"Toast" is a word guessing game. The goal is to guess the target word the program randomly picks from the chosen word collection. By asking a series of “Is the word closer to WordA or WordB?” questions, the player will navigate through a vector space where words are mapped into vector coordinates based on their similarity to each other within the larger context. The program calculates the distance between the target word and the guessing words, changes the prompt to display the word of smaller of the two distances, and plots the correct guessing trail on the canvas.

The words were curated by us, processed with spaCy word2vec, scaled and plotted with Sci-kitLearn t-SNE, and are brought to your browser with pixi.js. Enjoy!
