Synonymy is my first game, made as a challenge to myself to create a meaningful work of art with no narrative components. Having an interest in the sciences from an early age, the writings of Richard Dawkins first cultivated my affection for words. It therefore felt natural to solicit his involvmenet in the project, and I am endebted to him for his support.
The greatest obstacle in making the game was assembling the synonym database, which you can see a 2D rendering of below:
Thanks should be given to Lewis Carroll and Vladimir Nabokov whose writings helped inspire the mechanics of the game. Read more about these works here
Celebrities Stephen Fry, Steven Pinker and David Crystal also deserve thanks for their kind endorsements of Synonymy, you can read more about these here.
