Welcome to the dark, dark world of Inside3

Inside3 is a fascianting range of blind puzzle cubes. Players must face everything they’ve ever been scared of – the dark, loneliness, abandonment. Launch your ball from the window in to the centre of the cube. Use your maps to carefully orientate the puzzle, leading your ball through twists, turns, dead-ends, traps and multiple routes. Only the most skilled players will make it to the other side.

The ZERO Series asks players to forget everything they’ve learnt. Players progress through EASY, REGULAR and MEAN – right through VISCIOUS, AWFUL and MORTAL. Minimal maps, traps and wrong turns all await you in the darkness. The final cube, MORTAL, has no map at all…and cannot be opened!

The PHANTOM series all include an extra ball, locked inside the maze – it’s purpose? to trick your senses and confuse your orientation skills. The ultimate cube is the CTHULU – branded with a coded map and a route so sinister even the inventor’s aren’t sure it’s achievable. Will you be the first to unlock the mystery of the Cthulu?

The History and The Future

Inside3 is the brainchild of French inventor Romain-Guirec Piotte. Originally Romain wanted to make horror films – and this sinister intent lives on in Inside3. Inspired by his favourite movies and books (Alien, the Descent, House of Leaves, Cube, Portal, Dungeons and Dragons, Hellraiser, the Raiders of the lost Ark, Journey to the centre of the Earth) he constructed a series of puzzle cubes all around the concept of getting lost, being alone and having to find your own way back to the light.

All Inside3 Puzzles are designed and manufactured in France to the highest standards. Their pure and simple aim is to deliver exciting, intriguing and terrifying puzzles – each of the highest quality possible.

As for the future – he first 12 puzzles are only the initial chapter of the story. The ultimate plan is to release a total of 216 cubes  which all combine together to form a 6 x 6 x 6 MOTHER CUBE. Though this closely kept secret is little more than a conspiracy theory now, the seed has been sewn for a legacy of mind bending blind puzzles.
