Word Links - Decode the Clues

Word Links is a wordy brain game for 4 to 12 players where two teams compete by giving clues about secret words while the other team tries to decode those clues. This game will test the limits of even the most creative intellectuals. Word Links can be played live at parties in under 30 minutes or remotely over the course of days and weeks with remote friends, family, or strangers. To win, a player will need to be able to think outside the box to try and correlate your opposing team’s clues and also come up with extremely witty clues of your own.

Business challenge

Word Game genre is poised to expand both its share of global downloads and reach this year. Nevertheless, Word Game downloads are expected to rise by 7 percent year-over-year on the App Store and 31 percent on Google Play in 2020. Such dominant players as Codenames, Codewords, or Decrypto have already won the attention of players. The idea was to build the game that requires the player to give clues that only your teammates can decipher, but anything too obvious will quickly be decoded by the other team. LinkUp Studio’s goal was to create a robust game application, genius in its simplicity, allowing to take the word game genre to a whole new level.

Party Mafia

Party Mafia is a fun party game played on your phone with other players in the same room. The goal is to provide a fun alternative to the popular party game of Mafia. The game can be played with 5 to 20 players. One player will host the game while other players join the game via a game code. Roles are randomized and the app provides a way for users to be assigned roles, and controls the flow of the game replacing the need for a moderator.
