WORDLE SUBSCRIPTION – TBA
As recently as a few days ago, the hit word game Wordle was sold to the New York Times. And rumour has it that it may not be free to play in the near future…. The New York Times state that Wordle will, “initially remain free for existing players’’. However, the company already provide games including Spelling Bee, Letter Boxed, Tiles and Vertex – all of which are behind a paywall.
The Wordle craze has created a lot of creative opportunities for brands to jump on because it creates a simple, yet effective visual that all users recognise. This is a great opportunity for brands from the tech or education industries to comment on the news and perhaps even offer their own spin on the Wordle of the day.
