    Zorya is a creative co-operative puzzle game where two sisters bring the night back to the world. Aysu only survives in the shadows, but Solveig can control the sunlight. Each of the 6 levels have a clever strategy where Aysu can proceed to the end. Zorya can only be played over an IPV4 connection with two computers.

    Conclusion:
    The game initially crashed every time I ran it because the Visual C 2015 installation set Windows to Windows XP. Once I realized it and set it back to Windows 7, the game ran perfectly. I was able to install it in two computers and connect the game and play. Unfortunately it is only 6 levels and the first two are fairly simple.
