Scribble includes 5 unique modes for up to 8 players: Versus mode (all against all), Teams (Red VS Blue, team sizes 2-6), Elimination (Players take turns drawing until someone fails to guess their picture, at which point they are eliminated from the game (but can still guess other pictures)), Barricade (Blockbusters inspired mode, in which teams try to reach the opposite side of a board from their starting point) and Tug'O'Draw (A team game, but everyone guesses. Whichever team guesses scores the point, and the other team loses one. First to reach 10 points, wins.) It comes with over 1500 words from 17 categories, such as Objects, Places and People, and of course the customary "Difficult" category. However, it also includes an "Easy mode" category, customised specifically for children, meaning kids can play alongside adults and still take part in both drawing and guessing.

Bear Box Media is proud to announce Scribble. A Pictionary inspired game designed from the ground up to be playable by the whole family.

It comes with over 1500 words from 17 categories, such as Objects, Places and People, and of course the customary "Difficult" category. However, it also includes an "Easy mode" category, customised specifically for children, meaning kids can play alongside adults and still take part in both drawing and guessing.

ScribbleMainMenu

Scribble includes 5 unique modes for up to 8 players: Versus mode (all against all), Teams (Red VS Blue, team sizes 2-6), Elimination (Players take turns drawing until someone fails to guess their picture, at which point they are eliminated from the game (but can still guess other pictures)), Barricade (Blockbusters inspired mode, in which teams try to reach the opposite side of a board from their starting point) and Tug'O'Draw (A team game, but everyone guesses. Whichever team guesses scores the point, and the other team loses one. First to reach 10 points, wins.)

TugODraw

Similar to Bear Box Media's popular U Host's question creator, players also have the option to create as many of their own words as they can think of, stored in a custom category that can be toggled on and off.

Drawing

Scribble also includes game modifiers called "Mutators" that change the way in which the game is played, specifically, how things are drawn. For example, Blackout mode covers the artist's screen with a black ink splat, making it tricky to see what they're drawing. Another example is Mirror Mode, which horizontally inverts where the artist is drawing. This can lead to some hilarious moments, when drawing something simple suddenly becomes seemingly impossible. I'm aware that some players find these Mutators more leaning on the side of frustrating than fun, so every one of them is entirely optional, and can be toggled on and off in the setup screen.

BlackoutMutator

With 5 game modes, each offering a different experience, I've also included a "Just Doodle" mode, which strips out the timer and the Mutators, giving players a mode where they can just sit back and practice their drawing, make their own rules, or even combine it with Board-games such as Pictionary.

Release price is aimed to be around the $4/€4/£3 price point, with a release before the holidays.

I HATE UPLAY. I bought a game on it, but hated UPLAY so bought it on Steam. Steam forces you to use UPLAY! So I bought the same game twice!!

So Nintendo are offering to repair controllers, but they only mention the left one. I'm getting issues with both. 1 week return/repair? Hmm.

How do other devs do AI? Start off with super-intelligence then dumb them down, or the other way around? Getting that balance is hard!

Although I'm loving my Switch device, I don't like how it's already crashed/frozen on me twice, and the controllers lose signal too much.

Mar 18 2017

Anyone using the Switch to play games multiplayer undocked? I find the screen waaaay too small for that. Can't imagine split screen MK8.

Love the community around me on Twitter! Really glad we can share opinions on games without resorting to insults and degrading comments.

Watching ice melt for over a minute is marginally more fun than watching paint dry. Where's the fun???… T.co

Mar 15 2017

Things I would change with BOTW: 1) Allow players to wait 2) Stamina completely redesigned 3) Craft/Repair weapons 4) Much stronger shields

Mar 11 2017

See? Much easier! Only found out after dropping my controller in frustration and disgust! #BreathoftheWildT.co

Mar 10 2017

These controller tilt puzzles are awful in Zelda. I ended up turning the controller upside down and using the bottom to solve them.
