About This Game

Please, Touch The Artwork bundles a set of calm, compelling puzzle games and interactive stories based on famous real abstract paintings. What would happen if we did touch the artwork (in museums)? The game has color-puzzles, narrative-puzzle-adventures, poetic mazes, interesting quotes and fun art facts.



There are 3 games each based on a different existing painting, each with unique gameplay.

In the first game called 'The Style' you'll experience the origin story of pure abstract art. You’ll have to add colors and lines to the canvas to reproduce the painting on the left.



The second game tells the story of Boogie & Woogie, two squares who just want to be together, but a rapidly growing world is making this harder and harder. You’ll have to help Woogie reach Boogie by figuring out how the obstacles influence Woogie’s path.



In the third game you’ll move to the big city, only to be overwhelmed with mixed emotions.
From joy and excitement to being homesick and missing your friends and family.
Will you be able to find your way out of the maze that is New York City?




You visit the exhibition of T. Waterzooi, an avant-garde digital artist and a contemporary of Piet Mondrian (Cofounder of art-movement The Style, 1917). While Mondrian was advocating pure abstraction, Waterzooi accidentally discovered an interactive world behind Mondrian’s canvases. However, people thought his work was too progressive, and Waterzooi was never accepted in the art community. Now, 200 years later, he finally is.

The title is a reference to the placards in museums telling you not to touch the art.
In this game you finally can!
