When I first met Gian Cruz -- one half of developer Feel Every Yummy -- he was sitting indian style on the floor of the Moscone convention center during Game Developers Conference. He had just finished showing an early version of Feel Every Yummy's upcoming iOS/Android game, Word Fighter, to Tara Long and Max Scoville of the Destructoid show.
The easiest way to describe Word Fighter is that it's a mixture of Boggle and Puzzle Fighter. Feel Every Yummy describes it as "Street Fighter meets Words With Friends," which is just as accurate.
As Gian puts it, it's possible the Street Fighter aesthetic may skew too hardcore; it might not appeal to players who generally gravitate towards word games. It's all about finding that happy medium, he says, seeing what works best on the market without sacrificing style and gameplay. He's open to suggestions -- a conversation with Tara and Max had them all discussing everything from pretty princesses to female authors. (My money's on Stephanie Meyer to knock out J.K. Rowling in the third round, if you must know.)
