For those who have yet to investigate it, Wordle is a daily electronic riddle game which tasks players with guessing what the secret word is in six tries. It sounds pretty simplistic, and it is, which is probably why it's not just massively popular, with the New York Times purchasing the game, yet it's inspired many Wordle clones that play around with the format. Of course, the computer game local area is not one to pass up the chance to take the concept and create their own version of it, which is the reason one Minecraft user has reimagined Josh Wardle's riddle sensation in the blocky world.
Uploading a concise clasp to Reddit a couple of days ago, user urgle_gurgle has managed to assemble their own Wordle-style game within Minecraft, which they call "Word Hunt", complete with a completely functioning QWERTY keyboard, and all done in the vanilla version, so no mods. The top post in the thread also describes how they managed to code the "most perplexing features," describing making the daily word the same for each player, and getting around not being able to store the dictionary in the game. On top of that, a link has been accommodated anyone who wishes to play it for themselves.
Despite the fact that it's still something of a phenomenon, Wordle's popularity does seem to have declined as of late, particularly since its acquisition by the New York Times back in January. Nonetheless, it's still going strong, with many players around the world challenging themselves each day. The fact that there are fans out there willing to repurpose it for the computer game local area shows that the word game itself is still making waves, especially given the number of variations of it there at present are.
This is also not the first time the word game been adapted to the Mojang-made IP. Last month, another user managed to recreate Wordle in Minecraft using redstone. While this latest iteration looks more similar to the original source material that inspired it, this redstone equivalent is still impressive, capitalizing on the electronic game's popularity.
With Minecraft fans creating many useful things using redstone, as well as the enormous builds that players task themselves with making, the open-world sandbox title is still a force to be reckoned with. What fans like urgle_gurgle show is that there is an enormous, almost endless amount of potential to be had, and while it's possible that Wordle may leave the spotlight sooner rather than later, Minecraft's star only seems to shine more splendid.
