Although studying creativity is considered a legitimate scientific discipline nowadays, it is still a very young one. One of Guilford’s most famous studies was the nine-dot puzzle.
Guilford was one of the first academic researchers who dared to conduct a study of creativity.
He challenged research subjects to connect all nine dots using just four straight lines without lifting their pencils from the page.
Today many people are familiar with this puzzle and its solution.
This bad boy goes to none other than Bedoop’s stage titled “Going Bananas But It’s Fresh Milk”.
It’s been an exciting past couple of weeks judging your submissions, and we’re finally ready to announce the winners of our Stage Builder Contest for Yeah Jam Fury! This gnarly award goes to Drarky’s stage named “I miss the old pogo SFX” (sorry dude, perhaps a future DLC? This stage pushed our coordination skills to the limits by requiring extremely precise reaction time and control. After calming down and thinking critically about the situation we managed to finally snag that mango. All three winners of these categories will be receiving a 0 Amazon e Gift Card, a Steam Key for the game, copies of our soundtracks, as well as this poster of a real mango: Mango Poster Congratulations you three!
Just loading the stage in the builder caused our computers to chug, so this must have taken some massive amount of patience! It showcased a funky physics exploit that slipped under the QA radar (but honestly aren’t all bugs just features?
The stage layout really threw us for a loop at first, but we are Yeah Jam Fury masters!
In other words, the “trick” was revealed in advance.
Would you like to guess the percentage of the participants in the second group who solved the puzzle correctly?
Because the solution is, in hindsight, deceptively simple, clients tended to admit they should have thought of it themselves.
