Super Cute Video Game Families

Andry “Shango” Rajoelina works as a designer in the animation industry and his series of Super Families portraits this time focuses on video game characters.

We Review: Picross e5

Picross (“Picture Crossword”) is a series of logic puzzle games (nonograms) on Nintendo’s DS family of consoles, and it can thought of as an agglomeration of paint-by-numbers, Sudoku, crosswords, and good old Numberwang. You’re presented with a grid with numbers along the top and side, and using the numbers as clues, you fill the grid in to reveal a pixel picture.
