eardle is a popular online song-guessing game inspired by Wordle, the phenomenal word-guessing game that has taken the world by storm.
The game for music fans, self-described as “a respectful homage to Wordle, with a musical twist,” was created by a London-based app and web designer who wants to remain anonymous.
He explained to Variety what inspired him to create the game, and said: “I was working for a start-up until December 2021, when they ran out of money, and I was out of a gig.
“I’m still between jobs at the moment, and like everyone in January, I began playing Wordle and posting my scores on a group chat site where my friends would also talk about their scores.”
The game was initially played by its creator’s friends, but once it was launched publicly, it gained popularity and is now played by more than a million players a day.
