New York Times develops puzzle games ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

There is a game design studio in New York Times, and you can play many of the titles for free. Most of the games are a variation of a crossword or a Sudoku puzzle. There’s also a monthly Crossword subscription service which allows you to get a daily puzzle that can be solved on a mobile device.

If you don’t want to pay for a subscription, there are some mini-games like this one where you need to match the words vertically and horizontally.

A leading NYT game designer Sam Von Ehren has recently posted an article discussing his experience at the newspaper. Here is how he opens the piece:

I usually get one of two responses: “The Times makes games?” or “What is a game designer?”

Both questions aren’t surprising considering that NYT isn’t famous as a design studio at all and most people reading NYT aren’t familiar with the industry of gaming.

Sam Von Ehren says he hopes his work will help people find a diversion from “trials and pressures of the real life.” You can make his dream come true by spending some time playing those games right now!
