Latest build | Corrupted Cosmonaut

Corrupted Cosmonaut – papercraft model, my build.
Difficulty: ★★☆☆☆ (2/5)
Time: an hour at most

Another astronaut papertoy in my collection!
This one was created for Paper Jam 1: A Fungus Fighters and is interesting in several aspects:

  • Interesting construction technique – single piece is converted into desired shape by clever use of flaps and folds.
  • Paper toy comes with a story and a puzzle to solve – you can discover a password to unlock additional papertoy and another part of an accompanying story!

I loved the puzzle – it proved to be challenging enough and I had an interesting discussion with papertoy author about clues and my journey to the final solution. While I guessed right away where the password was hidden, I had trouble getting an actual word. I managed to find all the clues and finally got this decoding right.
It was a great fun!
