Family Picross is 100% FINISHED. This campaign is to raise funds for a full production run of physical copies!
A new puzzle game arrives for your NES!
Compatible with your NES consoles, Family Picross features more than 100 puzzles for hours of entertainment, and an easy password system to let you continue if you only have a few minutes to play.
A digital experience!
All physical tiers come with a ROM that is compatible with your favorite NES emulator and flash carts.
The Puzzler Package
This reward allows you to create your own puzzle to be added into the game. This puzzle will also be added to your personal Solutions Guide book, and your name will appear in the manual credits! The size of the puzzle can be up to 20 blocks wide by 15 blocks tall.
I apologize for the video quality - YouTube keeps compressing it.
What is Picross?
Picross is a picture crossword puzzle where you follow the clues to reveal a hidden picture. The board size ranges from a 5x5 block grid up to a 20x15 block grid, and all board sizes can range from easy to challenging.
How do you play Family Picross?
To play, you use the numbers to fill in the blocks on the grid. Each number represents how many blocks are in a group. For example, 22 would be 2 sets of 2 blocks. In a 5x5 board, the middle block would be left untouched while the 2 blocks on the left and right would be filled in.
If a row or column has a 0 in it, it means there aren't any blocks to be filled in.

Risks and challenges
As we understand people work hard for their money, we wanted to be sure we were far enough along with the project before starting this campaign. All of the items are finished - that's right, there's no waiting for artwork, programming, or anything!
Reducing risk while being able to deliver a quality product is our #1 priority.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
