#WordSnake

Game Information
Short Introduction: 
#WordSnake Shiritori, Antakshari or Word Chain; all variants of the ever-popular word game in which you have to come up with words that begin with the letter that the previous word ended with. In #WordSnake, you play this game in a public environment such as the train station or a pub - using Twitter! You can play with peers or strangers, as long as they are watching the same public display as you are. The game is fully twitter-powered: 1. Anybody can start a game by twittering 'start' to the display-specific hashtag - #ws123 in this occasion. Everybody can join using their mobile phone, tablet or laptop: they simply send a message with the hashtag included. [#ws123 start] 2. First, the theme selection starts: you can vote for a theme you like, or add a choice yourself - but hurry up, you only have a few seconds! [#ws123 animals] [#ws123 dinner dishes] 3. Then, the game starts! The first player to post a word is lucky, since he/she can determine both the starting and end letter. [#ws123 goat] 4. Now, another player has to come up with a word that matches both the theme and starts with the last letter of the previous word; the first one to post it earns 10 points, and continues the chain. [#ws123 turkey] 5. To conclude the game, you have to close the circle: both the word chain and the snake have to touch their tail. The last word should end with the first letter of the chain - a 'g' in our example. Connect the words and complete the Ouroboros! [#ws123 yorkshire pig]

Nephilim

The iPhone game we created for the Global Game Jam been accepted by the App Store, and is now available for purchase!

"Vile Haberdashery" is a nasty, disreputable little multiplayer game where players are cast as noble siblings vying for a great haberdashery fortune. Through blackmail, flattery, intimidation, and a little eavesdropping, you can coerce your subordinates into murdering the other would-be heirs. Can you get the doctor to kill your sister with the garden shears? Or will your brother get the stable boy to poison you with rat poison? Who will walk home with the inheritance?
