October Meeting: Waggle Words – Launching the World’s 1st AR Word Game

Join us on Wednesday, October 18th at 7pm in Intrepid Labs, in The American Twine Building (222 Third St. Cambridge, MA 02141 4th floor) for our next Boston Post Mortem meeting: Waggle Words – Launching the World’s 1st AR Word Game

After three+ years of development, Vermont Digital Arts (VTDA) just launched Waggle Words, the world’s 1st Augmented Reality word game on the App Store. Although Waggle Words ranked at #6 for paid word games on the App store the week of launch, day one did not go so well.

Elliott Mitchell, co-founder of Vermont Digital Arts, will trace the trajectory of Waggle Words from it’s origins, various branching platforms, App Store launch and future platform releases. Elliott will discuss VTDA’s methodology of design, development, and decision making processes as they relate to Waggle Words. Elliott will also share some lessons learned launching a premium game on the Apps Store in the age of Free To Play games.
