The popularity of the online puzzle game wordle shows no signs of slowing down, and as always, there could be a lot of people struggling with today’s response.
The game in which users have to guess a five-letter word and are told if they have the correct letters by means of green and yellow grids, exploded in popularity in a relatively short period of time earlier this year.
As of October 2021, the game has only 90 users. Now, after its creator Josh Wardle sold it to The New York Times Company for a seven-figure sum, an estimated 45 million unique users each month try to get the daily puzzle.
In an interview with TechCrunch, Wardle said the simple game he originally created just for his partner was the same one that tens of millions of people now play every month.
“What I have built [at the start] is the game that everyone plays today,” he said in January. “That was definitely not the intention when I started.”
Wardle himself has even admitted that he sometimes struggles to find the correct five-letter word while playing his own game.
“I feel smart when I get a wordleeven though I created the game,” Wardle said.
“It’s about the journey, especially on days like today where I’m really stumped and like having to think about it” (TechCrunch reported that the answer for that day wordle was “request”.)
“It’s hard enough for it to hit, like, that feeling of accomplishment that feels good,” Wardle added.
