Wordle: Yannick Rochat interviewed by Le Temps about the word game phenomenon

DhCenter member Yannick Rochat, a researcher on video game culture and gamification in the EPFL College of Humanities, spoke to Swiss newspaper Le Temps about the online word game, Wordle.

Rochat, co-founder of the UNIL-EPFL GameLab, was interviewed by the French-language paper following the purchase of the viral game, which was developed by a British engineer, by The New York Times. He explains the significance of the Times’ acquisition of the simple but explosively successful word game.
