You’ve probably noticed all the yellow/green/gray boxes flooded your Facebook and Twitter feed recently. It’s called Wordle. The new puzzle gam everyone is either obsessed with or super annoyed by. No matter how you feel about the actual game the story behind it is pretty interesting.
Wordle is a website that the daily word-guessing game lives on. It was created by a British site called Power Language. There has been a little confusion though, because there is also an app in the app store with the same name. So now this old app that’s also called Wordle has gotten TONS of downloads in just a week. About 200,000.
It’s a completely different thing and has nothing to do with the game everyone is playing. But the guy who owns that old app has decided it feels wrong to profit off people’s mistake, so he said he will be donating all the money that’s coming in! It’s been about $2,000 so far and just keeps getting higher every day.
At the end of the month he will reveal the total and donated all to charity.
p.s. I crushed today’s game… just sayin’
