We worked hard to ensure It's Quiz Time and both versions of ACT IT OUT! were rated E for everyone. But for our next game, we wanted to try something a little more grown up.
Awkward is all about gamifying conversations. While there's still a game with scores at the heart of it, the real fun comes from the debates that the players have over the questions. And in 2018, it feels more appropriate than ever to challenge people's controversial views on anything and everything!
A Tabletop-style Game done Digital
Awkward looks and feels like a tabletop card game. It works for both large groups and small, it can be played in short bursts, and - by bringing it to Nintendo Switch - it's perfect for playing on the go.
By making Awkward a digital game, we're able to do a lot more than tabletop games allow. As well as managing complex scoring systems, we're also able to show how the other Awkward players have answered questions. It's a fascinating and addictive feature.
PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK
At the end of the 1800s the government declared a global ban on this legendary card game due to an increase in bar fights, divorces, and family feuds. It was political correctness gone mad.
Awkward is the ultimate test on finding out how well friends, couples, and family know each other. Players are asked to answer increasingly uncomfortable questions in secret, while their companions try to guess the outcome.
HEATED CLASSICS! Pineapple on pizza, yay or nay?
RELATIONSHIP CHOICES! What part of your partner do you prefer, body or face?
HORRIBLE DILEMMAS! If you could only save the life of one, would you choose a 1-year-old or an 18-year-old?
Whether you deduce correctly or incorrectly, games of Awkward help players see each other in a brand new light. And your opinion counts: each Awkward question will let you compare your vote to the rest of the world. Banned for over 120-years, Awkward is back, and you can now enjoy this controversial adult card game as a videogame.
Featuring the original banned questions, as well as all new content written by Danny Gallagher (Quiplash, Fibbage 2) and Joanna Haslam (Buzz! Quiz World, It's Quiz Time). One to six players can join in, with a huge selection of game modes on offer. Play cooperatively, as teams, competitively, or solo players can play alone to guess how the rest of the world fared with Awkward's controversial questions.
