Reviews for "Letter Quest"

Needs to show all the words you could have possibly made after each scrabble. If it already has this feature, great.

This is a great concept and I like it a lot. I voted for it on Steam Greenlight (how much will it cost?) and I have some feedback. The dictionary seemed pretty expansive-- often I was able to create words I didn't know existed-- but I typed in "yid" (which I guess could be offensive) and it was not accepted. Was this word left off on purpose? The word "porn" was accepted...

For thenoodge, maoi is not a word, however moai (mo'ai) is.

I think that the idea of an endless mode would be interesting, being entirely randomized with bosses making appearances, chests, merchants, etc. There would be rewards the further in you make it.
A time attack would also be possible, with you getting time for beating enemies and whatnot.

I was able to type "Miyagi," but nothing happened. I don't know what I was expecting.

Thank you for the detailed review, and thank you for voting on Greenlight! The game is currently available at www.letterquestgame.com in early access for $7.99, and we're still deciding on a final price for Steam.

"yid" was intentionally left off due to it being considered slang and offensive to some people. There are several hundred (some pretty obscure!) racial slang words we left out intentionally. "porn" was left in because it's not an offensive term, we view it the same as words like "sex", "testicle", etc. - they are real words that should hopefully not offend anyone. We also left out all known swear words.

Maoi is not really a word, it's an acronym for monoamine oxidase inhibitors, but I added it to the game's dictionary anyway. :)

Great ideas for the endless mode, it's something we're looking into, just trying to find the time (our company is just two people!).

As for "miyagi", I may add that as a bit of an easter egg. I already added the names of lots of Game of Thrones characters, and some other pop culture references just for fun.

EDIT: decided "miyagi" was too good to pass up, so added it to the dictionary. It will be in a future update. Here's proof! ;)

This game is amazing enough. And unlike some Scrabble-like games, this one shows the definition of each. This really makes learning/using the brain fun! I would only ask that, though some of the words are hard and long, you "dumb down" some of the definitions, it could turn this into an educational game, though i don't know what you were going for in general.

Good game
would spell more.

baconbanditgames responds:

We have been trying to shorten some of the definitions - there are over 160,000 of them so it's a bit of a process! But that's a great suggestion, thank you for it! :)

As for what we're going for - we tried our best to make a fun, addictive game that anyone can enjoy. If people can learn something while playing, that's just a bonus!

A few words didn't get accepted (Bengal(i), maoi and Luddite), but that's to be expected.

Other than that, it's a fun and VERY addicting game.

baconbanditgames responds:

Developer here! Thanks for letting us know - we're constantly adding to the game's dictionary. I just added all of the words you mentioned, and definitions for them, and uploaded a new version of the game with them in the dictionary! Cheers! :)

I love the art in this game!!
