The Puzzle Code was invented by Josh Ragsdell in November of 2006. The original inspiration for this alphabet was another writing system on Omniglot, Betamaze, which gave Josh the idea to create a system where the letters fit together - a puzzle.

Notable features

  • Used to write: English
  • Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines.
  • Each letter is made to look like a puzzle piece.
  • A letter is determined only by the bumps or openings on the right and bottom sides of each puzzle piece.
  • There are no spaces between letters or rows.
  • The right side of a letter determines the left side of the following letter and the bottom side determines the top side of the letter below it.
  • If the right side of a letter has a bump the adjacent letter will have an opening for the bump to fit in, like a puzzle. The same is true for the bottom side. If a space or nothing is above or to the left of a letter the top and/or left sides will stay flat. An example is shown below.
  • Numbers work the same way except their bumps and openings are squares.
  • There is no difference between lower case and upper case letters.
