We’re so excited to support our beloved faculty member, Tim Szetela, in his Kickstarter campaign. Tim is on the team that’s working hard to bring us the word game ‘Rewordable.’
What is Rewordable? Rewordable is a uniquely fragmented word game. The 120 card deck of one, two, and three letter sequences has been carefully crafted through language analysis techniques to encourage the creation of longer, more common words.
From the press release:
Rewordable initially was created in a master’s course at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunication Program (ITP). In May 2016, it was selected as the first non-digital game at the NYU Game Center Incubator. The purpose of the NYU Game Center Incubator is to bridge experimental work with the realities of the marketplace, giving promising games time, space, guidance, and resources to maximize opportunities for commercial success. Thanks to the Incubator, the Rewordable team had the opportunity to develop the game further and bring it closer to publication.
The next step for Rewordable is to get it into the hands of as many people as possible – to everyone that loves word games and to everyone that hates word games (but might just love Rewordable). To help with that, on September 21, 2016, a Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund the game’s initial print run.
