Hello there! I'm 1 day late but yesterday was my 1st cake-day!
It's been nice joining this community, I've won several good and fun games over the past year, mostly thanks to puzzle solving.
So I decided to make a puzzle myself and give someone else a good chance to win what I think are some really good games (little train after 1st part + grand prize at the end)
You can start here
I know you'd like to ask me the title of the games in the GA's, but I don't feel like I should tell it to you right away.
I mean, what I'm hinting at here is:
Maybe the puzzle is a bit long, but I hope it's not too hard/easy/boring.
You have 2 weeks. A bump once in a while would be nice. Thanks and I hope you enjoy it! ^^

I wasn't planning on giving away hints, but I will try to help anyway. If you just look at the pictures, unless you can read my mind, you won't be able to solve the puzzle. There are clues hidden where I hint at them, which can guide you almost step by step through the 1st part (in one of my comments below I said I've written something in a certain way for a reason).
Mind the title of the puzzle too, you often have to consider the 1st of something; that can apply multiple times, in different ways, through the whole puzzle.
Lastly, I'm no encryption master, think simple. If I point you at something, just look for it (especially true for 2nd part).
Well let's see. Concerning 1st part:
I reformatted "a little" the text to make more evident where you should look. Probably too much ^^"
I won't give further hints for this part.
Concerning 2nd part, I see basically everyone is stuck there. I'll give you a few hints:
no clue what to do bump
If it makes you feel better, you're not the only one.
I received some flak for creating a puzzle for Staxel. All good, constructive criticism mind you. If the puzzles are a lot of work for some stupid title, yeah a lot of people might be upset, and potentially blacklist.
Haven't attempted yet, just wanted to add my thought!
Happy post cake day!
Attempted, now I'm even more confused than I normally am.
I can relate to that, I mean a blacklist is going far, but I like to know which game I am trying to get before getting frustrated over a puzzle, I hid a lot of games so high chance it won't have any for me and that's why I really dislike it when I am doing my best on a maybe not even fun puzzle just to find out AGAIN it has nothing I care for.
Same as Maruten above, it'd be nice to know what games are in a difficult puzzle. I wouldn't blacklist for any puzzle but I know how frustrating it sometimes is when you complete a really hard puzzle only to have nothing you didn't already have or want. It's just practical, if the games aren't listed, now I only do them if the puzzles are simple or the maze ones that aren't really a puzzle unless it was a big event maybe.
I would never blacklist for a silly reason like that either, but I've heard some weird stories. I received my first blacklist back when I was a month or two old on the site, and one more a month or two ago randomly.
The puzzle that I created was for Staxel, and I just had a lot of fun making the puzzle itself. Didn't even think about whether or not it was a game popular among the masses or not. A few people mentioned that it was a bit disappointing end, but, live and learn.
Blacklist means absolutely nothing when you use steamgifts like any other forum/community (and buy the majority of your own games).
This puzzle has me absolutely stumped, and I have that feeling it's going to be a game that I'm not interested in, but god damn, I'm curious.
I would not blacklist. But yeah, it sucks when you are solving a puzzle for games you are not interested
I willingly took a risk there. I know someone would eventually complain about it. I already got blacklisted by one person yesterday. Might that be the reason? Maybe, who knows? Or better, who cares? I'm pretty sure I'll get more.
To be honest though (take this as a hint for the puzzle itself), it was all an excuse, I wrote those few lines about not telling game titles for a reason and they've been written that way for a reason too.
What I can tell you is that after 1st part you get access to a 4 wagons train: 3 humble bundle leftovers from September monthly + one game that is in top40 of SG community wishlist (and going up). The grand prize at the end of the puzzle is even better. I can't say more :X
No clue what to do bump #2
I don't even, but have a bump.
Happy belated cake!
whelp youve stumped the people. meaning you did a great job!
no clue at the moment but I think the harder will be to find the first answer...
Just think, it's gonna end up being Fortix or Bad Rats!
Bump for solved 1!
Hmm, I have some basic observations about this but it's not enough to make any reasonable guesses...
Happy belated cake day! I don't think I'm going to do this puzzle but anyways thanks for making one! :)
No idea what to do, but happy cake day :)
oh man, I used to read these in my grandpa's old books, who knew it would be of use one day :D
nope, maybe I was wrong...
I can't know for sure, but if you recognize them, you're most likely right. Just, there's more to do with them.
Yup! Got the first idea but I can't seem to figure out what to do with what I got, I tried a bunch of stuff already but we'll see if I figure it out!
Decript the picture, but dont know what to do with that. all guesses are wrong.
And what does it mean "ITH 1" in the top of the puzzle?
My guess is that ITH 1 means "It's Too Hard 1"
Exactly, it's just a title, it has nothing to do with the picture.
What on earth? Happy cake day I guess ;)
Happy 1st cake day!
No idea where to even begin with your puzzle.
Edit: Step -1: Congratulation & Thanks for being creative :)
Step 0: Be puzzled and look dump. Check.
Step 1: Understand first layer of the puzzle. Check
Step 2-?: ??? - Nope no idea (also see step 0)
EDIT nr.6: Having two possible sets now... no further light at the horizon though :/
I have no idea what to do with that picture I don't see question to answer so it won't be for me I guess. But happy cake day! :D
Happy belated cake day! ⏰ 🎂
Judging the public perception from the above comments I wonder if your GAs got 5 entries which is a requirement for getting the CV for those GAs. 😕
PS: I too couldn't make heads or tails of that image in the puzzle.
Happy cake day!
1st part solved, but you've lost me with the 2nd part.
Happy cakyday! :)
I solved the first part, and have some ideas for the second, but it didn't worked yet, so I'm gonna try later...
Happy cakeday bump! Solved the first part, but no idea for the second one. 🙂
Happy belated cake day :-)
