Half Way Through the Campaign
Jigster Evolves!

When we first launched this Kickstarter we believe we had a complete product, minus the perfect music, however we have received tons of feedback from fans and other interested parties. Seeing this influx of information we got to work adding and refining more gameplay. Jigster was initially planned to have 4 ways to puzzle, now it sports over 11,500 ways to bust jigs. This vastly expanded the number of ways to play, granting players the ability to craft their own puzzling style.

We have moved the timer options into their own section allowing users to play any game mode with or without the challenge of a ticking clock. Additionally, if a game mode is not testing your skills, there are multiple Difficulty Modifiers that can be toggled on or off. One of our favorites is Flashlight mode, were the player can only see the pieces within the limited sight of their flashlight.

Venturing into the world of Desktop has lead to some interesting game evolutions.

Jigster Will Ship

We are so confident in the fact that Jigster will ship on time, anyone pledging the minimum of $5 will receive a copy of the game regardless of this Kickstarter Campaign's outcome.

Jigster's Collection of Puzzles and Musical Options Continue to Expand

We have had several Artist and a few Composers reach out to us about including their work within Jigster. We are very excited to be in talks to feature their work.

One artist in particular has helped us to expand outside of photos and into the world of digital art, Malwina Kwiatkowska.

  • Classic - Want to enjoy some amazing puzzling fun, the same way it has been done for centuries, than you have found home.
  • Double Trouble - With 2 Jigs inter-mixed, the race to bust both puzzles is more intense. Bonus for completing both with the same move
  • Speed Runner - Can you bust 5 Jigs in the allotted time? It will take a quick mind and faster reflexes to bust them all before the clock drops to zero.
  • Weather - Battle the elements as you bust some jigs. Lucky Jigster is along to help.


    Difficulty Mods Pull You to the Extreme!
    Select none or every Difficulty Mod to ramp the challenge up to crazy levels! Each Mod increases the point value for busting Jigs, but be careful while combined a few make even small jigs worth large sums they are anything but easy.
  • Rotate - Squares have all sides looking like up. Allows the pieces to be rotated.
  • Checkered - Cover half the puzzle? Sounds easy, but can you use your mind to connect the hidden tiles?
  • Flashlight - The darkness adds a new level, as you can only see pieces revealed by the light on your cursor.
  • Blink - Pieces randomly flip over and some even return right-side-up, can you still bust the jig with special shapes to guide you?
  • Perspective - Pieces randomly rotate, can you still bust that jig with all of the pieces turned in the wrong direction?
  • Scattered - Dump that Jig's tiles on the table and get to work. Game starts with pieces scattered across the tabletop.


  • Carefree - Relax and enjoy solving some beautiful puzzles without the need to watch the clock
  • Timed - Curious to see how long it took to bust that jig, this is the perfect mode for you
  • Time Limited - Ready to challenge your puzzle solving, and quick clicking skills?

  • Jigster Vision - Need to see what the busted puzzle looks like, this is the perfect hint for you
  • JigFrame - Square pieces can make things hard, use this hint to place a frame around the edge pieces to good handle on the puzzle, especially the large piece count ones.

@Veskaida No Problem. Not trying to hide anything. If you have feedback please hit us up, even if it not something we want to hear, we need to hear it.
Veskaida Mar 4 @ 12:22pm 
Okay! Thank you for the clarification!

@Veskaida We took the first attempt down, reviewed the feedback, and after going back to the drawing board we enhanced the game. Adding more game modes, some of which were office creations like Speed Run, improving the UI design and adding more animations to screens. There was an earlier comment that asked a similar thing if you want more information.

Is this a re-upload? I'm pretty sure I've seen this exact project before on Greenlight, especially the game's icon looks very familiar, if not identical to a game that was on greenlight within the last month.

@Twitch.tv/AutynSky Thank you for taking a look at the game on your stream. Understandable if it isn't for you.
@Foamy Think the best viewer comment was "Great UI, but that doesn't sell games"
