~Made for GBJAM 8~

Help Bea investigate mysterious ruins and help her new alien friends by solving picross puzzles! Featuring over 12 recruitable aliens, each with their own helpful ability.

CONTROLS:
Control pad: WASD or arrow keys
A: Z or M
B: X or N
Start: Enter or space bar

TIPS & TRICKS:

  • Never played picross before? Confused by the rules? Stuck on a puzzle? Read up on the game here!
  • You can hold the button down to mark several squares in one fell swoop.
  • Once you've recruited a few aliens past the first three, you can customize your team by pressing the space bar on the map screen!
  • There is currently no direct way to exit out of a puzzle you didn't mean to start, though you can fail it on purpose with no penalty.
  • Abilities that reveal lines and columns "stack", which means using three characters who reveal one random line will always reveal three random lines, and so on.
  • According to my uncle who works at GBJam, look under the truck to find a super powerful secret monster!!!

Can You make a GB or GBA build? I would love that

Sadly not! It was made in Unity which doesn't support the GB format.

Makes sense. Very sad

Amazing game! I would buy a longer version if you made it.

We're actually working on one so you're in luck! Watch this space!

Amazing art, music, and gameplay. One thing I might say though, is that an ingame picross tutorial would've been nice.

That's in the cards for after the jam rating period is over!
