In this thesis, I designed and implemented a set of designer-targeted tools and libraries for procedurally generating puzzles for video games and interactive fiction. The system has the goals of producing solvable and flexible general-purpose puzzles through the use of simple tools targeted at small development teams. The system is implemented as two graphical tools built with the Java Swing Toolkit and a runtime library written for the popular Unity game engine. Two games have been built with earlier versions of the tools and one game was built with the most recent iteration of the tools to test the effectiveness of the system.
