This is Halloween with Pictopix! (New puzzles and more...)

Hello everyone!

Here’s a small update a bit special…

For Halloween I've prepared a little surprise. It’s easy to take advantage of it – just go into the Workshop and play a puzzle in the Halloween theme. Don’t hesitate to use the search engine to find them quickly!

Once you’ve finished a puzzle… well… I'll leave you to find out what happens!

I've also created a few puzzles on this theme in the Workshop to mark the occasion. You’ll find others created by the players as well – I hope you'll like them!

The Halloween event will end on Monday November 6th. Halloween puzzles will remain in the game of course.

There are several improvements and corrections in this update as well. You’ll find them in the changelog (version 1.1.19).

Have fun!

Pictopix hits 1,000 puzzles in Steam Workshop!

Hi everyone!

I’m really pleased to tell you that the number of puzzles created by the Pictopix community has now gone past the 1,000 mark! This target was reached on August 15th by Paduk. Blü has created a puzzle to commemorate the event. Thank you both and my thanks to all of you who contribute to the Workshop regularly: Misora, Rena, Korb3n, Ishtar, Cakoka, [CN]sunyatsen6, Hennihenner, Kethlak, Nupfi, Klaus Otto... There are certainly many more I have forgotten!

One thousand, that's a lot of puzzles. New players could be a bit lost. Don't hesitate to use the different sort options to play your favorite puzzles!

About the 3 crown note system
I would like to take the opportunity of this announcement to sound out your ideas on the 3 crown note system. Do you find this is fair or would you prefer that the third crown didn't depend on the number of errors?

Here are some changes I could make:
- 1 crown : finishing a puzzle in Novice mode (The hints Highlight and Fade Numbers activated.)
- 2 crowns : finishing a puzzle in Intermediate mode (The hint Fade Numbers activated.)
- 3 crowns : finishing a puzzle in Expert Mode (No hints activated)
I could add one or more Achievements to players who finish the bigger puzzles with practically no errors.

Let me know what you think!

As usual an update comes with this announcement (version 1.1.17 - Changelog). The game has been improved yet again and some translations have been corrected.

Your remarks and suggestions are always welcome. Thanks again and good gaming!!!

“If like me you’ve been craving a good implementation of the puzzle for PC, then you’ve found it in Pictopix. If you’re looking for a fun, brain-using puzzle presented splendidly, then now is the time to discover why Picross/Nonograms are quite so great.”

“Pictopix could be the ultimate version of the Picross games. Great!”
9.1/10 – Testiversum

“Pictopix is an excellent version of Picross which respects the rules of this type of game.”
8/10 – Kiss my Geek
