The idea behind this project is to take some of the most iconic abstract paintings, reverse engineer them and then add some gameplay.

The project has two outputs: a game (for traditional platforms such as iOS/Android/PC/Mac/Switch) and 2 art-installations. This section only describes the game.

Part zen puzzle, part narrative adventure, you'll explore the secret world behind iconic abstract paintings through over 150 puzzles. An aesthetic journey to the origins of modern art, set to a soothing jazzy soundtrack.


Play procedurally-generated puzzles based on Mondrian paintings such as Compositions with Red Blue Yellow, Broadway Boogie Woogie, and New York City

Waltz through this collection of three different paintings — each with its own unique gameplay and puzzles

Solve more than 150 randomly generated puzzles with 2 - 3 hours of playtime and no time-pressure

Get to know the story behind abstract art pioneers

Accessible options including color-blind and larger text

Vibe to a jazzy soundtrack that provides ambience to your painting-prodding

Two art installations on the same theme from Studio Waterzooi are also on their way: Please, Touch the Artwork gives you carte blanche as the museum rope is cut and invites you to question cultural norms. Landscape Artist Without Landscape lets you create the landscape for a painter missing their vista.
