How can you go from a word like ‘Morbid’ to a word like ‘ecstatic’? Or from ‘fastidious’ to ‘vigil’?
Synonymy is a game of finding the paths between random words through their network of synonyms. By taking the synonym of a word, and then a synonym of that synonym, and so on, you can ultimately arrive at any other word in the English Language. (more languages to come!)

The game supports multiplayer, and weekly challenges in which users can compete globally on set start and end words. Every time a path is uncovered by a user, it is tweeted from @synonymygame and posted to our Facebook page.
Synonymy is the first game by filmmaker Christopher Cinq-Mars Jarvis and is narrated by world-renowned author and biologist, Richard Dawkins.
The game is available for several other platforms including OSX, Windows and iOS.
** Works best using iPhone 5/iPad 2 or later and iOS8. The game seems to work on older devices but performance might suffer. Please address any concerns to www.synonymy-game.com/#contact
