History

The process of making Sidewords began with a simple but brand new idea for a word game. We view the game like a modern newspaper word puzzle game; the kind of puzzle you do with your morning coffee every day. We consciously designed the game not to have timers and penalties, because we want players to enjoy the process of exploring the puzzles in their own time. Solving the puzzles becomes a personal and meditative process.
