Today, Andy Ford from Bear Box Media revealed his latest game: Scribble, a multiplayer game coming soon to the Wii U.
It’s a party game, where several players compete in order to find out who is the best artist. It features 1 500 words, from 17 categories (such as Places and People). There’s also special categories such as Hard or Easy (for kids), and a custom category where you can put words you and your friends/family created.
The game can be played with up to 8 players, and features a total of 6 game modes:
- Versus mode;
- Teams (teams can have from 2 to 6 players);
- Elimination (players take turn drawing something. Other players have to take guesses at what the picture is, and if nobody manages to guess a specific picture, the player who drew it is eliminated);
- Barricade (teams have to try to reach the opposite side of a board)
- Tug’O’Draw (a team game, where everyone has to take guesses. Every time a player guesses right, their team get a point, and the other team loses one. It’s the team who reaches 10 points first who wins);
- Just Doodle (basically, a Free mode).
To spice things up, you can use “mutators”, which change the way the game is played, but are entirely optional. We’re given two examples:
- Blackout mode: covers the drawing screen with an ink splat;
- Mirror Mode: horizontally inverts the drawing screen.
Scribble (Wii U eShop) will be released before the end of the year, and should cost around $4 / 4€ / £3. Our Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
