We’re very sad to announce that Word² will be shutting down as of December 1, 2013. When we first launched Word² as part of the Node Knockout programming competetion 3 years ago, we had no idea how far it would grow. It’s been an amazing experience playing with everyone, and we’re thankful we’ve had the opportunity to meet so many wordcrafters since then. You’ve truly inspired us with your creativity.
The ability to purchase stars will be disabled today; the game itself will be unavailable starting 5pm PST on December 1. We’re working to make the game board dataset available for those who want to do cool things with it; we’re also hoping to make one last map of the entire world available. Keep an eye on this blog for more information.
Our customer support page will remain active to ensure a smooth transition for all players. If you have questions or need additional help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Below are a few highlights from Word². Nice job Wordcrafters! We couldn’t have done it without you.
