About Joe

Joe is not Leon

Anyone who's played the original Clutter game knows a little bit about Joe. Joe is not Leon, but some of the details of Joe's life were worked into the story. Here are just some of the real facts of Joe's almost 60 years of life.

Joe was born in a little town called Penacook N.H., a voting district of Concord N.H. but a separate town (population was about 3000 back then). Joe attended Immaculate Conception School until 6th grade and then attended Merrimack Valley High School. Joe decided to attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Joe only took one computer course at RPI.

Joe moved on to work at iWin creating the highly successful Mah Jong Quest I, II and III (and little game called Sproink). After leaving iWin at the end of 2009 to work on his own games he joined an Atlanta Slots/Gaming company beginning in 2011 and ending in 2013. Joe now devotes 100% of his time to Puzzles By Joe and The Clutter Series.

    I own Clutterville v and absolutely love it! However I am having a problem with the scoring (#of puzzles solved). It has been on 376 points for several months now. The total of Clutterville v points is 535. How do I start getting points again? I have worked numerous puzzles since I hit the 376 points mark. I will probably buy the Clutterville vi sometime later this year. Thanks in advance.

    I own all the Clutter games & love them. I have a question on Who’s The Void Replay. I don’t have any hints left & cannot figure out how to earn them. In the later versions of your Clutter games, hints are earned by coins & carried from game to game within that Clutter game. It seems that The Void hints are earned for each individual game. Is this a hiccup in The Void or am I missing something?

      Hi Dannel:
      In later games, there is an option to always allow hints.
      In this game, in Void Replay, I removed the Coins and the levels are untimed.
      There’s also a bug where the hints earned elsewhere won’t show up here.
      In later games, the hints used elsewhere are available here.
      Sorry about that.
      So…you’re not missing anything.
      Just a bug that I didn’t even realize was a bug until I was just about to ship Clutter IV: Minigame Madness Tour.
