Welcome to Befuddle Quest
, a series of collaborative puzzle/maze games done as a community project. Using a specific product, RPG Maker 2003, the participants each made a single map puzzle using RTP and I linked them together in a quest. Why RM2k3? Because it's accessible to the majority of people and because it's pretty easy to link maps together using it. That, and I ran the show and that's what I use (because I'm old).
The first community collaborative project ran in April 2009, with the second running in May and the third and final one just this past August. Participation was pretty good, with 27 total puzzles in the trilogy.
