An Adventure Book Where You Must Solve a Puzzle To Unlock the Next Page

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.

Codex Silenda is a five page book that features five intricate puzzles. The user must solve each page’s puzzle to unlock it and access the next one.


Constructed completely from lasercut wood, this puzzle book also features a short story of an apprentice in Da Vinci’s Workshop. The Codex acts as a trap and as a test to see whether or not the apprentice is worthy of Da Vinci’s tutelage; can you help him escape the Codex and discover it’s secrets within?

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.
