Pixel 8 - 'Paint, Play, Create' out soon

Hi everyone

Rick here from the little indie dev called Playing with Giants. I thought I'd share with you all a little info on our next game that will be released in the next few weeks.

Say hello to Pixel 8!


Here is a little preview vid of the game for you to take a look at:

Pixel 8 is at its core a puzzle game. But like all great puzzle games it can be played at different skill levels depending on the player. In Pixel 8 you have a set amount of time to recreate a picture on an 8x8 canvas. Sounds simple right? Well yeah, it is really. Players of all skill levels can complete the levels (We know, we tested it on our 60 year old parents and they managed it). But the puzzle aspect comes in when a player needs to shave seconds off to gain a better time and achieve the maximum amount of Gold Pixels. You need to start planning in what order you paint the colours to maximise your time and plan the smoothest finger movements.

At release there will be 350 free levels to play as well as an image creator where you can paint your own 8x8 masterpieces and share them via Twitter or Facebook. In a future update we plan on having a pack that is all created by the players so any image you share could make it into the game at a later date. We will also be updating regularly with new themed packs as well.

Pixel 8 also nabbed 3rd place in the Big Indie Pitch at Develop 2015! Which made us really happy as we have been working away at it for a good number of months.

Thanks for your time and attention folks. Any question? Just ask away if you do

Looks interesting. At first glance I thought it was going to be another pictocross game but thankfully it's something new.

What price are you releasing it for?
