Has anyone tried to make their own Unlock! adventure for pnp? TIME stories had plenty fan made expansions (I have one even), and with it being the same company, I wondered if they allow it, or if anyone has considered it yet.

Problem is the needed app to use for resolving codes. That would be a missed feature for fan-made versions.

Not really... you can give a booklet with the codes...
The only problem is that it would be just one try code. Or we can think about other solutions like making one excel file (for example) with a cell where you place the code and it tells you if it´s ok or not with a formula like =if(cell_with_answer=cell_where_you_write;"correct","fail")

It would be very easy to create that excel file

good point. I was thinking the puzzle piece part would be do-able, I forgot the codes, so yeah, the excel file would have to have a bunch of numbers so you couldn't accidentally see the answers to other parts of the game.
Codes could be replaced by other means to find cards with the answers, but it would not be the same.

The game is also somehow pretty art dependent. In time stories, you can easily make a cool scenario without making any art. I feel that this is harder here.

But it would be really fun to make a fan scenario I would love to see some.

No.. just the correct codes... =if function is one answer if right other if not...

Here is a link to one example I create
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YsNGVI64QCSA31qJ1aMdiaBO808...

Code es 1234 by the way and it tells you to pick one card as you put the correct code

Oh, I didn't think you meant a function. Yeah, that works. I was thinking for a non electronic spreadsheet.

I have tried it!

I made one adventure for my friends and now I'm creating the second!

For the app I used Mit App Inventor
(http://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/front.html)

This may not be exactly what you are looking for but if anyone is motivated to make an Unlock inspired game, you should know that The Game Crafter is running and escape room game contest right now. Could be a great opportunity!
