DEVELOPED by Thomas Waterzooi
“I made this game because I wanted to explore my complex relationship with modern art. What should I feel? Can my little sister do this? I’m still not 100% sure, but I do know that modern art has had an impact on everything and everyone in the world today. And so I hope my game can have an impact on your life as well” - Thomas Waterzooi, designer & developer.

“When you’re inspired by art, beautiful and new things can happen. Please, Touch The Artwork was inspired by Mondrian, and we hope it will inspire players to develop their own thoughts about colors, shapes... and creation in general.” - Mikaël Bourget, founder of the publishing label
