    Quite a tricky puzzle type…it took some time for the concept to sink in. While solving, this one seemed reminded me a lot of heyawake.

      If you’ve ever done Hitori, that was the direct inspiration. Or rather, my attempt to eliminate the heavy observational requirement that mars what I thought was a potentially elegant type.

      Oddly enough, Out of Sight / Heyawake was originally going to be in the Hybrid section — the rules were just that both sets of constraints were on the grid and you needed to simultaneously satisfy both. It got cut though.

        Oh yes. Hitori more than heyawake actually. In all these puzzles the white cells need to remain connected – the similarity is pretty clear.
