2 new game modes!



Hello everyone,

I hope you're all well and that you don't keep on dreaming about small squares… I've been working on a new update – I hope you'll like it. No new puzzles this time but I've added some new game modes: an Endless mode and a Challenges mode!

I'll tell you about them. :ishappy:


Endless mode

In this game mode the grids are generated at random! Choose the size of the grids you want to have and define other parameters. If you prefer square grids of which the size is a multiple of 5, it's possible! You can therefore customize your puzzle as you wish. An abstract image will be shown at the end of each puzzle – with different colors.


The interface of Endless mode

If you want to practice or just do a quick puzzle in Pictopix, Endless mode is a good addition to the puzzles created by the players in the Workshop!


A random generated puzzle


Challenges mode

If what you like is solving puzzles as quickly as possible, Challenges mode is made for you! Different challenges are presented, notably against the clock. Solve a series of four 5x5 puzzles as quickly as possible. Your time will be saved in a leaderboard. Not only can you compare your times with other players but also watch their game! The challenges are renewed every half hour and the leaderboards are stocked for 24 hours.


The Challenges mode interface

As of now there are 4 Time Trials challenges. I may add other kinds of challenges later!


Watch players' games!


New achievements

To mark the occasion, 4 new achievements have been added and 2 have been modified. The 4 new achievements are linked to the Challenges mode. To unlock them, do the challenges in the time allowed.

The other two are "5 ■ 5" and "10 ■ 10". These were originally created when playing puzzles in Shuffle mode (in Classic mode). They are now linked to Endless mode because they are more appropriate to randomly generated puzzles.




Translations

I would like once again to thank the players who translate the game. If you can play Pictopix in your own language, it's thanks to them. Excuse me if some parts of the game have not yet been translated. The players do the translations in their own free time so we must give them time to complete them.

Don't hesitate to thank them personally! Their names are in the game credits.

As always, you'll find the modifications in the changelog (version 1.3.0)

Have fun and see you soon! :isveryhappy:

April 1

April Fools' Day!



Hello everybody,

For this rather special day I wanted to build a rather special update for you!

On the face of it the update will look quite inoffensive but maybe when you play a puzzle I've added to the Workshop (theme "Machine" from Tomlab Games) something will happen! Some things might have changed in the game!



To give you a clue, this update involved quite a lot of texts... A big part of them have been translated in some languages, so I would like to thank the translators who have joined in. The task was not easy :ishappy:

With this event, a new achievement will be unlocked and a permanent option will be added to the game options (in the "Gameplay" Tab).

I hope you'll like this little surprise!

As usual some small corrections have been made. You'll find them here (version 1.2.4)



I'll take the opportunity to say that in version 1.2.3 which came out two weeks ago the game's ergonomics were improved. The Options window has been totally redesigned to be more user friendly. Above all, it is now possible to reconfigure the keys on the keyboard, the mouse and even the controller! In the same way, the keyboard shortcuts in the editor can also be modified.

Have fun and see you soon! :isheart:

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
