About This Game

Write Nice Letters to People and Get Stickers

Has something got you down? Stressed you out? Scared you? That's pretty normal. It might help you to talk about it.
In Kind Words, players anonymously write out their concerns and sorrows by making short requests for letters.

Receive Comforting Letters

Everyone can respond to requests with letters of comfort, sympathy or gentle advice.

Kind Words is a positive context; a warm, cozy mood. A place to feel centered and focused on the opportunity presented:
Use your words to lift others and be lifted in return.

Oh, and There’s Stickers!

You start the game with a couple random stickers in their inventory.
Stickers can be placed on letters written to others or sent as an appreciative response to a letter that has been received.
Once you get a new sticker, you can make copies of that sticker to send out to other players.
Each sticker also comes with a 3D toy that you can put on display in your room.

Swap letters to build up your collection of stickers and room decorations!

Kind Words 2?


We're working on a sequel right now, but this original version of Kind Words will still be supported. In fact, the two games will share save files and players of both games can write to each other. Play Kind Words today and wishlist Kind Words 2 for an expanded experience soon!
