Overview

Tint is a puzzle game you solve by painting. You mix watercolours to match the colour of the origami. The aesthetic and the low-pressure puzzles make for a soothing experience. There are no timers, no countdowns, no points and certainly no rush, whenever you feel like a break.

Each level can often be solved in multiple ways, feel free to try a stroke of genius. More levels and challenges will continuously be added at no extra cost. Enable notifications and we will let you know when more are available.

It's great for non-gamers, immensely simple controls, and a concept you’ll grasp immediately. "It’s also just plain lovely", said Susan Arendt, "a Sunday afternoon with a cup of tea kind of experience."
