    “Just a Phrase” – This Hangman-liked Pun-Oriented Wordplay Game is Now Available on PS4, Vita, and Switch.

    Lightwood Games has announced the release of its latest word puzzle game, Just a Phrase by POWGI.

    The game is already available on the PlayStation Store for PS4 and PS Vita and will launch on the Nintendo eShop for Switch later today.

    Just a Phrase is a deduction game based on the classic pen-and-paper game, hangman, but this variation has a twist inspired by the pun-oriented wordplay that is typically found in the POWGI series of games.

    One word in each phrase has been changed to a homophone – a word that sounds the same but is spelled differently. For example, when the phrase “right on the money” becomes “write on the money”, it takes on a totally new meaning.

    While the phrase will still sound familiar when read aloud, this simple change makes it much more challenging to deduce when choosing only one letter at a time.

    The puzzles usually produce a moment of revelation, when you solve a phrase by revealing both something familiar, and something unexpected!

    Phrases range from the surreal (like ”making both ends meat”) to those that invite you to imagine the setup for the punchline to a terrible dad joke (like “holy owned subsidiary”).
