Today’s ‘Wordle’ #815 Answer, Hints and Tips for Tuesday, September 12 Game


It’s been nearly three years since Wordle was first released to the public, in October 2021, yet the popular word game shows few signs of losing its viral appeal.

Wordle was first invented during coronavirus lockdown by Josh Wardle, a New York based software engineer, who aimed to create a game “for me and my partner to enjoy.”

After being made publicly available, Wordle quickly built up a loyal following across the English speaking world, with some players taking to social media each day to share their results and tactics. Wardle sold Wordle to The New York Times in January 2022, though the game has since remained free to play.

In an interview with Newsweek, Erhan Aslan, an associate professor of applied linguistics at the University of Reading in the U.K., argued social media was key to Wordle‘s swift rise in popularity.

He said: “Word-based puzzles and games have been around for quite a while, and they are nothing new. What is different or new today is how and where people play games. Before the digital age, word puzzle games, particularly crossword puzzles, would usually appear in newspapers and magazines. People would do them while waiting for the bus or train, in the toilet, or just to kill time.

“In today’s digital age, like many other things, many simple games like Wordle can be played online. I think that Wordle gains its popularity not only from its simple rules but also from its virality on social media platforms as a result of people sharing/posting their scores to demonstrate a sense of accomplishment and validation.”
