MythicOwl increases volume of content in Hexologic with free update

Players wanted more of just about everything, and now they'll get it.

MythicOwl announced yesterday that it will make available additional content for its recent puzzle release, Hexologic. The update is free and is available now on Steam, iOS and Android, with a Nintendo Switch update to follow soon.

Hexologic is a hex-based puzzler, for those who like tile-based logic games such as Sudoku and Picross. The developers made things visually attractive and relaxing, which is supported by ambient music so you don't start stressing too much when a puzzle has you stumped.



The game has been available for a few months, and it sounds like that was plenty of time to sort through consumer feedback and find the most common complaint: "the game is too short!"

The added content includes 36 new levels, 2 new biomes and a variety of gameplay tweaks, as noted below:
  • New types of hexes with different abilities

  • New difficulty setting (limited assists, shuffled hexes)

  • Soundtrack extended with new, relaxing music

  • Improved in-game navigation (PC & Nintendo Switch)

  • Improved overall stability and bug fixes
It's nice to see the developer taking its title seriously, in an era where some indie developers have adopted a "ship and forget" mentality. Hexologic is available today and, while I haven't played it yet myself, I do have it in my library and haven't ruled out spending some time with it down the line. Now I just get to benefit from the oodles of new content once I do!
