Drawsome! Zynga adds new social features to Draw Something
Zynga, leading provider of social game services, announced that Draw Something, the hit mobile game, is introducing a host of new features and functionality, including comments and share, for an even more fun, social experience. These new in-game features will be available for iOS and Android users to give players more ways to express themselves and share their hand-drawn creations.
“We’ve been completely blown away by how the world has responded to Draw Something. Our players continue to make the game their own and we want to help them do just that by giving them what they’ve asked for – more ways to share and connect with their friends,” said Dan Porter, vice president and general manager of Zynga Mobile New York. “We’re always focused on making Draw Something the most fun and social experience possible for our players.”
Draw Something is one of the most expressive mobile games ever built. The game is built on collaboration between friends and between all players. In this made-for-mobile game, one player draws a picture of a chosen word (starfish, anyone?) and the other must guess the word correctly before taking their own turn at drawing. Players earn coins by guessing pictures correctly and can earn shades of color for drawing even brighter, more eye-popping pictures.
New Draw Something features announced include:
Sharing is Caring: Show off your #humblebrag masterpieces and #epicfails on Facebook and Twitter in just two clicks. Plus, save drawings to your photo library to email to friends, or use as wallpaper. Available now on iOS, and coming soon for Android.
Messaging (and Banter!): Let your fingers do the talking – through your drawings and through new Draw Something comments. Sometimes WTF? LMAO! or OMG! say it all. Attach a short message (up to 100 characters) to your drawing, and your partner will be able to respond after they guess. No more scribbling messages - just type it out. But no cheating!
Pull Down to Refresh: Update your games in an instant with an easy way to refresh.
Easy Undo: That mid-drawing sneeze is no challenge to your masterpiece, now just click the undo button to erase that last pesky stroke.
999 > 99: Blaze by the "100 Club" and challenge friends to take your streaks to 999.
Draw Something is available for free on the the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch and for Google Play for Android devices.
