A game of competitive puzzle-design.
At its core, this is an abstract turn-based puzzle game in which you pick a lock by co-ordinating a pair of tools to manipulate its mechanism. The locks you pick are designed by other players; once you have figured out the secret of how to pick a lock, you must secure that secret behind a lock of your own devising.
Free software, released under the GPLv3.
Written in Haskell, with SDL and Curses user interfaces.
Latest version is 0.4 NEWS. If you have the haskell package manager 'cabal' and the SDL dependencies, you can install intricacy from hackage with cabal update && cabal install intricacy. Otherwise, see below.
