Game Information

Short Introduction: 
Word Loops is a game where you create loops of words that are linked by common first and last letters. Each loop has a requirement you must meet before you are able to close it. See how many you can finish before the time runs out!
Platform/System: 
Web standard (Html5, Java, JavaScript, Flash)
Brief Play Description: 

You will see a letter in the middle of the screen. That is your starting letter. Type a valid English word that begins with that letter and hit ENTER. You must then type another word that begins with the last letter of your first word, growing the word loop. To close the loop, you must type a word that both begins with the last letter of the previous word AND ends with the starting letter of the loop.

Before you can close a loop, however, you must satisfy the requirements listed at the bottom of the screen. Examples include [type exactly 3 more 'T's] or [delete at least 2 more words]. Once that requirement is met, you'll be prompted to close the loop.

Close as many loops as you can in the time limit!

Hello, I've been checking out random GGJ games

Hello, I've been checking out random GGJ games and this one is a pretty clever little idea. Not a lot to add to that, but it's a nice little word game.

Long Live The Eternal Cycle!

Heh, I think knivel's animation is the best thing that has come out of this game jam by far! :D Sublimely profound and awesome. We should put it on YouTube or something. ;)

Well, Word Loops is done. *whew* My first Global Game Jam! May there be many more to come.

Nice job, team! :)

Idle Artist Hands

Our game concept is pretty light on art requirements, so I felt justified taking a little time to whip up a silly ourosboros animation:
