The Workshop is launched!

Today Pictopix has a new feature: the Steam Workshop!

This feature which was part of its initial conception will allow you to publish the puzzles you have created on the Steam Workshop and what is more, you’ll be able to find other players’ creations using the inbuilt browser.

An integral part of the game since the beginning and now available to all, the Puzzle Editor allows you to create your own puzzles. It’s easy to use and has two layers. One of these is for the squares to be colored in by the player and the other is for the picture which will be revealed. The editor enables you to create puzzles of all sizes from 5x5 to 25x25, as yet. You can also import and export images in PNG format.

The Puzzle Browser allows you to explore other players’ creations using a search engine and filters so that you can choose which puzzles to play. You can also vote for your favorite puzzles and keep yourself informed about the popularity of different puzzles. I’m hoping that the Pictopix community will produce some great puzzles!

Be careful to respect the intellectual property rights and not recopy existing puzzles (from this game or from any other). I must reserve the right to delete any puzzles which don’t keep to this rule.

The game will of course continue to evolve – there are still improvements to be made. I’m all ears to your suggestions in order to propose the best possible game experience. I would like to thank all of you for all the feedback I’ve received. It isn’t always easy to satisfy everybody but I hope that most of you take pleasure in playing Pictopix.

Now it’s your turn! Let your creativity run wild!

Pictopix is out on Steam!

Hi everyone,

Pictopix is now available on Steam!

First, I'd like to thank all those who supported the game on Steam Greenlight. Thanks to you, Pictopix is now on the Steam Store. I hope you will have a lot of fun!

As from now I will keep the game up to date.

In the first phase there’ll be the integration of the Workshop. I’m working on that at the moment. This will allow players to share their creations and it will be available soon in a beta version of the game.

I know that lots of players are looking for different things in this kind of game. This experience will lead to improvements: additional content will be added and new playing modes could come along!

Happy New Year 2017 and have fun!

“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.”

“Tomlab Games is off to a great start in introducing a classic from Japan to the Sudoku lovers past its borders. Pictopix is a fun and relaxing game that anyone can play. It lets you relax while working your brain in an entertaining way. If you're the creative type but can’t draw to save your life, if you have $6 to spare, then consider buying this game. Chances are, you won't regret it.”

“Pictopix is an excellent version of Picross which respects the rules of this type of game.”
