About This Game

Writer’s Block is a roguelike word game where writing is fighting.

Enter the wondrous world of an author’s imagination. Battle mental monsters standing in the way of writing a book. Spell out words to fight absurd opponents and evade their devious abilities. Your vocabulary means the difference between victory and defeat.



  • Choose your protagonist! In the land of fiction, writing implements are warriors. Play as the heroic fountain pen Font in the demo, with more characters to come in the full release.
  • Face challenging enemies with unique powers and weaknesses. Stay on your toes and adjust your strategy to defeat them. The biggest word isn’t always the best one.



  • Endlessly replayable. Each run provides a randomized map, three vast lands to explore, and a wide variety of villains to vanquish.
  • Collect literary devices to boost your strength and unlock alternate strategies. Demolish an enemy with an alliteration, deploy a deus ex machina, protect yourself with plot armor. An ample arsenal of upgrades ensures that no two playthroughs are ever the same.



  • Help an aspiring writer vanquish avatars of stress, doubt, and procrastination to achieve the dream of writing a book. Your quest is her novel.
  • Read your masterpiece! Each victorious run is summarized in book form, forever immortalized on a library shelf.
