What’s in a name?

A name is probably one of the most important aspects of a project. It needs to be easy to say, easy to remember, and most importantly unique enough to show up in Google searches. Easy discovery of your project is the only way it can become popular, and as such, you should remove as many barriers to discovery as possible.

As it turns out, the name I originally chose for my first game – Word Gator – was terrible for search engine optimization. A Google search for Word Gator would only reveal pages and pages of dictionary entries – not good if people are trying to find my game! Therefore, I have made the difficult decision to change the name slightly in order to improve discoverability.

From now on, Word Gator will be known as Wordy Gator! The public beta is only a few days away so stay tuned!

Introducing Word Gator!

Word Gator Logo

Here it is! The official title for my first game will be Word Gator! Word Gator is a fun twist on the classic crossword style game. I will be releasing more details as the game gets closer to beta. In the meantime, I’m excited to share a first look at the logo I created for my game! 😀

Welcome to the Blog!

I’m very glad that you’re here. This is the first in a long line of posts that will be dedicated toward announcements, code tutorials, and much, much more!

To get things started, I would like to announce the development of a brand new word game for Android and iOS! I will be releasing more details soon, but if you’re a fan of flexing your lexical muscle, then follow FreezeRay Studios on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on all the latest news.
