What happens when you DO touch the artwork? 

Part Zen-puzzle, part narrative-adventure, you'll explore the secret world behind iconic abstract paintings through over 160 puzzles. An aesthetic journey to the origins of modern art, set to a soothing jazzy soundtrack.

Supported Languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Russian. (coming soon : Turkish, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (traditional & simplified), Arabic)


3 unique full games, each based on a different iconic painting.

  • The first game tells the origin story of pure abstract art. It’s a challenging puzzle where you’ll add colors and lines to a canvas to recreate paintings.
  • The second game is about Boogie & Woogie, two squares who just want to be together, but a rapidly growing world is making this harder and harder. Help Woogie reach Boogie by figuring out how the obstacles influence Woogie’s path.
  • In the third game you’ll move to the big city, only to be overwhelmed with mixed emotions. From joy and excitement to feeling homesick and missing your friends and family. You'll be maneuvering through the craziness of the Big Apple while collecting letters to form a poem.

Just finished this! I enjoyed my time with it.

I especially loved how the finished puzzles were placed in the context of a gallery, though I wished the text that had accompanied the puzzles was included somehow, or else meta commentary about the stories. I was saddened to find that only the Mondrian exhibit had that, I would have loved to know the inspiration/thought process behind the other two.

The opening dialogue was extremely charming (a non-judgemental response to asking what a museum is!), and none of the mechanics overstayed their welcome.

Thank you so much!

You're absolutely right, I am thinking of adding the Boogie Woogie story and NYC poem to the gallery-menu so you can easily read them as a whole. 

Yes indeed, I don't want to judge anyone for not knowing something, the whole point of the game is to learn something while having fun :)

Thanks for the nice review!
