Word Ace: Coming Soon

We'd been keeping it a secret, but it looks like the cat is out of the bag.

More information will probably land tomorrow, in the form of a press-release-type thing. But this is what we've been working on for the last few months, while also getting the Taxiball updates out. Totally different than Taxiball, as you can tell. Will post more info when I can!

Cheers!

I read the blog, and while I am not sure all of what the guy was talking about, I'm sure that the game is gonna be great!

I'll be looking out for it. Hopefully will have a vid of game play? (hint, hint) seems that more and more people are wanting to see how games are played prior to getting them.

What you are talking about. I have no idea.

But I trust you guys. Taxiball is awesome, and if Penny Arcade are already writing about it (whatever it is -- sounds like some Starcraft type shi...stuff) then it must be even more awesome...er. And if it has to do with words and stuff then I'm all for it, 'cos I'm all wordy 'n stuff.

We'll definitely be putting up a video. Looks like the first batch of screenshots goes out tomorrow, so I'll throw 'em up here, as well. We'll have a video by the end of the week, for sure.

Haha. Oops. Didn't realize it had linked to the comic. Check the newspost instead (I fixed the above link). Should give you a better idea of what the game's about...

Ah-ha! That is much more illuminating. So ... Texas Hold 'em but with letters for cards and a requirement to spell words. It sounds ... inscrutable. But then I've never herd of Quiddler either, so the concept is foreign to me. However, I'm thinking some sort of highest scoring word winds the hand or something.

I am intrigued.

Word Ace is OUT NOW on the Palm Pre! While that may not be all that interesting to most of the people here... it will be soon!
