Launching later this month on Nintendo Switch is Depixtion, a Picross-like puzzler full of colour and creativity.

Just like Picross, you'll be completing a series of nonogram puzzles which will slowly but surely take the shape of a variety of images when finished. Depixtion mixes things up a little by adding a "never before seen colour mixing mechanic, generating the largest colour palette in a nonogram game to date".

Essentially, instead of beating a single monochrome puzzle, you'll need to complete three separate coloured puzzles. When finished, the three will blend together to create the final image. The developer says that this gives the player "a higher degree of artistic input on the final image, alongside a higher verticality of challenge from the puzzle itself".

- 96 Depixtion Images – 288 Picross Puzzles
- Sizes range from 4×4, 8×8, 12×12, 16×16, 20×20, and 24×24
- Largest colour palette in a Picross game to date (27 different colours!)
- Hand-crafted puzzles, truly solvable with logic
- Beginners & Advanced Tutorial. Easy to learn, hard to master!
- Autosaving. Don’t worry about any losing any progress

The game is set to launch on Switch on 28th February and will be available for $7.99.
