I’ve seen them. You’ve seen them. We’ve all seen the little black, green and yellow squares flood our Twitter timelines as people share their Wordle victories and woes. The daily five-letter word game has quickly become a part of many people’s routine, but sharing your results in a tweet is so blasé. Instead, why not announce your victory over the English dictionary with a Townscaper building?

GitHub user tarmo888 has created Wordle2Townscaper, which lets you take those coloured squares and turn them into funky-looking structures. You can either paste your tweet into the GitHub page, copy over your results or enter it all in manually. It’ll then spit out a link for your shiny new Townscaper building that you can view in the recently released browser-based demo. 

There are a few customisation options, like filling in the gaps or removing the bottom gap so you’re not potentially rocking a building on giant stilts. It gives you a rather basic tower (or bungalow, depending on how good you are), but as Rock Paper Shotgun points out it can make a good starting point to add some depth and build upon.

It’s a cool alternative way to share your guesses, and it’s friendlier for accessibility too—while Wordle’s current share function is nice and abstract for those who’ve yet to complete the puzzle, it’s a nightmare for people who use screen readers to navigate Twitter. Even Townscaper’s creator Oskar Stålberg got in on the fun, tweeting his “embarrassing attempt” at Wordle in building form. I got some of the PC Gamer team to send me over their own results for today’s word and ran them all through Wordle2Townscaper for your viewing pleasure.
