Notes from Our First Release

We reached an important milestone today in the development of the Plates Across America (TM) game.  With today's release, we added a very useful interactive free demo and we've completely redesigned the user interface.  Although the first "soft release" happened a few weeks back, today's release is the first one that is ready for more than just friends and family. Feel free to check it out here:

For those that might be interested in the game's history, the idea for the basic premise on the word puzzles stretches back years. This seemed novel and catchy enough that we saw potential.  Somewhere around March 2019, the word puzzle idea was combined with the travel theme and the game started to take shape.  Initial prototypes and algorithms were developed in the ensuing months, and work toward building the web-based version started in the Summer of 2019.

The web-based version is just the starting point to help us get up an going quickly so we can refine the ideas.  Once we feel it is refined enough, we will be creating mobile app versions.

If you try our game, we would love to get your feedback.
