Cipher: Crack the Code

Cipher LogoCipher: Crack the Code is a unique website project that was developed mostly between 2008 and 2012. It is an HTML-based puzzle game in the tradition of the “online riddle game,” a genre first popularized in 2003 by David Münnich and his notoriously challenging NotPr0n riddle. After being the 13th person to solve all 140 levels of Münnich’s riddle in 2009, Benjamin began developing his own riddle game, which has since garnered thousands of fans worldwide, particularly in eastern Asia. Visit the game (and perhaps give it a try) at www.cipherriddle.com, and see what people are saying about it here.

It’s worth noting that the more “lo-fi,” bare-bones design of the Cipher website is a necessary element for its nature as an HTML game, which often requires its players to study source codes and pry into the underlying structure of the website and its page in order to solve its puzzles.
