WBWS - softly launched!

Posted by Supersonic Software Ltd. (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!

Just a quick note to let you know that we've soft launched World's Biggest Wordsearch in Australia and New Zealand on iOS!

What is a soft launch, you ask?

It's where you limit the launch of a game to certain countries so that you can properly prepare for the worldwide launch.

We've released it in those two territories alone so that we can make sure everything is working. That means that we'll wait a week or two, with a few hundred people playing it, and be able to fix any bugs that crop up, or tweak any settings that are annoying for players, before launching it worldwide.

Ideally it'll only take a fortnight, but it's a really important step - we can't wait to get it in your hands!

If you're reading this in Australia or New Zealand, just follow this link to have a play of the full game!

Thanks,

The Supersonic Team.

Game submitted to Apple!

Hello Kickstarters!

Just a quick update to let you know that we've submitted World's Biggest Wordsearch to the Appstore, and that means that (assuming we pass) we'll have a launch date to announce soon!

We're so excited to see the game coming out regardless of the missed target here on Kickstarter - we're confident the game is great fun and a lot of people will enjoy playing it so it means a lot that we're able to get it into your hands soon.

In the meantime, why not follow our twitter feed or facebook page for more regular updates, and thank you again for all your support.

Cheers,

The Supersonic Team

Silver linings!

Hello Kickstarters!

As you probably know by now, we didn't make our target. It's been a really fun ride, but sadly we just didn't see the kind of engagement we were hoping for...

...no doubt some people will tell us 'we told you so' but we felt Kickstarting this project was an important thing to do. We've all learned a lot, and we've made a lot of new friends and fans along the way too.

As such, we want to say thank you to everyone for all of your help. Your tweets, emails, Facebook likes and of course pledges were all hugely important to us, and still are. Funnily enough, in this instance, we don't feel that mere words are enough to convey our gratitude.

That's why we're going to give every single person you backed us - at any level - a free copy of The World's Biggest Wordsearch on PC when it is released.

We hope that goes some small way to expressing how much it meant to us that you got involved.

Until next time!

Hugs & kisses,

- The Supersonic Team

Over 50% raised! New Reward Tier!

Posted by Supersonic Software Ltd. (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!

Partly to celebrate breaking the halfway mark on our goal yesterday, and partly because we want to offer something a bit different, we've modified our rewards!

We've got rid of the £150 tier, and are now offering much the same stuff for merely £50! Read on to find out more... it'll be of extra interest if you've plumped for the £20 tier, as you'll see...

For £50/Approx $80 fifteen of you lucky lot gets to be a Puzzle Maker!

What do you get?

We’ve set aside an area of the grid for you to make your own themed section! Come up with a theme - and provide up to 20 words - and we’ll incorporate them into the grid. We’ll help and advise on word choice, but something like your family, or favourite foods, or maybe even the best games you've ever played would work! Of course you also get to choose the title of this personalised area of the grid.

Of course we can't just put any old words in... especially not rude ones. Note that as all words in the puzzle have to be unique we may have to ask you to choose some alternatives. We reserve the right to veto any choices, but we’ll work hard to ensure your choices are as you want them.

If you'd like us to, we’ll also include your photo next to your name in the credits section of the puzzle - so you can prove it's you to all your mates!

But there's more!

Once that's done, you can find yourself on the massive (A0! That's 1.2m x 0.8m or 47" x 33") poster of the puzzle and the digital copy of the PC version of the game which we'll send you. That's it below. It's HUGE.

We’ll also email you when the mobile & tablet versions go live (on iPhone, iPad and Android) so you can download and play those too!

So what are you waiting for?

Go pledge, or nudge a friend who you know will enjoy this!

Let's get this over the goal!

New reward tier - IMMORTALITY at a low low price!

Posted by Supersonic Software Ltd. (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!

We've been wracking our brains for a way to make this project even more appealing - and we've decided the best way to do this would be to offer a really cool reward at a low price.

So, let us introduce you to our brand new £5/$8 tier - Immortality!

We’ll put your name (max 13 characters) into the World's Biggest Wordsearch puzzle and ALL versions of the game. You’ll forever be immortalized as a contributor to a World Record, we’ll send you a PDF of the finished puzzle poster and we’ll tell you when the iOS and Android versions go live so you can play those too! Awesome, right?!

You'll be able to play the game, find your name, and tell your friends about your awesome World Record.

We reckon that if you're sitting at the £1 tier right now, you might suddenly be thinking about upgrading... and rightly so! But there's currently only space for 500 names, so be quick!

Of course it doesn't have to be your name - you could buy this for your friends or loved ones and help more people get involved in this great project.

All the hugs,

- The Supersonic Team
