World's Biggest Wordsearch searches for world's biggest fans!

LONDON - February 26, 2013 - AppyNation and Supersonic Software (developers of much-loved classic video games Micro Machines 2, Micro Machines V4 and Mashed) are pleased to announce World’s Biggest Wordsearch, an amazing new puzzle game for PC, smartphones and tablets– and how you can be a part of the this exciting World Record attempt through Kickstarter.

Pete Williamson (Supersonic’s MD) explains:“We’re trying to set a new world record for the biggest wordsearch in existence by publishing this superbly polished piece of puzzle fun both as a GIANT POSTER (1189 x 841 mm) and on PC, iOS, Android and the Amazon Appstore... but to realise our ambition we need some help to raise funds for development.”

“We’re offering the gorgeous printed poster versions of the puzzle itself to backers– and it’s those very backers who’ll be helping us raise the money to create the video game version of this epic puzzle. We’ll be offering copies of the game on PC, credits in the game, limited edition signed prints of the puzzle, and even the chance to immortalise your name inside the puzzle as rewards for backing the project. That’s right– YOU, your friends and family, or even your classmates or colleagues can be an integral part of a world record!”

More information about the game and your chance to pledge towards the Kickstarter can be found here:


About World’s Biggest Wordsearch

We’re producing a perfectly plump puzzle, packed with over 5,750 wickedly withheld words, all of them tied to over 350 themes, lovingly laced through a latticework of over 60,000 letters. The puzzle is hand-crafted with carefully thought-out themes, and of course - wads of wonderful words. We’ve hidden a Secret Message and 45 specially designated‘Trophy’ words too.

Our convoluted calculations conclude it’ll take a committed Word Search puzzler over 40 hours to complete this world beating puzzle– as such we’re applying to the Guinness Book of World Records and are confident of a rapturous response. We’re aiming to produce the puzzle as a digital game on PC, iOS and Android. We’re also making a massive A0-size poster of the puzzle. Hang it on your wall and solve it over a few weeks or months!
