    Kickstarter MazeScroll Babies Project Launched (News Release)


    New Kickstarter project reinvents the maze puzzle games for the whole family. These maze puzzle games that play like board games are in the form of scrolls can be played by multiple players.

    Federal Way, Washington. The new Kickstarter project campaign, MazeScroll Babies, has just launched. The campaign will run through to Thursday, April 3, 9:00PM Pacific Time. The campaign has been launched to raise funding for the MazeScroll Babies, a group of 8 maze puzzle games in the form of a scroll. Each MazeScroll measures 6×48 inches and comes inside a protective tube package. The MazeScroll Babies have been created by the artist and designer Maciek (aka Mick Jonze) Jozefowicz, who is the creator of another successfully backed Kickstarter project, Labyrinthos. The link to the Kickstarter project page is https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maciekjozefowicz/mazescroll-babies .

    The MazeScroll Babies use the elongated format of the scroll to allow for muti-player games. When unrolled and placed on a coffee table or the floor, the MazeScroll allow four people to gather around the maze, two on either side. The puzzle games are designed to be played by more than one player.

    The eight different designs that are available through Kickstarter were chosen by Jonze based on graphic style and game-play. “I wanted each of the scroll to be visually different and each to offer a slightly different way of play. The eight MazeScrolls are: Crossing, De Stijl Mile, Lover’s Duel, Galaxy Far, Faar, Faaar Away, Perimeter Perplexity, Skritches, Skretches and Skrutches, Daedalus Palace and Daedalus Treasure.

    The artist refers to these eight puzzles as his MazeScroll Babies, hence the title of the Kickstarter project.

    “A creator’s creations are like his children. And to be honest, the pack that each MazeScroll comes in is cute. It’s like holding a baby, a MazeScroll Baby,” explains the artist. “I guess creating eight MazeScroll Babies makes me the octodad.”

    And to carry that theme further, the Kickstarter campaign slogan that the artist created is “Adopt a MazeScroll Baby.” Backers of the project can adopt individual MazeScroll Babies or the whole set of eight.

    The artist has been developing the MazeScrolls since 2009 when he took a leftover roll of art paper from his architecture project and created his first hand drawn maze in the form of a scroll. Since that first scroll, Jonze has created over 48 MazeScrolls. He has experimented with different graphic styles, different lengths of scroll, and different game play possibilities.
