Hello ‘Tangenters,

Get a WildTangent exclusive sneak peek at WildTangent Studios’ newest game – Word Science! (You’ll have to get to the bottom of the blog post to see a super secret pre-release screenshot.)

It launches tomorrow – January 9th, 2014 – on iTunes, WildTangent, Kindle Fire and Google Play.

And, here’s the story of how it came to be!

The game all started months ago with Dan (the developer) and a very simple prototype that everyone at the Studio thought had a lot of potential.

Here’s a screenshot of that very prototype – it’s a rough version that doesn’t have any art.

With a fast-paced mechanic that included letters flying across the screen and required speedy fingers to spell with them, Word Science stuck in the collective Studio brain. After 6-8 weeks, they had a demo (which is a bit more polished and playable than a prototype) and that demo proved that this experiment was just too fun to pass up.

Meet our initial Word Science scientist character, Victor.

And, here’s the latest incarnation of our scientist, Vicki!

And, now… after many, many tweaks and iterations and tests?

NOW it’s ALIIIIIIVE! (Well, it will be tomorrow, anyway.)

Psst! Check out the top-secret screenshot of the end product! Big difference, huh?

Will you help the mad scientist, Professor Von Vocab power a crazy laboratory with your words?

Let us know if you have any questions about the new game in the comments!

Happy Spelling!

        P.S. You’ll be able to play this one on your iPad, Spock. And, it’s fuuuun. I’m a total word nerd and I love it.

    I might have to try it … after the WT forum closes … :(

    I spent most of yesterday and all day today working on transferring a single topic and I’m still not finished!

      Wow! It’s so cool that you’re archiving all that information, though.
