Hi everyone! It's been a while. I'm pleased to announce Wordvoyance is officially soft-launched in Canada for iOS!
There's been a lot going on since we last previewed the project here in 2021. First off: Wordvoyance is a crossword-building game similar to Words With Friends and Scrabble, but with added features and screen reader support to facilitate blind play. Importantly, to a sighted person the game has appealing visuals and plays exactly as you would already expect, meaning blind players can enjoy the game with their sighted friends and family.
New to this release is a native iOS app, which was a feature previously requested. You can still play on any device via the game's website, but the iOS app supports features Safari does not, including quick navigation and custom landmarks with three-finger swipes, Magic Tap to quickly confirm turns and dialog boxes, support for the Undo Gesture, and additional sounds and haptic feedback that informs you of the validity of words in play.
For our sighted friends, we've implemented Pinch to Zoom and additional haptic feedback while dragging tiles around the board.
Finally, we have decided on a monetization model we hope you'll like. It's at least... unique. Wordvoyance will remain free forever, and we will never show advertisements in the game. We hope this decision is the right one for our community, especially as we expand to support education and young families. Players on the free tier may enjoy one match at a time. Finish one, get another. For those that can afford it, we have subscription options starting at $5 a month (including a lifetime buyout option) that not only allows you to play as many matches as you want simultaneously, but makes it so the games you create against your friends don't count toward their free game limit.
To anyone in Canada, you may search for Wordvoyance in the App Store and download it there. For anyone else interested, you can still play the game via our website in Safari. There are even links to the TestFlight app on the game's main menu if you're daring.
Thank you for all of your support and critique these past years! We'll see you on the battlefield.
