New Free DLC: Mosaics!

Hello everybody,

I'm very excited to announce that a new free update is available for Pictopix! This update adds new content and foremost a new game mode: the Mosaics Mode! :isstar:


Mosaics Mode

In this new game mode, you'll have to reveal three large pictures! They are composed of grids of puzzles. Solve the puzzles one after the other for unveiling small parts of the picture. When all of the tiles are completed, the entire image will appear in color!

You can play the puzzles in any order you like or, if you prefer, click on the Shuffle button (upper right corner of the screen) to pick a random puzzle!

As you can see in game, the size of the puzzles vary from one mosaic to another. In the first mosaic, the puzzles are 10 x 10. In the second one, 15 x 15. And 20 x 20 in the last mosaic!

There are more than a hundred of puzzles to solve! Completing the three large mosaics should take several hours. :ishappy:

New Achievements

I also added four new achievements in relation to the Mosaics Mode. The most skilled players among you will probably want to earn all the awards in this mode! :isveryhappy:

I hope you will have fun with the Mosaics Mode! Do not hesitate to give feedback :ishappy:

As usual, you can read the full changelog here (version 1.4.0). I made some minor fixes and improvements in the game.

Once again, I would like to thank the players who help me translate the game. :isheart:

To celebrate the arrival of the Mosaics DLC, Pictopix is on sale for several days! Feel free to share the news with your friends!


Have fun and see you soon!

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:

“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
