Puzzles, brain games and riddles have a long tradition.
In the recent years, new perspectives and though-provoking takes on casual puzzle design can be observed. One of the latest developments in puzzle gaming and thought-provoking challenges of the mind is the Red Bull Mind Gamers platform.
Red Bull Mind Gamers brings together mind gamers of all levels, to challenge their problem-solving skills, play games developed by some of the brightest minds in the industry and explore mind challenges in online and offline form. Red Bull Mind Gamers’ home is the online platform that kicks off annual real-world challenges in all parts of the world.
The platform highlights best practice example games that can be played for free. New games and their designers are being highlighted throughout the year. The games on the platform should not take longer than 30 minutes and are contextualised by a gamified backend where players can collect „mind skill points“ by completing the games.
With Red Bull Mind Gamers we are interested in pushing puzzle online games to a broader level and to motivate designer to create innovative playful games that challenge different mind skills. The games are designed to challenge six mind skills – logic, strategy, creativity, visual thinking, musical intelligence and memory.
As a hub for puzzle solvers and escape roomers alike we push the boundaries of the brightest minds in the world.
