Introducing the Maze Map!
The outpouring of support has allowed us to make a new extension of The Maze of Games: this stellar maze map. It’s an all-new optimization puzzle by Mike and Eric Harshbarger, featuring many of the characters you’ll find in the Maze. And it’s writ large: the map poster will be roughly three feet across when unfolded.
Here’s a mockup by graphic designer Corey Macourek of what a single panel of the Maze Map might look like (art and puzzles not final):
We’re offering this for a $10 add-on to any copy of the book, physical or electronic. But if you already have the Gatekeeper Limited Edition, you don’t need to order this map, because it will already come built into your book. Here’s an updated price list.
That coffee table of yours isn’t completely consumed by a puzzle yet. So reserve your maze map today.
Reddit, Story Forward, and the Song Stylist badge
In addition to today’s Reddit AMA, you can listen to Mike talk about The Maze of Games on the transmedia podcast Story Forward. It is very possible that both of those are involved in the acquisition of the new Song Stylist badge, which still has more information to come.
On an unrelated note, Mike gets interviewed by the Successful Nerd site about the business behind running a Kickstarter. That’s a little off the beaten track, but worth a read.
