  • Sugar Jay

    You ever gonna showcase your own designs? Even if you don't want to spoil them, it would be cool to see. I mean what does being a puzzle designer even mean? Do you sell your creations or share them at all? Or just make them to enter into competitions or what? Total noob on the subject, never even bothered to learn to solve a rubix cube, but I find your channel so fascinating.

    • Sugar Jay
      Sugar Jay 11 months ago

      Hey man thanks for the prompt and thorough reply. I'll check those out for sure! Keep up the good work. Great entertainment!

    • FLEB
      FLEB  11 months ago +1

      I don't showcase my own design, because I make mostly puzzlehunt and logic puzzles, as opposed to mechanical puzzles! For example, here is a puzzle I designed where the answer is an English word or phrase: www.baphl.org/15/static/puzzles/puzzle_1-8.pdf
      Being a puzzle designer means that, well, I design puzzles! I designed all the puzzles in the video game RYB, I'm designing the puzzles for two other videogames, two books, and I'm publishing a mechanical puzzle set soonish.
      Some of my puzzles that are available for free were published as part of puzzle competitions. If you look up DASH 6, DASH 7, BAPHL 3, BAPHL 13, BAPHL 15, or Puzzled Pint you can find some puzzles that I designed.
      I hope that helps!

      It was made from a template by TVclip use SDJGRedstoneDJ. I searched Google for "free TVclip intros", picked one I liked, and the edited it in After Effects. Usually the template come with a guide on how the author wants the intro to be used, so be sure to read it!

      Ryan rohr, you REALLY. Shouldn't judge people on how they look. It seems to me like he loves what he does, (puzzling/being a TVclipr) and it takes courage to show your face on the internet. You see all these comments judging people and I'm sure you wouldn't want all those thing about you being said by your friends (that is, if you have any) behind your back.
      You didn't even spell Faggot right.
