Puzzle Game


Just felt like making a quick blog post about something I’ve been working on for a while. I’ve been tinkering at it for months now, actually. Haven’t mentioned it here yet because I don’t know where it’s going graphically, yet. It’s all still very abstract and mechanicy. (that screenshot above is using my placeholder tiles)

Anyway, this game is a PUZZLE GAME. I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t made more puzzle games – I love puzzle games (I’ve finished all the DRODs!), and I love designing puzzles, but for whatever reason I don’t seem to have made many of them. Well, time to put that right.

I’ll have more to say about this in a while. Just wanted to say something out loud about it, for my own motivation. I’m really excited about it! It’s a nasty labyrinth of weird edge cases and unexpected behaviour and it’s hella fun to just mess with. It’s probably a good sign that I’m spending more time playing this thing than actually working on it.

    Even though the screenshot itself doesn’t say that much, sounds interesting. Would be cool to try it at some point 😛

    I love puzzle games as well, I play the heck outta them.
    Will it be like a maze puzzle with a bunch of hazards and things?

    Have you tried Tower Of The Sorcerer? It is Tendry Tales’ (DROD RPG’s) biggest inspiration.

    I personally have been tinkering with something along the lines of a multiple layer Drod-rpg, as in you have a few class/races, and all the resources available are the same, but goals and usage of the resources are restricted.

    Yeah, I love both games. 🙂 (There’s no relation here, though)
