Success!
Spellirium Rocks PAX 2013
Description
Spellirium is a word puzzle / point n' click adventure game mash-up for PC and Mac. It's LOOM meets Boggle.

Use a letter grid to solve puzzles. To shear a sheep, spell words synonymous with "CUT" (TRIM, CLIP, CHOP, BUZZ, DENUDE). Dye the wool red by spelling words using only the red letter tiles. Spin the wool on a broken spinning wheel by building words in a circular motion - across, down, back, and up. Use your vocabulary to defeat an array of creatures, including a two-headed monster that can only be defeated by spelling palindromes (RADAR, EWE, KAYAK), and a big-eared creature that takes damage from onomatopoeia (CRASH, BANG, BOOM).

Explore an amazing hand-painted "trashpunk" world where everything is built out of discarded "findage" - relics dug up from the Once.

Spell Me a Story

Reading and writing are outlawed, and Todd, an apprentice Runekeeper, is one of the only literate people remaining in the ruined world. When the Runekeepers leave on an important mission and one of them turns up dead, Todd inherits a mysterious device that can impact reality when he uses it to spell words. By teaming up with a shaggy blue monster, a hardened Hunter, and an obnoxious Bard, Todd ventures out to warn the other Runekeepers. But the shocking discovery he makes about his friends and himself threatens to tear his already fragile world apart.

  • Puzzle through vocabulary-based challenges and creature battles
  • Collect the words you build in a 50000-word Dictionary
  • Spend words as currency to buy valuable spell ingredients
  • Unlock spells by completing Cheeves
  • Cast spells to convert ancient garbage into amazing powerups
  • Explore a beautiful hand-painted trashpunk world filled with colourful characters and outlandish creatures

Game looks awful. Spelling combat?

That lack of updates here and via e-mail to those of us who pre-ordered/backed the game is concerning, to say the least.

I barely remember actually pre-order/Pre-funding this game back in 2013.
What the hell is going on? Their Website doesn't even load anymore. Classy

This thing dead and they scammed us of our money I guess?

There's been little announced in a year. Untold Entertainment Inc. spawned a sister company working on real-life escape games now. Here's to hoping it's just a delay. Maybe Ryan Creighton made a game so hard the rest of the crew is still trying to work their way out of it... I could see him going all Saw on us.
