Jump In! Let's Play!

"I design easy to learn but challenging games of many types and themes, for all kinds of people, that are interesting, accessible, and engaging right-out-of-the-box to have a great time and make friends for life.”  -Cory Muddiman-

Bringing People Together

MuddPuddle designs focus on games that incorporate simple, familiar and intuitive mechanics paired with unique and interesting themes not seen in many other games.  These characteristics encourage families and friends to spend the often limited time they share in novel, memorable, and stress-reducing ways. 

Promoting Play

MuddPuddle games use familiar components such as cards, tokens,  dice, or even the game board itself in new or clever ways.  These nuances make learning to play more fun and comfortable for those who might be new to the hobby while still engaging and challenging experienced players with twists on similar designs. 

Titles in Development
