Fugazo today announces the launch of their latest social word game, Can't Say That! 1.0, on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
So you think you can describe the word 'baseball' to someone else? Easy, right? Try doing it without using the words "sport," "game," "run," "base," or "pitcher" as clues. Oh, and you only get 24 letters to describe it. That's exactly what Can't Say That! players have to do in this mobile twist on a popular word game that allows people to test their powers of description against Facebook friends and strangers.
The goal of Can't Say That! is simple. Players take turns as "describers" and "solvers". The "describers" are given a word and must try to creatively prompt their friends to guess the word without using certain forbidden words - for example, describing "cooking" without saying "food", "kitchen" or any other obvious descriptors.
The "solver" must then guess the word. Players' round numbers go up each time a word is successfully guessed and the score continues to rise until somebody forfeits on a word resetting the counter to zero. The "describers" are limited only by their imagination and are free to create any crazy and colorful ways to describe the thousands of people, places, objects, actions and more that the game throws at them.
"Beware - Can't Say That! is incredibly addictive!" said Andrew Lum, Creative Director at Fugazo. "On our first day of focus testing, office productivity pretty much dropped to zero because everyone couldn't stop playing the game."
One player can participate in up to 25 games with different players at any one time. Players can challenge their friends through Facebook as well as play against randomly selected strangers. If you become stumped on a word you can post screenshots to Facebook for help. Players earn coins each time they successfully solve a word. Coins can be used to purchase a wide variety of word packs as well as power-ups to help them solve words.
Can't Say That! is now available on the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch in two versions - free to play ad-funded and an ad-free premium version that retails at $2.99.
