Waggle Words Game

Waggle Words is a strategic word search game set inside a beehive. Flying letters, chains of words, and a swarming hive keep the energy high!

With three different game types, plus an augmented reality mode for supported devices, game play is always new and exciting.

Waggle Words Development

The original impetus for Waggle Words came from the youngest member of the Vermont Digital Arts family who at age 10 had the idea for a game that was a combination of the two indie games SpellTower (http://www.spelltower.com/) and Chip Chain (http://chip-chain.com/). Following this lead and inspired by two newly installed honeybee hives in the backyard, Vermont Digital Arts designed a strategic word game set inside a beehive. Much of the game’s original artwork was created by the Vermont Digital Arts younger generation making it a true family endeavor.
