Free Christmas puzzles!



Happy Holidays everybody!

I hope you are enjoying some time off with family and relaxing with good games! To celebrate Christmas, I have a gift for you! Some new puzzles and a small update :ishappy:


Christmas puzzles

I've added puzzles of various sizes based on Christmas theme in Pictopix. Go in the Workshop, you will see the new puzzles. Do not hesitate to sort the puzzles by "Christmas" theme if you missed those of the past year!



A little surprise is waiting you when you complete a puzzle on Christmas theme!


Workshop notifications

When you run the game, a notification will now appear on some buttons if new puzzles have been added in the Workshop. The notification will display the number of puzzles created since your last visit.



Besides this new feature, I made some minor tweaks and fixes in the new update (version 1.3.6)


Winter Solstice

Today is winter solstice! If you have (almost) finished the classic mode, perhaps you should take a look at puzzles :ishappy:


Two years old

On 5 January 2019, Pictopix will be 2 years old! Once again, I'd like to thank all of the people who play Pictopix! Thanks for helping me improve the game and translate it in different languages. Thanks for creating hundreds of puzzles in the Workshop. Thank you also for your positive reviews and feedback! :isheart:

It's amazing to see players spending hundreds of hours on Pictopix so it makes me very happy! I hope you will continue enjoying Pictopix :isveryhappy:


Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :isstar:

Halloween Update!



Hello everybody,

To celebrate Halloween, I'm really pleased to announce a new update for Pictopix!


Halloween

Like last year, there is a special event hidden in the game! To discover what it is, here's a little hint: go into the Workshop and play a puzzle in the Halloween theme :ishappy:

Feel free to use the search engine to find puzzles quickly!



Henceforth, this event will be active every year over the same period.

I've also created a new puzzle in the Workshop. I hope you'll enjoy it!


Preview filling

In the new update, Pictopix introduces a new feature named "Preview filling". When this one is enabled, now you can preview the squares that you are filling. Hold the button and move the cursor to highlight squares. Then release the button to fill the squares!

A counter is also displayed next to the cursor. It shows the number of squares highlighted. It can be helpful to count them.



This feature works with the mouse, the keyboard or the controller! You can enable "Preview filling" in the game options (Gameplay tab)

Some players were asking me regularly this feature. I was reticent at first because I thought the feature will give an advantage to players in Challenges mode, but it does not. :ishappy:


Interface improvement

In the previous update (version 1.3.4), I added the "Thick line" option in the Interface tab. When you check it, the five-block indicator lines are thicker (thanks constantcompile for the suggestion!)



I also updated some skins and added two new ones ("Classic Dark" and "Amethyst") :




Translation

Once again, I would like to thank the players who help me translate Pictopix in their own language. Sometimes they are not always available so there may be some missing translation. In such cases, feel free to let me know!


As usual, you will find the full changelog here (version 1.3.5).

Have fun and see you soon! :isveryhappy:

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.”
Recommended – 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.”
8/10 – Kiss my Geek
