We’ve got some big news to share with you today. Use Your Words started out as a modest crowdfunded indie project, but we were always aiming to make a game with mass market appeal. To that end, we are thrilled to announce that we’ve teamed up with Screenwave Media as our official publishing partner.
For years, Screenwave has given creators the tools to succeed on multiple publishing platforms, and we’re happy to get the chance to collaborate with them in marketing and releasing Use Your Words.
We believe that with Use Your Words we are creating a uniquely fun experience that anyone can enjoy, and our friends at Screenwave Media also believe that.
Having worked on this project since early 2015 we’re eager to get it out and into your hands. Our prototype and alpha versions have gotten big laughs from players all over the world, but the beta needs additional time for polish, balancing, and quality testing.
After coming this far, we’d rather release a superior product than a rushed one. And while we are making very exciting plans with our new partner Screenwave, those plans will also take time to prepare.
So we’re announcing today that the official release window for Use Your Words is the end of Q1 2017. We’ve worked hard to make a great beta and now it’s time to put the finishing touches on it and give it a proper release. Kickstarter backers will receive a Steam key for the game before it is released to the public, and backers who pre-ordered it for other platforms will receive download keys for those platforms in the order specified on previous Kickstarter communications.
Thank you for being patient with us while we take additional time. When Use Your Words is released next year, we guarantee it will be worth the wait.
