Scribble announced for the Wii U

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!
