The Creators of Wordbase

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Who: Rune & Andreas a.k.a. “the Twins”. Creativity and innovation must be part of their DNA, as they’re always working on something, they can’t help but improve Wordbase. What: The twins invented the word game and joined forces with the well-established media company Aller Media, to bring about a completely new way of playing word games.

You’ve seen them excel at Wordbase live in the promotional video for the word game and they’ve helped you out through support, when the game has caused you trouble. Besides looks, the twins and Wordbase creators have got a genuine concern for the good user experience in common, as well as the wish for a word game that sweeps the other competitors off the board.

Can “creativity” and “curiosity” be part of your job description?

Once the initial idea of “the game-to-be” had settled in their minds, they went on with the development of the requirement specifications, describing the main concept and shaping ideas of what the word game would later become.

In the initial stages of development, the twins were also responsible for building the first real prototype of the game interface. A large part of this work involved envisaging how the actual game would work: how to place the individual players, which actions would be allowed and how to show progress to the other player. In short: How to play the game, and simultaneously, the future request began to prosper.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

We are driven by user feedback

As the game has evolved, so has their responsibility. They’re still innovators of the word game’s evolution, but large parts of their day consist of customer support and testing, something, they love doing!

“Customer support is an exciting job, because you initiate a close dialogue with the users of Wordbase. You learn so much more about the game through this dialogue, than you ever would by yourself. Their experience of the game is so completely different and spot on, than my own experience, after developing it for two years.” – Rune

The best thing about Wordbase is…

It’s simple complexity! The more you play the game, the quicker you realize there’s more to it. With Wordbase, we’ve managed to combine strategy with words in a simple, yet elegant way. It’s a joy watching the games unfold. Turn after turn, the word chains are increasing, while the battle moves back and forth across the middle. The possibilities are endless!

“Wordbase is a game, which is easy to learn, but difficult to master!” – Andreas

Your funniest experience with Wordbase:

Both agree filming the commercial for the word game (“Wordbase – Strategic Word Game”) was one of their funniest experiences with Wordbase, but for different reasons.

While Andreas emphasize the event because it explained so well, what Wordbase is all about, in a humorous, yet direct way. Rune accentuates the relaxed atmosphere, the high spirit and his odd encounter with hot hair gel, which was needed to simulate his burning hair in the commercial. It took several days, to get it back to normal, he notes ;).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video src=”“//“” width=”“560“” height=”“315“” frameborder=”“0“” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
