About This Game

A quick note from solo-developer Thomas:
You don't get what this game is about? That's completely normal!


Part of the fun in this game is finding out what the rules of the puzzle are. But there are always hints to help you progress! In essence it's just a calm casual puzzle game where you play with art without shame or punishment.

Please, Touch The Artwork is a cozy puzzler with story that takes you on a colorful journey while discovering the secret stories behind some of the world's most famous paintings. It answers the question: What if you DID touch the artwork?



There are 160 paintings to touch (2~3 hours of gameplay) spread over 3 unique games,
The 1st game tells the origin story of pure abstract art. It’s a challenging puzzle where you’ll add colors and lines to a canvas to recreate abstract paintings.



In the 2nd game you’ll move to a big city, only to be overwhelmed with mixed emotions. You'll be exploring the maze of New York City while collecting words from a poem.



In the 3rd game you’ll help Boogie & Woogie, 2 squares who just want to be together, by figuring out how obstacles influence Woogie’s path, in a complex growing society.
