Soundtrack Updated

Hi there,

this is a small update for Patterna that adds two new pieces (along with fitting sounds) to the soundtrack. This may sound like a minor change, but I could not be more excited about it. Alex Cottrell, the composer of the game's soundtrack, did a stellar job! The two new pieces, "Thinkspace" and "Of Best Fit" have also been added to the free soundtrack DLC. If you want to show your appreciation for the soundtrack, go over to BandCamp to buy the soundtrack (name your own price) or leave a few words for Alex.

Best,
Sebastian

Two new level generators & variants of the existing ones

Hi there,

today's update brings two new level types for the random level generator and a new option for the random level generator. The new option 'Edge Variants' creates variants of the active graph type by making some of the edges one-way (in a structured manner). This of course works best for graph types that have no directed edges to begin with.
Here are two such variants:


The two new types of graphs for the level generator go by the names of 'Archimedean Graph' (which is a bit misleading; they are connected to Archimedean solids, but not all in the same way) and 'Special Graphs' (this is a collection of notable graphs from graph theory). These generators work best when you do not fix a size for the levels (since it will try to find a graph of the given size from the collection, and for some sizes there may only be a single graph in the collection). Here are a few impressions of the new graphs (the first two are Archimedean, the last two Special):





Best,
Sebastian

About This Game

Patterna is a logic puzzle game for people who think that HexCells is far too easy. It features a highly customizable random level generator, a level editor, more than 70 levels, and an enchanting minimalist soundtrack by Alex Cottrell.

In Patterna, each level is a network of nodes (also known as a graph). In a way similar to HexCells or Minesweeper, each node is ultimately in one of two states (known as pattern and non-pattern). Initially, most nodes' states are unknown. It is the player's task to correctly classify these unrevealed nodes using information based on distance, connectivity, and color. Correctly classifying a node may reveal more information that in turn helps you to solve the level.

  • More than 70 levels, plus a tutorial
  • Procedurally generated levels with plenty of options for the level generator
  • Enchanting minimalist original soundtrack by Alex Cottrell
  • Absolutely no guessing needed
  • Level editor and Steam Workshop support included
  • Extensive gameplay statistics
