App description: Hanged merges art, narrative, and classic gameplay to create a haunting word game experience. Featuring artist Patrick Dorian's signature style in captivating stop-motion animations, this re-imagined hangman game draws the user into the tumultuous relationship of two mysterious lovers.

Uncover the secret of their sordid history and help decide their fate by piecing together their story letter by letter. Featuring beautiful, realistic water simulation, Hanged, from New York-based Freeverse, pushes the limits of art and entertainment for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Can you unravel the lovers' tale in time?

Features:
- beautiful, handcrafted stop motion animation
- amazing realistic water effects
- thousands of words to play with for endless play
- interesting and intriguing narrative revealed through game
- classic, familiar hangman in an all new style

NOTE: When the Lover's Letter ends, it moves to a built in lexicon of thousands of words so you can continue playing the traditional Hangman game. We have an update coming which makes this transition clearer. Our apologies for the confusion, we're fixing it now and it will of course be a free update.

I finally had to time to play "Hanged" today after buying it when came out last night and I'm very happy with it.
The stop motion animation is amazing (every time u pick a letter this one falls like a drop of water), the colors (black, white and red ) give this a gothic touch (Tim burton's style) and the music (piano mostly) is mesmerizing.
With every word uncovered, u have to piece together a story letter to unveil the story of the couple.
Brilliant.

Hey guys,

Hanged was done to be a combination of Programing and Art (without trying to be pretentious).

We knew we could just do standard artwork. But we wanted to fuse a very different style with some very cool fluid effects to create a different take on a very old and classic game.

You will notice the game has been designed to be very "Un-Gamey" as there is no menu, or even credits or legal text.

I've made a lot of games. You've played them.
