Geode is a jigsaw puzzle inspired by the formation of agates, a colorful banded stone. Each puzzle is unique, emerging from a computer simulation that creates natural variations in the shape, pieces, and image.
Cut style - Maze
This puzzle is cut in a dense, maze-like cut pattern. The extreme intertwining and high piece count make Maze the hardest cut style. The pieces are grown in a simulation of elastic rods. The edges grow, lengthening, until they collide, pushing each other into contorted shapes.
Artwork - Algorithmic Agate
Each computer generated image represents a slice of an algorithmic geode. Concentric layers of color radiate from the puzzle’s edge filling the surface with a banded pattern reminiscent of agate. Each band of growth exhibits slight changes in growth rate, color and character resulting in a unique pattern. These larger puzzles feature zones of orbicular pattern, bubble-like disruptions in the bands. We create these by introducing new seeds of growth during the generation process.
