Frantic Word-Busting ‘Gnomium: Pocket Edition’ Soft Launched in Canada and New Zealand

Retrodigio’s Gnomium was initially revealed earlier this year, and it looked like quite the satisfying little word game. The title has since kind of gotten a bit of a split, with a pared-down Gnomium: Pocket Edition planned for release ahead of the bigger Gnomium game. Well, if you’re in Canada or New Zealand (or can fake it), I have good news: Gnomium: Pocket Edition has just soft launched in those territories.

Do pay attention to the tutorial and rules for the game, as the game is a bit chaotic, and might not necessarily play a lot like other word games you’ve played. But it does have a lot of fast, frantic word-matching action to plow through, with a time and limited play element. The game is set to go worldwide in early January, with the soft launch being a way for Retrodigio to get some feedback and analytics on the game going forward. I still haven’t fully made sense of how to do well at it, but it’s a lot of fun to make all those words!
