The art looks great. There seem to be several recent (and excellent) IOS games releases that mix word play with RPG elements, but they are single player focused.

Can you tell anything about the expected release date and the game's revenue model?

Thanks! We are planning to release sometime before or right around GDC (March 17th).

As for revenue, the game will be a free download. We have 3 out of the 5 heroes free to play with the other two being sold for $0.99.


We will also be selling vanity tiles for $0.99. These are strictly a cosmetic thing that you and your opponents will use to differentiate each other on the battlefield.

The pricing scheme sounds very reasonable, if not underpriced. I signed up for the TestFlight beta and am looking forward to giving this a go.

Our mentality is that even if a player buy nothing, they are still adding value to the game by playing and being an opponent for someone else to play against. I think a lot of other F2P games see non-paying customers as not important and thats a toxic mindset that ruins the experience.

Thanks for signing up for the beta! Got your info and will add you to the next build!

Really love the art! I'm so glad someone is taking these word battle games seriously. With the right mix of characters, power ups, and monsters to battle this could be awesome! Thank you!

This is a beautiful game. However, if its only multiplayer, this is going to be a problem, since Im waiting waiting waiting waiting waiting for someone to play.
So at this time Im unable to give any actual game play impressions.
