Sixty Words by POWGI

Sixty Words by POWGI out on Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox this week

Lightwood Games was thrilled to announce details of their latest word game, Sixty Words by POWGI. It’s a much-requested (and slightly larger) follow-up to 2019’s Fifty Words by POWGI. This is a unique type of word search puzzle: there’s no grid, no wrong letters and no list of words to find. Each puzzle just contains 60 intertwined words, connected by a theme. As players discover the words, they paint them with a rainbow of vibrant highlights to create a unique, often stunning, result. Sixty Words by POWGI is less challenging than many of our word puzzles, designed to aid mindfulness and spark creativity, through a relaxing experience of word exploration in a sea of color. Some puzzles are shaped and some simply sprawl, but the end result each time is a piece of color-blended art, created individually by the player. The Sixty Words by POWGI game will be released on […]
