DUNDEE, SCOTLAND – April 19, 2022 – Outplay Entertainment, the largest independent mobile game developer in the UK, has announced a new game as part of its return to the development of socially-led games for the Facebook Instant Gaming platform. The brand-new title, Words Together, is out now.

 

Words Together allows friends to play against each other in a classic word-building game format, implementing socially led mechanics through integration with Facebook’s social platform. Up against the clock, players complete a round where they need to score as many points as possible on the board with the letters provided. Once players have set their score, they will share and challenge their friends to try and beat their score using the same board. The ultimate winner will be decided over three rounds, with winners receiving trophies in their triumph. As players win matches, they will assemble more trophies, adding to their total on a shared leaderboard.

 

Words Together is fully integrated with Facebook and players can directly challenge friends in Facebook Messenger or start a personalised tournament with a one click post to their newsfeed for friends to play against each other. It follows the release of Solitaire Together, which launched earlier this year.

 

Douglas Hare, CEO of Outplay Entertainment, said: “We’re delighted to announce the second title in our return to making games for Facebook with the launch of Words Together. This platform continues to be a great way for us to begin developing more social-based, multiplayer titles for our players.”

 

Outplay Entertainment is the studio behind the acclaimed title Gordon Ramsay’s Chef Blast, which features the Culinary Genius™ himself. The studio is also the creator of Mystery Match Village, which is currently enjoying an Agatha Christie Death on the Nile season pass update.
