Description

Spell words to fight your way through 40 stages in this addictive word game. Join Grimm and Rose on their amazing adventure through a world full of monsters and treasure!

History

Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey was conceived in March 2013 as an idea by the bandits, who thought it would be fun to make a game where the combat was handled by spelling words. After several redesigns, the bandits had a highly addictive word-puzzler on their hands! Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey started out as a game where the player spelled words to attack monsters. Then it became a roguelike for a while. It had real-time combat for quite some time. It had several different modes. Eventually the design headed towards bite-sized chunks of gameplay, which led to breaking the game up into several short stages, perfect for playing on mobile devices. The real-time combat was deemed too stressful so it became turn-based. Features were cut until only a shiny nugget of gameplay remained. The bandits had completed their first game!
