Oh, vielen lieben Dank!

P.S. Schaue schon seit Jahren immer wieder gerne auf deinem YouTube-Kanal vorbei! :)

Agreed. I've primarily been calling it an arcade puzzler, though it does share a fair bit of roguelike characteristics (permadeath, grid-based, turn-based, random generation).

Love it <3

Vielen lieben Dank! :D

Thank you so much! So glad you enjoy the game! :)

Thank you so much! <3

Thank you so much, glad you enjoyed it! :)

It's true that some guesses can be quite easy given the context (someone talking film is probably an actor or director etc.). I didn't want to restrict the RNG much though in favor of maximum variation in the long term.

Did you see the difficulty modes in the top left (you can change them before your first guess) by the way? The hardest one doesn't allow a single mistake.

Get a quote each round and guess who said it from a selection of three (more or less) famous personalities!

Try to make 10 correct guesses before running out of lives to become the Quote GOAT!


  • 🗣️ Celebrity taunts: Ever wanted to get an "Impeccable!" from Albert Einstein or a "Not impressed..." from Kanye West? Now you can!
  • ♾️ Endless variety: With more than 75,000 quotes randomly picked from, you'll never get the same run twice!
  • 📅 Daily run mode: You have the option to play a run that is the same for all players each day. Try to beat your friends' scores!
  • 👪 Difficulty levels: Choose to only lose half a life per wrong guess, or play "true permadeath mode" and lose the whole run instantly!
  • 📊 Statistics: The game records how many 10-win runs you had and all your recent results!
  • 🌐 Play anywhere: Play the game right in your browser (even on mobile) or download the client. Note that the game requires an internet connection to retrieve the  author data from Wikidata.

Hey, thank you so much, that comment made my day! Pretty impressive score too! :)

Oh wow, thank you so much for playing and the kind words! :)

My favorite Playdate game so far! Reminded me of Unicycle Hero, but the physics feel more polished and it's just so much fun playing it with the crank and being able to go faster or slower based on the situation. Superb! :)

Yup, verbose is off. If it's not too much of a hassle to implement, a speed-up  certainly would be awesome!

Rating is out! :)

Very cool, super fun and polished! :)

My biggest QoL wish would be an animation speed setting. When playing vs. the AI most of the time I only really care about their turn result (or end state when piggybacking is on). So while most turns go quick, there can sometimes be quite a bit of waiting while they get there.

Hey, so glad you like the game! :)

Great feedback, already had the keys on my list, will look into the back button!

Thank you so much for the kind words! I also noticed this has some "couch coop" potential, haha! :D

Kudos for creating such an intense experience in just 48 hours. Amazing!

Thank you very much for playing and the kind words! Super happy to read a comment like this one! :)

Dankeschön! :)

Nicht ganz so einfach, da die Wiki API mit Seeds nichts anfangen kann. Es gibt aber schon eine (englische) "Daily Arena" im Menü, bei der jeder pro Tag die selben Artikel bekommt. Die werden dann allerdings aus einer großen vorgenerierten Liste von Wiki-IDs gegriffen und nicht von "ganz Wikipedia".

No and no! :)

Hey! Thank you for bringing this up. Mac is the only system I can't really test myself, but I had a friend look into it just now and I think I found a fix (that at least worked for him). Will upload a new build later today! :)

I'd be thrilled to add a Spanish version! Not sure how best to contact you directly but just send me a quick Twitter PM (@Ludokultur) for details! :)

And thank you for the link I'll check it out!

Based on player feedback I added the ability to skip a duel once per run and a "popular articles only" option to the game!

Also happy to report that the game got picked up by content creatores such as Northernlion, Olexa and Esty8nine quite favorably! :)

Thank you for the kind words! :)

In terms of the Wiki content, other languages are easy to add. I'd just need support to translate the UI (buttons, mode descriptions etc.). Theoretically the game is well prepared to add more languages though, so in case anyone's interested in helping translate, let me know!

It can work, but it's not a guarantee. The excerpt is taken from the first paragraph only, which might be super short itself but then still be followed by a long article with man subsections.

Thank you so much for playing and the YT content! Enjoying it a ton! :)

Thank you for playing and the kinds words! The duels are actually completely random for maximum variety, but I sometimes see strange patterns in it too, like "fish vs. sea urchin", what are the odds? :D

Thank you so much! A party game version sounds great actually! :D

Let Wikipedia articles battle it out in the arena and predict the winner!

Each round pits two random Wikipedia articles against each other by their title, an intro section excerpt and an image (if available).

Your task: Guess which article is longer or gets more views. Oh, and you have to pick the category as well based on what you think is the safer bet.

Game Modes

  • Arena: The "roguelike" mode. Try to reach 10 correct predictions before being wrong 3 times!
  • Endless: How many predictions can you get right before being wrong 3 times?
  • Daily Arena: An arena run that's the same for all players each day. Do you think you can read the internet's collective mind better than your friends? Start the daily run from the settings menu!


  • ♾️ Literally infinite content: Wikipedia grows every day and with it the archive the game's article randomizer can pick from. You'll never play the same run twice!
  • 📈 Statistics: Get a neat one-screen overview of your current run anytime!
  • 📊 Meta statistics: The game records how many 10-win runs you had, your highest endless score ever, and all your recent results.
  • 🐦 Battle tweets: Generate a sharable tweet visualizing the battle's result after every duel via a single click!
  • 🌐 Play anywhere: Play the game right in your browser (even on mobile) or download the client. Note that the game requires an internet connection to retrieve the Wikipedia data.
  • 💬 Multi-language support: English and German so far. If you'd like to help with more languages (any supported by Wikipedia basically), get in touch!

Thank you so much! I know exactly what you mean, haha. :D

Thank you so much!

Also I experienced it myself during testing: Your brain gets "bigger" (in terms of the thinking it takes to play this particular game well) over time. :D

Thank you for playing and the kind words! Means a lot! :)

Wrote up a little launch week roundup including highlights from Esty8nine's showcase stream and a full 100-points blitz run!

CIPHER-8 is a brain-twisting game where you push numbers into a grid. Well, numbers or  all kinds of manipulatory tricks. Or bombs apparently. Anyways, after all it’s about making the total value of each column match its goal value. However, changing one column affects the others as well. Oh and by the way, bonus points if you manage to plan ahead a few turns to keep your cipher streak going in the process!

There are two game modes:

  • BLITZ asks you to reach a target score in just 90 seconds, so you better get that brain juice flowing fast!
  • PUZZLE mode on the other hand is all about planning since there’s no timer, but you lose energy if you go without scoring for too many turns.

Both modes track your skill separately and become more challenging every time you beat them.

Enjoy the release trailer (with memes) below!

I played this cause I really liked your LD49 entry Shoved Serenity and as a big fan of digital board games I have to say this one is super cool as well. Could easily see this being expanded and taken from jam game to full release in a bunch of ways. Keep it up! :)

You just put "export gamename.bin" into the console and it'll export binaries for Windows, Linux und Mac. See:

Thank you very much! :)

Haha, thank you very much! And no worries, it's really hard. :D

(1 edit)

Haha it's tough. I barely make it above 10 myself. Also the spinner speed increases sliiightly every time you score, which makes it even harder. Thanks for playing! :D

Ha, thank you very much! :)

I actually immediately started doing all those things after seeing them in Zep's entry (Void Roller) yesterday. Managed to squeeze in a couple more sound effects and highscore tracking (per session) this way.
