Please, Touch The Artwork, the puzzle Game with an artistic touch, is now available to pre-order

From solo-developer Thomas Waterzooi comes the award winning puzzler ‘Please Touch the Artwork’ - a fresh take on the genre that scooped the top prize at Pocket Gamer’s Very Big Indie Pitch (Helsinki 2019) and won 'Best Art' at Tokyo Game Show, and which is now available to pre-order for iOS.

Have you ever felt like being mischievous and breaking the museum's rules by getting your hands dirty? Well with Please, Touch the Artwork you can do the unthinkable! Broken up into 3 full games (each of which is based on a different painting from abstract art pioneer Piet Mondrian) Please Touch the Artwork find's the player arriving at an exhibition for the famous artist, only to see the ropes that separate the art from the spectator gone and each piece at the mercy of your fingertips.

The first game has players adding colours and lines to a canvas to reproduce a famous painting, while the second tells the story of Boogie & Woogie, two squares who want to partner up. To reunite them you’ll have to guide them through an ever growing puzzle, figuring out how the obstacles influence Boogie's path. In the third game, you’ll move to the big city, where the puzzle involves you having to navigate the maze that is New York City, manoeuvring through the craziness of the Big Apple.
