Word Definitions in Desktop Version!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted! I’ve been incredibly busy working on the desktop version of Letter Quest!

I’m excited to announce that I’ve managed to get the definitions of about 150,000 of our 180,000 words into the game! This is a feature that we’ve wanted to add since the beginning, and it really takes the game from just a fun word game, to one that can actually teach you a little bit as you play!

As you can see in the screenshots (which include some VERY placeholder UI, it will be much prettier soon, we promise!), the last word that you spelled will be shown along with its definition in the panel at the bottom-left. Also, as you spell words, if a valid word is spelled, there will be a little question mark button you can push that will instantly bring up the definition of the word you’re currently spelling.

We’re trying very hard to see if it’s possible to cram all of this information into the mobile version, but for now this is a desktop-only feature. We’re doing everything we can to make it work on mobile too, but it’s a challenging problem to figure out! As usual, the bandits will try to work their bacon-infused magic to make it happen! 🙂

Here’s some screenshots showing off this sweet feature!

If you like what you see, consider voting for Letter Quest on Steam Greenlight, it would really help us out!

Have a great weekend everyone!
