Eastasiasoft Announces Partnership with Puzzle Game Developer Lightwood Games

Word Sudoku by POWGI for PS4™ and PS Vita now available in Asia

For Immediate Release

Hong Kong - June 18, 2019 –
Independent developer and publisher, Eastasiasoft Limited, today announced their partnership with UK based developer Lightwood Games. Eastasiasoft will publish Lightwood Games' line-up of word games and logic puzzles for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system on the PlayStation®Store in Asia.

The first release will be Word Sudoku by POWGI, a word-twist on the classic logic puzzle game.

The core gameplay will be familiar to sudoku fans, but instead of using the digits 1 to 9, Word Sudoku is solved by placing nice different letters so that no row, column or grid section contains the same letter twice.

When completed, each puzzle will reveal a different nine-letter word, spelled across one row or column on the grid. This can act as an additional hint, if needed. Players can also switch the puzzle into "number mode" if they prefer.

Word Sudoku by POWGI is now available on the PlayStation Store in Asia for HK$63 / TW$258 / SG$10.8 / US$7.99. Cross-Buy is included so players can download the game on PS4™ and PS Vita with one purchase. Players who complete the game will be rewarded with a platinum trophy.

Further releases of Lightwood Games' popular word games and logic puzzles are planned during following two months.

Currently confirmed line-up:

  • Word Sudoku by POWGI (18 June)
  • Word Search by POWGI (25 June)
  • Pic-a-Pix Color (2 July)
  • One Word by POWGI (9 July)
  • Pic-a-Pix Classic (16 July)
