Welcome to the Perplex City Wiki
Forumsig 8.jpg


New Stuff!

Yes, it's real actual new stuff about our beloved Perplexians!! Seriously!! =) This technically lands in the world of "fan-fiction," but bear in mind that the fans in question are the writers and creators of Perplex City.

"The old PXC story team have been talking about old times lately – how much we loved working together, and how much we loved our players. So we decided to write a little unofficial Perplex City fanfiction as our gift for the Restitution of the Cube. We hope you enjoy it!"

Go and read!

Primary people of interest: Kurt McAllister | Scarlett Kiteway | Violet Kiteway | Caine Johansson | Rory Earlywine

There's plenty of little updates on all sorts of things, including Sente Kiteway, Nathan Earlywine, Roll For Damage, Alejo Jackson, Joya, Randal Tokei, Anjsbourg, Viendenbourg, Xia-Hifa, Anna Heath, and lesser topics like Deep Blue, Varkin and Alchemy Bay.

Happy Restitution of the Cube!!!!


Perplex City Information

[edit] Game Overview

Season 1: The Receda Cube was stolen from the Academy Museum in a daring heist. Through clever use of Puzzle Cards sent to Earth by Sente Kiteway, as well as deucedly clever gumshoeing by everyone involved, we discovered Violet Kiteway, Sente's daughter, stole the cube to protect it from The Third Power.

Season 2: After foiling V at the Radio 1 Big Weekend, Mind Candy announced a premature end to what promised to be a good set of stories.

[edit] Hot Topics

Shuffled.png
  • The Djinn virus, which the card is about, infected Keys around the city, causing 750 million Lecks of damage.
  • All this havoc was caused by Redward Price, an aspiring young Academy pupil with something to prove.
