It was a bit of a struggle nailing down the game play for this one. Our original idea was to integrate word play into Fat Slice, but after many prototypes which had some fatal flaw or just plain sucked, we grudgingly threw most of that concept away. Fortunately, Jeff came up with a way to use part of the mechanics from Fat Slice, but with a unique concept that actually worked as a word game. We still have the balls bouncing around a shape, but the shape itself is hidden, and the player has to guess the what it is.
Theres a few other wrinkles to it, but you can see what they are for yourself.
