Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Feng Shui Master

by Hammers - Compo Entry

You are a Feng Shui Master. You must fit all the items in the room, but only you can get them in the perfect positions.

Drag furniture to move it.
Click on furniture to rotate it.
Click on empty spaces in the room to toggle notes for yourself.

Use the clues you're given to place the furniture in the correct place. Numbers in a column or row indicate groups of connected tiles that contain furniture. Two or more numbers in a row/column mean there are more than one group of connected tiles with at least one space of gap in between.

Make good use of the notes feature (click on empty tiles) to plan out your room before you start moving furniture in!

If you know how to pay picross then you know how to play this :)


Overall I'm super pleased with how this turned out. This is by far my most complete Ludum Dare to date. The puzzles are probably a bit on the easy side, especially for anyone who has don picross before, and there aren't that many of them, but it is a complete package and is a lot more polished than my previous efforts.

So yeah I hope you enjoy!

That was a fun slant on picross. I'd play more levels of this. The polish and little touches are nice. The core game definitely feels fairly complete. Right click to drop an X might be nice.

Level 5 and 6 seemed fairly easy compared to the previous levels. 4 and 8 seemed much harder.

As a non-picross player that was pretty challenging. I still really enjoyed the variation on the genre though.

I'm a fan of Picross games (and Colour Cross, and Picross 3D, and...), so I was naturally attracted to your game and I have to say I'm not disapointed at all. Awesome take on the theme, I'd love to see this turned into a full game!

Quite challenging, but nice little game :)
