We’ll be working on a review for Pictooi, so I got in touch with Jools Watsham to talk a bit about the game. Come check it out!
PS4Blog: Hi Jools! Thank you for joining us this morning. How are you doing?
Hey there! I am doing great. Thanks for having me.
PS4B: You’ve launched a new puzzle game named Pictooi on Nintendo Switch. What can you tell us about this project?
Pictooi is the unofficial love child of Picross and Brain Age, and it is available now on Nintendo Switch!
PS4B: How long did it take to develop Pictooi? What sets it apart from other Nonogram games on Nintendo’s console?
We spent about 18 months developing Pictooi. Whereas many nonogram games are focused on completing puzzles quickly, Pictooi is more about stepping into a Zen-like experience where you’re encouraged to take the time you need. And, come back tomorrow! There is a calendar that you stamp each day to keep track of your progress, which encourages a routine. After each puzzle is solved, our host, Professor Ishida, presents you with an interesting fact about the puzzle you just solved, whether it was a puzzle that formed a doughnut or an astronaut. Pictooi is all about exercising and enriching your mind.
PS4B: Are there any plans for releasing additional puzzles as DLC for Pictooi?
We do not have any plans for DLC at this time.
PS4B: How goes work on Hatch Tales?
Work on Hatch Tales is going very well.
PS4B: And that’s all the time we have for today. Is there something else you’d like to add?
Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with me. I hope you have a great day.
