Incoming patch

So theres a patch for Puzzwords in review right now, I estimate if things go well then it should be available on LIVE (just re-download the game to get it) in a couple days! Hopefully it is bug free and doesnt fail the process, but there have been no reports of bugs yet.

In the meantime there is a site called www.XboxIndies.com that lets users rate, and comment on games! Here is a link to the Puzzwords page- http://www.xboxindies.com/game/puzzwords.

There are two comments so far:

This game has a rather neat feel to it however some times it seems to be too easy to create words. Maybe that is a good thing tho :)

I think this is the best word puzzle game on the service yet (though Wordzy and Word Soup are also fun).

If you feel like it, leave a comment or rate the game :)

Next project coming out is a simple app that doesn't yet exist on the service. It's been ready for a while but crafty bugs have delayed its release by a number of weeks. Its in review again and hopefully everything is all ironed out this time! I'll post more details when its farther down the review process :)
