A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Puzzle Key is a tool to help you visualise your adventure game puzzles and make puzzle dependency charts.

Create nodes for each step of your puzzles. Colour code them to help see puzzle-type distribution and flow.


Right click to add a stand-alone node and enter some text for that step of the puzzle.

Then you can drag out in either direction to create adjoining nodes. Change their colour from the right-click menu.

Hi,  this looks great. I'd  love to take it for a spin. It's exactly what i'm needing.

Can you please include a linux build?

Thank you

I’ve added a linux build but I don’t actually have linux installed so I’m not able to test it properly. Let me know if it doesn’t work.

The window keeps spawning quite a bit off my screen, I think its because of my resolution scaling. If its cool with you, please add "OS.center_window()" to the code for when it starts up?

I’ve made that change - version 1.0.1 for both Windows and macOS are now available.

Ah, thanks good sir!
