Linkup Studio has become a partner in digital design and development in creating the innovative application "Word Links." Over a span of 1 year and 4 months, we developed a captivating mobile app designed for word game enthusiasts. "Word Links" is a multiplayer game for 4 to 12 players, where participants are split into two teams. Teams engage in a thrilling challenge of giving and deciphering clues about secret words. The game is versatile and perfect for live parties, online gatherings, or remote play with friends, family, or strangers. Its user-friendly interface, combined with features like simultaneous multiple games, joining public games, and receiving fun notifications, sets a new standard in the word game industry.
Since its launch, "Word Links" has achieved significant milestones, including over 1,000 downloads on Google Play and an impressive 4.8 user rating on the App Store.
