Unique new turn-based multiplayer game "Can't
Say That!" launches on the App Store for iPhone/iPod Touch
Fugazo today announced the launch of their latest social word game Can't Say
That! on the App Store for iPhone 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
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
