated because it's impossible since I be done everything possible and right ow there is no way to go forward because there is no way to beat the level 😔. Please make that level a little more easier since I've been up to it for weeks now.

Stay, Mum
