Hey there!

We're Alex and Jacob, the Nisnevich brothers. We're working on Wordbots, a game that we think you'll really like.

Wordbots is a customizable hex-based card game with a twist – you, the player, get to create the cards!

This makes Wordbots exciting and dynamic, as players keep coming up with new cards. Our vision is for Wordbots to herald a whole new style of game, which uses sophisticated AI to allow  intelligent communication between player and computer.

How It Works

Wordbots is powered by a semantic parser that can understand a subset of English and turn it into code.

For example, when you type in "Deal 2 damage to all enemy robots", this is what the parser sees (click to zoom):

The technology behind this parser is several years in the making, and we're excited to use it in Wordbots.

Where We're At

Wordbots is still a work in progress, but you can  play the prototype here. We are currently in alpha, and we hope to release a beta version sometime mid-2017.

Our development is (and always will be) open-source, and you can check out our code here.

We've been working on Wordbots as a passion project in our spare time for the past 6 months. But we can't do it alone!

Every donation we get will help us hire contractors for the things that we can't do ourselves, like art, sound, animations, and so on. As well as motivate us to keep going!

Thanks for checking it out and considering supporting us.

With $200 a month, we'll be able to hire freelancers to occasionally help us with graphic design, audio, and animations.
