Puzzledorf a game by AIE Alumni Stuart Burfield available via Steam
What Makes A Good Puzzle?
Play through a variety of beautiful worlds solving challenging puzzles.
Puzzledorf is a pixel art, block-pushing puzzle game where simplicity meets challenge. The objective of the game is to simply match the coloured block to the coloured cross. As you advance through each level, you are introduced to new and colourful worlds that will test the problem-solving ability of the player. Designed for all ages, Puzzledorf can be a fantastic way to exercise the brain whilst immersing yourself in the vibrant 2d art.
Stuart Burfield, Puzzledorf solo developer, graduated from the Advanced Diploma of Professional Game Development specialising in Game Programming and Graduate Diploma of Management (Learning). During his study, Stuart began developing the game as a side project, however, never imagined it growing to the pre-release success it has reached. “At some stage I realised people found my small puzzle games addictive, and I decided to build out a full commercial project, which was my pitch for the AIE Incubator Program.”
In his detailed and insightful article, AIE Incubator Program & Puzzledorf, Stuart comments on a few of the challenges he faced when creating the game. “Being a solo developer certainly creates lots of interesting challenges, not the least of which is the knowledge that, if you’re not doing it, no one is, which tends to make projects take longer.”
Set for release in August, Puzzledorf has already made waves with its Announcement Trailer. Just shy of 160K+ views, it is easy to see why so many people are eagerly counting down the days till available!
