ABOUT

Gubbins is a friendly puzzle game where you place tiles to construct words, with the help and hindrance from weird little pals called Gubbins. Minimalist typography alongside mischievous cartoons serve as a kooky canvas for moreish wordplay. It’s essentially Solitaire meets Scrabble with hilarious friends wreaking havoc.

PLATFORMS & RELEASE

iOS first
Slated for 2023 release


LOGOS & IMAGERY

FEATURES

  • Find, collect, and master 25 Gubbins on launch all with unique gameplay functions, and even more beyond!

    Master systemic wordplay in a roguelite environment, the math indicates that it would be a statistic improbability for any game to ever the same! (has anyone even made a roguelike word game before?!)

    Make the words you want to make, rather than merely detecting them, with our unique and innovative “letters are stuck together” tile system (name of system TBD).

    Share your most impressive (or silly) words in custom built postcards.

    Strive for a high score, and provoke unsuspecting friends & colleagues into reluctant competition.

    Play on a tram, with a baby in your arm, or with a cuppa tea on a sleepy Sunday morning (one-handing is encouraged).
