1GAM March – Introducing ‘Wordsmith’


With February finishing quite successfully, I came into March with some anxiety – was that a one time deal? I spent days trying to figure out what I wanted to do for March and eventually settled on taking that rapid prototype I did last year for an alphabet game (No idea what I’m talking about? check it out here). I’ve had plans to revamp and 1up the game since the coming up with it really so that’s what I’m hoping to achieve this month.

Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce ‘Wordsmith’ a game where you forge weapons using the alphabet. If you haven’t yet realised, the game was essentially built off a pun (blacksmith = wordsmith genius right? RIGHT!). The core gameplay is super simple; hit the letters in alphabetical order. I am however attempting to add another element by keeping track of speed and accuracy, and equating that to weapon quality. Throw in player XP and levelling and I hope to have a neat little ‘Brain-training’ style game that should prove helpful to all ages.


If time permits I’m also hoping to have different game modes – namely Mathemagician where, you guessed it, mathematics is the focus.

At the moment I’m happy with the prototype as it functions thus far. I am still having some teething problems with the art style at the moment but there is still plenty of time to get that sorted.
