Project of the Day—Wondermark’s Jigsaw Puzzles of Fictional Victorian Charts is exactly what it sounds like. Creator David Malki made these with a sort of alternate history in mind: “What if the Victorian era had more jokes AND was more diagram-based AND was made of jigsaw puzzles?? WONDER…NO MORE” he writes. We have officially stopped wondering.
Puzzles for winter days.
Puzzled about how to shrug off the darkness-induced blues this February? Check out these three great projects on Kickstarter. Perhaps you will be enlightened.*
Master Puzzler Mike Selinker launched Maze of Games. It’s a mystery novel wrapped in puzzles and hidden in a maze — and it’s been years in the making.
Mike’s fellow Seattlites, One Reel, are bringing back the evergreen Emerald City Search. Seek and you shall find!
If puzzles make you hungry, you’ll drool over FarmOutProject’s Hungry Games.
And a puzzle post wouldn’t be complete without a bit of mystery, so answer this riddle: Scramble the letters in KICKSTARTER to make a two-word phrase defining people who play a certain kind of card game…

What’s a mole cat? A hybrid of a cat and a mole. Where do they live? The Molecat Village. What is a Molecat Twist? The challenging puzzle game that takes place in their weird and wonderful world. Molecats like to eat mushrooms and go on adventures, but it’s up to the player to help guide them on their way.
In an effort to make the game appealing to both casual and master gamers, the Molecats Team have crafted a complex world with simple controls, making it “easy to learn, but hard to master.” Watch their trailer and lean more on their project page. A $10 pledge gets you a digital pre-order!
