Sliding/rotating tile-game based on CC-licensed art for MAKERS serial

As part of the ongoing serialization of Makers, my forthcoming book (late October 2009, from Tor USA and HarperCollins UK), has commissioned a series of 81 interlocking, Creative Commons-licensed illustrations from Idiots' Books. Each illustration's four edges line up with any of the other illustrations' edges.

Now Tor has released a Flash game that lets you arrange the tiles to form new illustrations, with new tiles being added three times a week, as each new installment comes online. Tile away!

Tile Game (Flash)

Behold: The Makers Tile Game, version 1.0!


  1. If by “fun to illustrate” you mean “mind-bogglingly taxing” then you are right! I can’t imagine how tile-makers or fabric designers do it. My limited mental faculties aside, though, now that I’ve gotten going on these, they ARE fun. And even more fun now that I can do all the rotating and arranging with a click of a button. Thanks, Tor!
    And thanks for liking it –
