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!!!

Workshop improved and more!

Hello everyone,

In this new update (version 1.1.16), I’ve concentrated mainly on improving the Pictopix Workshop. As you can see on the screenshot below, new sort options have been added to make it possible to sort the puzzles as you wish. If your friends play Pictopix you can now see their favorite puzzles or those which they have created.

In addition, if you follow other players on Steam you can now see their creations by clicking on “From followed authors”. In selecting “Friends’ Favorites” or “Friends’ Creations” you will also be able to sort the puzzles according to the date, the theme or the rating (for the moment this is not possible in other sort categories on the Steam API). In addition, if you follow other players on Steam you can now see their creations by clicking on "From followed authors". In selecting "Friends' Favorites" or "Friends' Creations" you will also be able to sort the puzzles according to the date, the theme or the rating (for the moment this is not possible in other sort categories on the Steam API). And a click on "Suspended" will display a list of suspended puzzles.



I’ve also added two buttons in the pop-up displaying the selected puzzle. These allow you to pass quickly from one puzzle to another without closing the pop-up window. Navigation is thus much easier. If you play using a controller or the keyboard you can use the LB and RB buttons to pass from one puzzle to another (Page Down and Page Up on the keyboard).



I know that some players complained about the length of the animation when a puzzle is solved. Following up a player’s suggestion (Thanks Sumire !) I’ve worked out a compromise solution. Now you just have to hold down the left button on the mouse to speed up the animation (a small image “Speed Up” will appear at the top of the screen). This also works with the space bar or the “A” button on the controller.



There are other modifications designed to improve playing comfort (see changelog). I hope you’ll appreciate them!

As I mentioned in other messages it is now easy to translate Pictopix into other languages. Should you wish to translate the game into your language, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me through the on-line contact form.

Once again, good gaming and see you soon!

Tom

Reviews

“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.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“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.”
