During the last months, I have worked on a new 3d jigsaw puzzle game
named “Gaia 3D Puzzle”. The goal was to produce a jigsaw puzzle game
with the same realism as a real jigsaw puzzle.
All the puzzle pieces are in 3D. Like real puzzle pieces, you can see
the cardboard on the sides and the pieces are rounded on the edges
because of the cut. This kind of model requires thousand of polygons.
The game also allows the players to change the piece definition to get a
better frame rate on older computers.
The biggest advantage is the 3D aspect. Because the puzzle is modeled in
a 3D environment, that means that any puzzle pieces can be moved outside
of the screen viewport. You can zoom in/out. Zooming will change the
number of pieces available on the screen and how big the pieces appear.
You can also stack the pieces like a real jigsaw puzzle, however there
is a limit of 8 pieces in height.
The game uses DirectX 9.0c for the graphics/sound and runs on Windows
2000/XP/Vista. It is also programmed in C++.
You can download and get more information about the game at
If you try the game, do not hesitate to send me your comments.
