This article was originally made available on Gaming on Nintendo on December 25th, 2012: While the Nintendo Entertainment System may be, commercially, long dead and done with there is still a small dedicated group of gamers that continue to work on games for it. We have seen many titles created in the years since Nintendo pulled the plug on their first home console in North America yet not many Picross games for some reason (weird considering the popularity of the game and similar ones over the recent years).
Independent coder “freem” has slowly been releasing information for Family Picross game over on the forums atNESDev.com (I saw it on Pdroms.de myself) and so far, it is shaping up to be quite a nice looking little puzzle game- clean, easy to read at a glance and based on a puzzle genre that is always interesting.
