Unique Puzzle Game ‘Illustrated’ Hits Apple Arcade

Available now to Apple Arcade subscribers on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, Illustrated is a unique puzzle game that immerses you in beautiful illustrations.


Each puzzle begins with an illustration represented as an early concept sketch, paired with the concealed words of the artist’s story behind their work of art.

Your objective is to solve the puzzle, strategically using both sides – illustration and story.

With every correctly-placed piece, the illustration comes alive with colour while the words of the story are slowly revealed. Upon completion, the full-colour masterpiece and story are revealed together in unity.

Illustrated offers over 5 hours of custom-composed music and beautiful sound effects that provide an even deeper dimension to gameplay.
