Company Summary

Ballpoint is taking mobile word games in a brand new direction. Instead of constructing words from letters, players use words in the context of communicating with their friends. Novel integration with Twitter, Facebook, SMS, and Google+ evolves the very definition of what is a "social" game. Players can show off, learn new words, and play in tournaments. A full complement of game mechanics and unlimited content promote long game lifetimes.
