Project Puzzle RPG – Big Ol’ Development Thread

Hello there,

You probably know that I’m hard at work on my next iPhone game (temporarily titled PPRPG). I thought it might be a nice idea to collect all of the posts, titbits, and information in one place. This blog post will be that place. A big ol’ post of posts.

I’ll make an effort to update this frequently with links to my development posts so that this is a sort of table of contents. I also want to use it to update you on progress.


PPRPG is a puzzle game with strong RPG (role playing game) elements. It features puzzling puzzles, character levelling, classes, quests, an inventory, loot, and a story.

Its all about distilling the escence of a role playing game and injecting it into the accessibility of a puzzle game. You’ll be able to approach the game in bite-szed chunks whilst still enjoying depth to the gameplay. All of this, tied together, in an extremely accessible touch interface for gaming on the go.

If you can feel a sense of exploration and wonderment, head-scratching puzzlement, and feel compelled to keep on playing, I’ll consider the game a success!
