Wiki Islands

You wash up on a desert Wiki Island but you soon discover that you're not alone in the Wiki Archipelago. Someone else is sending you messages in a bottle, giving you hints on his/her position. Maybe by sending some hints back you could actually meet him/her on one of the islands! Click or tap the bottle to choose some words to send to the other player, then tap the horizion to get to a new Wiki Island. Choose wisely based on the hints you received or you'll never find each other! As the old saying goes 'Who finds a friend finds a treasure.' Wiki Islands is a multiplayer game based on wikipedia's articles scraping, exploration, communication and collaborations. All the Islands and the words you can send throuh the bottle are generated from Wikipedia data. We were inspired by the META diversifier Special:Random and we brought it to a new meta level.
