Word Nerds Unite – Spellirium
Except for that one time in kindergarten when I told you that caterpillars were nature’s candy, have I ever steered you wrong? And last year, didn’t I drive you to that caterpillar rehab clinic on a Saturday instead of going to the movies like I wanted? Well, here’s your chance to finally pay me back.
Step One: Go here.
Step Two: Buy a copy of this game.
Step Three: Bask in the warm glow that you get when doing stuff you saw on the Internet and not having the cops show up.
As you’ve probably figured out by now, I really want to play the finished version of this thing. Adventure? Check. Word-based gameplay? Check. Sheep-shearing? Double-check. And when I found out that HOW you spell words is one of the puzzle elements? Well, let’s just say that I would rather have this game than a kilo of the finest Monarch caterpillars that money can buy.
It’s going to be finished no matter how many people pre-order, but the more that do, the faster I can get my hands on it. On the off chance that helping me with my crippling patience deficiency isn’t motivation enough, take a look at this video. That should do the trick.
