Description


Jigsaw-style puzzle game with a challenging twist!

Animated Puzzles is a Jigsaw-style picture puzzle game with a challenging twist; animated puzzles! Try to get the right pieces into place while parts of the image is in motion. Different and extremely enjoyable!
 
The soft animated motions combined with the beautiful photos and harmonic tunes makes it perfect for whenever you want to escape reality for a while.
 
Don't let the clean structure fool you, it's more to the gameplay than meets the eye.
It's relaxing, easy to play and yet challenging at the same time.

Additional info:
This puzzle game is best described as jigsaw puzzle with square shaped puzzle pieces. The shape of the pieces makes it very easy to overview and simple to play.
All puzzles have seamlessly looping animations which gives a hole different dimension to the puzzle experience.
As you progress, the puzzles will increase in difficulty, having more pieces to put together. To make it easier to overview you can simply zoom in/out and adjust the size of the piece holder to your liking.
There's also global leaderboards to track who's completing a puzzle the fastest.

Live multiplayer (Battle mode):
Battle mode lets you challenge other players in a turn based battle. You will be given a number of randomly selected pieces that you will get to place wherever you think fit. After you've placed the pieces, you will get scores for each piece that was in the right spot. The correct pieces will stay in place as the turn goes to the other player. Whether you choose to play against friends or random opponents, this mode is truly exciting and a lot of fun!



We originally experimented with all kinds of shapes for the pieces (jigsaw-type was one of them), but in the end we decided that the square shaped pieces made the game more fluid and comfortable to play. It might look dull, but it works really great and ads to the challenge.
However, playing with other shapes makes the experience quite different. Therefor, to increase replay ability we've added support for other shapes as well. Once you've completed a puzzle with square shaped pieces you will get the option to play it with a new shape of pieces. We only got one additional shape so far but we plan to add more.



The game has already been released on several platforms. The response has been great and we really want to take this game a step further. The higher performance and larger memory of desktops and Steams community features gives us new opportunities. We also want to release the desktop version with all puzzles and themes in one package, with Steam a larger download like that would work very well. Puzzles might not be the most common game genre on steam but we're hoping there's enough people who'd appreciate a relaxing puzzle game in-between all the action.



Even though the game already exists we feel that getting greenlit and released on steam would encourage us to make some of the bigger updated that we've been planning on. We're also open for new ideas and suggestions!
Things we'd like to add:
  • More puzzle themes
  • Achievements to increase replay ability.
  • Create own puzzles: We'd like to add a puzzle editor for creating/sharing user generated animated puzzles via Steam Workshop. It's yet unclear if it would be possible.
  • Speed challenges: Challenge friends in any puzzle to see who puts it together the fastest.
  • Co-op puzzling via live multiplayer.
  • More shapes of puzzle pieces
  • Controls: In addition to mouse and touch, will also support gamepad.



Mexond is a small 2 person indie game company located on a beautiful island in Sweden. We enjoy playing games almost as much as we love creating them. We got tons of amazing ideas waiting to be fulfilled, all from casual time killers to exiting adventure games. We focus on quality and uniqueness in our games and put a lot of time and effort in each production.
We want all our games to be the best that they can be and put a lot of importance in the feedback from our players. We try hard to fulfill as much requests as possible and are constantly working on updates to make more out of our games
So far we haven't been able to start any of our long time projects, but we're hoping our current projects will take us there.



Best way to know what this game is all about, is to try it!

It's not that I don't like puzzle games....
But Jigsaw Puzzle in windows 95 could do more.

These modern jigsaw games are all so damn limited. I don't like it one bit.
