Create a puzzle game with free HTML5 tool

Based in the UK, master of puzzles Stephen Lavelle, aka Increpare (opens in new tab), spends much of his time developing experimental, conceptual, and abstract games. And with his newly released free tool, now you can too.

Puzzle Script (opens in new tab) is an open source, rule-based HTML5 game engine that's designed to be an easy-to-use engine so users with even the most basic knowledge of scripting can create a tile-based puzzle game.

If you're new to the concept, be sure to read 'First Steps' page, which will help you get started.

Once you've mastered the basics, head over to the browser-based script editor to start creating your games, in which Lavelle has, helpfully, included a player so users can test their creation as it's developed.
