A puzzle game, telling the story of a little girls struggle to restore a broken sky. Play through a diverse adventure, where the rules change in every level, or test your skills in the time attack mode, trying for the best score. Enjoy a wonderful aesthetical experience, and get lost in the world of But to Paint a Universe.

But to Paint a Universe is a puzzle game with unique gameplay elements, trying to something different than the standard Bejeweled or match-3 type of play. It also features an interesting narrative and an intoxicating atmosphere, with beautiful levels, and a custom, piano-based soundtrack. This creates a charming and unique atmosphere, which combined with the varied and fun gameplay forms a casual, yet challenging game. The game contains an Adventure Mode, which takes you through 20 levels, each one different from the previous one, with a unique challenge, tied together by a narrative told through the environment.

- An adventure mode with 20 uniquely different levels
- Gorgeous imagery and a professional soundtrack
- Immersive gameworld, and challenging gameplay
- A storybook narrative, engaging the player to the game

"There seems to be a movement in the indie scene towards these very peaceful, gentle, Zen-like puzzle games. It’s like developers are deconstructing what a game is, reinventing what has traditionally been a very challenge-driven, competitive, high-pressure medium. Within that context, But to Paint a Universe succeeds admirably, and casual gamers could certainly do worse than pick it up." - Indiegamereviewer

"Gorgeous backgrounds. Soundtrack is very relaxing. Unique style of puzzle gameplay. - Gamezebo

"One thing is certain: we are not facing the usual more or less successful clone of Puzzle Quest, and congratulations in being able to find something new in this area are totally deserved." - Theindieshelter

If a game cant get votes due to its quality but rather because of a facebook group, then it shouldn't hit mainstream. Release it on your own website and build a fan base and prove greenlight wrong. Lost my vote because of that stupid group!
