In a true 'David and Goliath' fairytale, games inventor John Chambers approached Sussex, UK based software developer Fat Fish Games™ to digitally recreate and re-imagine his word-making board game Qb® (its original title) for mobile devices and Facebook.
Word Links' exclusive feature of making words with two-letter cube pieces to score huge multi-word plays rather than single-lettered tiles is a revolutionary new twist, enabling super easy word creation for beginners, yet a challenge to master for expert wordsmiths.
“I developed the two-letter feature during many years of research, calculating which combinations enabled the best word creations. I'm delighted that my word game has now been brought to life for wordy gamers to enjoy, across multiple platforms," says 65 year-old Chambers, who has previously appeared on the popular BBC TV show Dragons’ Den with his game ideas.
“Word Links has been a remarkable achievement for Fat Fish Games™. Versions for three platforms have been developed in just over 3 months, with a small five-man team. This is in stark contrast to developers of leading Word Games such as Words with Friends, whose resources comparatively dwarf that of our own,” reflects Fat Fish Games Director, Jonasson Lochner.
Heading up the Word Links development team is veteran console games developer Chris Pacey, having previously led teams on titles such as Sony's award-winning 'Buzz!' quiz game, who comments, "Building a cross-platform, online word game presents huge challenges, but we're extremely proud of what we've accomplished, and excited to finally launch."
