Discover the weird beauty of the language in Moby-Dick with OMBY, a new kind of word-puzzle game based on Herman Melville's classic novel.
"OMBY is like a friend who accompanies me to the Louvre and keeps me from striding past a hundred unfamiliar masterworks on my way to see the ones I already know. In the Louvre, though, the art is already on the wall. OMBY lets me co-create Moby-Dick's unfamiliar ingenuities, searching like Melville for the right words, massaging the letters into something meaningful." \---Tim Cassedy (Avidly, Los Angeles Review of Books)
Playing OMBY, you'll unscramble sets of 1x2 domino word tiles containing portions of text that have been blacked-out, as if by a censor's pen. As you solve each puzzle, the blacked-out text is revealed. Pause periodically to savor the completed paragraphs.
Finish all 10,395 puzzles and you will have read the complete text of Moby Dick! Page-by-page, chapter-by-chapter, an epic voyage of puzzle solving and classic literature awaits you!
