Aspiring toy and game designer Brady Whitney has struck Kickstarter gold with his Codex Silenda, a 5-page book where every page is an intricate puzzle that must be solved before the next page can be unlocked.
Constructed from laser-cut wood, the puzzle book also features a short story of an apprentice in Da Vinci’s Workshop. The project, which launched on Kickstarter last week, has been suspended due to overwhelming demand.
The team was originally seeking US$30,000 so they could purchase a laser cutter. They quickly amassed over US$170,000 before deciding to halt the campaign so they could be sure they could fulfil the rewards of the original project backers.
