overview


There's a word encrypted in this mysterious cube. Can you find out what it says?

  • $\begingroup$ Reminds me a lot from that one maze in The Room, I assume that just like that puzzle, the solution here will involve rotating layers. There doesn't seem to be a defined start/endpoint... but it seems fairly clear that this is a maze. There's a large possibility that we're trying to find a loop that passes through every line segment. EDIT: Aaaand that possibility went down the drain. Too many exits from the bottom layer, not enough links in the layer above. $\endgroup$ – TheGreatEscaper Dec 14 '16 at 23:24

I think the answer is

stack

Explanation:

If you look at the cube positioned with its blue face looking at 'north', and the purple side towards you, every layer has a letter-shaped pattern in the strings. You can already see the first S in the 3-dimensional picture provided in the question.
Supposing that the purple strings all connect two different sides, this is how each layer may look like: enter image description here
or: enter image description here
Both of these look like saying 'STACK'.

Added by OP:

the real thing this is

Parital Answer

Note: (I won't have time to push this further right now, so by all means, someone pick it up and run with it)

The cube is actually:

A set of 5 tiles.

Ideas:

Each tile has two large faces and I think that's where the letters are.
All of the lines on each tile need to form a closed loop.

Picture:

First Tile

PS:

It still remains to be seen if you are indeed funny.
