Need your Help

Maze Creator could use your help in future projects to improve the Maze Creator line.  We are looking for technical writers, educators, graphic artists, various designers.  If you are interested in trading your services for a life-time of gratitude, immortality, and credit on the world leader in Maze Creation, please contact us at mazecreator@mazecreator.com with your skills and we will let you know what we might have available.  Some tasks we can pay a small fee in exchange for services as well as to give by-line credit.

Are you interested in creating Tilers?  This will require patients and a high degree of attention to detail.  Tilers become the paint brush for Maze Creator when selected as the active template.  There are plenty of designs that can be created; train track, garden path, road-way, race track, boating water-way just to name a few.  See the Sting Tiler below as an example.


Price Change

We are announcing a price increase on Maze Creator HOME.  New price will be $25.95 effective at the end of this month.  If you have been considering purchasing that product, now is the time to save money.  Create puzzles for your class-room or family.  We will be holding our pricing the same for the STD and PRO versions.  You can purchase the HOME version now.

We frequently get questions about lesson plans using Maze Creator.  Teachers around the world would like help integrating Maze Creator's puzzles into their class exercises and their students learning experience.  This is where we would like your help.

We would like to compile 10+ lesson plans to make freely available to all.  We would like the breakdown for target grades to be as follows:

  • K-2
  • 3-6
  • 7-8
  • 9-12

The topic can be on any topic, some examples:

  • History
  • Health
  • Astronomy/Space
  • Technology
  • Science

Let that wet your whistle. If Maze Creator accepts and would like to publish your lesson plan on our website or in eBook format.  As a reward to you, we will give you two Maze Creator STD licenses.  One for you and one for your school.  This is almost a $80.00 value.  You will also have a byline credit for yourself and your educational institution.

All accepted lesson plans will be compiled (sometime after we get 10 submissions, but not before November 2007) and voted upon for best lesson plan.  The winner will get the following:

  • 1 Maze Creator PRO license for their school news paper ($249.95 Value)
  • enough Maze Creator STD licenses to fill their school's computer lab (Max will be 100 licenses, up to $3,995.00 value)

Use the "Show Tiler Gallery" option from the "File" menu to access this new Tiler.  This will let you download this new tiler for your use.

We have some thoughts about a competition to get more tilers for Maze Creator.  Tune in next time for more details.

Missing files from maze software Install

Missing files from Software Install

With the latest releases; Maze Creator STD and HOME did not include the ClipArt that is normally bundled with the application.  This was an oversight and will be corrected in future releases.  For the time being, please download them from the Maze Creator Download Extras page and unzip them into your installation directory.  This should create a subfolder "ClipArt" with the BMP and GIF versions of the arrows.

Growing pains....

Maze Creator would like to thank our new customers for their patients.  We have had to move to another new server to properly load balance.  We are finding our puzzles are VERY popular.  Our free give-a-ways have been well received by everyone other than our server!

We have completed the programming to improve new customer experience.  After a purchase of Maze Creator HOME, STD, or PRO through out store, the Maze Creator  registrar will send out your license out within 1 - 5 minutes.
