The Big Reveal… Gridwordz
For the past year we’ve been working on a secret game project called Gridwordz. I am pleased to announce that we have just released the game on iOS and Android.
Like a fine wine, some of the best tech products are years in the making. Gridwordz is both frustrating and addictive – but don’t take our word for it, check out the consistent 5 star reviews on the App Store. But part of its real charm – for us at Matmi, at least – is the backstory and how it ended up with us developing it.
The game was originally created by a computer programmer, Herbert Jandyce, back in the 1970’s. He and a close circle of friends played it regularly for a few decades. But it was only a couple of years ago, at an age when most would be contemplating retirement, that he decided that it might be fun to see if a modern creative programmer could re-imagine his game as an App. That’s when Herbert approached Matmi, and the rest, as they say, is history.
