There are times that I want to make mazes with one-way portions, and I recently figured out a way to do so that would kinda make sense without saying much.

In February, I titled the image “over there” as in where to go when solving the maze, but it looks so dense as I post it now that I prefer the name Crowded Mouse.

I started this maze while on the train with Lin to Paola and Jon’s house. Start at one of the small dots and travel to the other dot, using teleportation points as needed.

Travis had an interesting idea for a promotional tool: a business card creator!  He made one at FabCafe in Shibuya based on this design.

This took a while to create.  I started with a maze that followed a grid and then curved all the curves smoothly with meticulous cutting and pasting of quarter circles.   I don’t know if there’s a faster way to do it with Gimp, but Travis was able to recreate something like this much more quickly with Illustrator, I think he said.

If you follow the paths without turning sharply, it’s relatively difficult to travel between the white nodes that are diagonally opposite each other.

This maze uses a tiling technique that makes for interesting patterns and slightly faster maze-making.  However, it makes the making so easy that the solving is too difficult for me personally.  I use flood fill to make sure it’s solvable.

Oh, and it’s called Comedy because I was watching Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K. when I made it.

I have no idea why I called this Circles, but the interior jagged lines were created by creating a relatively tight grid in Gimp and telling the cursor to follow the grid.

The start and end points are on the right, near the top.
