EDIT - 10/31 - Kickstarter!!!

Our publisher, Second Dimension, has launched a kickstarter for Family Picross! Feel free to pledge anything you want if you'd like to play the game  

https://www.kickstarter.com/proje...

EDIT - 8/23 - Game completed!

Great news! The game is now complete  
The game now features an actual soundtrack, a few more features and 128 puzzles to challenge your brain!!!

The game will be released on www.second-dimension.com... - I will update this thread once more when you will be able to buy the game off dr600n's site.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

So I've been on a vacay these last few days, and I like doing little chill NES projects during that time.
This time, I've been doing a puzzle game that I really like: Picross!



I've got a playable demo working with 8 puzzles in, but fear not - the final version should have over 100 of these bad boys  
Also, the game has placeholder music for now (An NES rendition of Lower Brinstar from Super Metroid I did when I was bored), so I would really like to have a musician hit me up with some tunes for the game  

Let me know about any comments, issues and all that stuff! Demo ROM included in this post.

EDIT: DL link here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rtcomr...
Wanted to correct the original attached file that had a bug but broke the attachement somehow...

So I feel stupid but I didn't know what picross was until I checked out your demo. Pretty rad. Thanks!

Good luck! Definitely planning to support this, and great to see Second Dimension publishing full NES releases at such a reasonable price.
