Wordament on Windows 8, play it today

This morning Microsoft unveiled the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 to the world.  We have been looking forward to this day for a long time as it now means you can play Wordament on Windows 8, as well as on your Windows Phone 7.  That’s right, Windows Phone and Windows 8 machines can battle it out in the same room.  Once you have the Consumer Preview build setup, head to the Store where you can install Wordament.  Here is a little video we made which shows the process.

 

You can download the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 here

Once you have it installed you’ll want to try out Snap.  We are becoming very fond of playing Wordament in this mode.  It really shows off the power of the Windows 8 design which allows you to do more than one thing at once.

Snap

This is a beta version of Wordament running on a prerelease version of Windows.  In practice it has been very stable, but it’s possible you will run into some glitches.  As always we would love to hear about your experiences, good and bad.  Drop us a line at wordament@live.com.

Thanks for playing.  Good luck!

    Woohoo! The only issue I’ve encountered is when the app is resumed after being suspended. When suspended, it loses connection to the game (by design I’m sure), but then it just hangs when trying to reconnect, if the current game had ended while it was suspended.

      Hi Jordan,

      Thanks for the note. This release on Windows 8 does not have full support for network connection loss. It’s on our feature list. In this case, we recommend closing the app and restarting.

    For some reason I can’t download. I click on Install and it hangs…

    Really nice!
    Just installed Windows 8 beta and tried Wordament.
    A bit tricky to play with a mouse but it works.

    I’m experiencing a pretty serious bug, where the timer shows 30 minutes per game! It starts at 32 minutes and the games completes at 30.
