Meet the Innovators Behind Wordbase

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Wordbase twins, Rune and Andreas, are 19 years old and lives in a suburb of Copenhagen, Denmark. Their dad and longtime crossword constructor, René, came home from work one day and told that his boss had asked him if he could come up with an idea that would introduce crosswords to the digital world.

The twins came up with an idea for a new word game based on chess-like battle elements, which would challenge the player’s vocabulary and strategic skills at the same time. The fundamental idea of Wordbase was born, and the word game was subsequently showcased to their dad who went wild with joy – and so did his boss.

Built a virtual world of their school

»We love cool ideas, and ever since we can remember, we have composed music, made our own movies, developed apps, and so much more. In seventh grade, we built a virtual world of our entire school in 3D and held an online open house party where our principal walked around«, Rune and Andreas says in unison.

They still live at home, where they have their own floor loaded with computers to cultivate ideas. Highlights include a self-designed idea generator for smartphones. The goal is to come up with a new idea about anything every day – and to remember to write them down before they are forgotten!

»Our creativity is clearly due to the curiosity we’ve had since early childhood. The best ideas always seem to come when we least expect it«, Andreas says.

Taught programming and got good grades

Every time we got a crazy idea as children, our parents gave us permission and the opportunity to realise them. »We are very passionate about our ideas because we have always been supported from home«, the twins explain. Shortly after their high school exams they taught kids and teens computer programming in after school classes.

The boys have finally achieved something flashy – to design their own word game and see it come to life in the App Store on equal terms with Wordfeud, Ruzzle and Words With Friends.

»Really awesome!«

»We have many plans and ideas for the future. We are passionate about what we do and dream of being able to live solely by our ideas some day. The process with Wordbase has taught us a lot and it’s been really awesome!«, Andreas and Rune says.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_cta_button2 style=”rounded” txt_align=”center” title=”Download Wordbase” btn_style=”rounded” color=”green” size=”md” position=”bottom” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fdk%2Fapp%2Fwordbase-strategic-word-game%2Fid777638764%3Fmt%3D8|title:Download%20Wordbase%20from%20the%20App%20Store|target:%20_blank”]The battlefield awaits you and it’s time to play![/vc_cta_button2][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ images=”555,567,568″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” img_size=”150×150″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
