Overview

Pixross is a picross/nonogram game released on Steam and Itch.io in 2020 by asset creator and game developer Kenney.

It features multiple thematic puzzle sets and many different cosmetic options for the background and grids, many of which need to be unlocked by spending currency earned through completing puzzles. Players can also opt to make the game more challenging by adding modifiers like the inability to mark empty squares or reduce the number of mistakes they can make to just one.

The game also has some unusual rules, such as penalizing players for incorrectly marking squares (to indicate they're empty) in addition to the usual penalties for incorrectly filling ones (to indicate they're part of the image).
