Twisty Little Passages on Kickstarter   Leave a comment

No, not the Nick Montfort book. This is a “dungeon crawl puzzle book adventure”.

Each pair of facing pages is a puzzle, where you

Fight monsters, acquire keys to open doors, get life-boosting elixirs, powerful equipment and enchanted items, and defeat the boss at the end of each level. Use your wits to find the right path through each area and survive. Solve each puzzle to move forward with the story.

If you’re familiar with DROD RPG, this is basically the book form of that. Here’s a sample:

You keep track of attack, defense, health, and equipment for solving each puzzle. The pages of the book will be laminated so you can solve using a dry-erase marker.

The first four puzzles of the book are up, so you can test things out for yourself.

The Kickstarter runs until June 13, 2019. It’s already funded, but there are bonus puzzles to unlock and so forth, and I figured y’all seem the types to be interested, so here you go.

One of the harder puzzles that just got posted; click on the Kickstarter and look for the PDF files to get more detail.
