Snap Finger Click, developer of It’s Quiz Time and Act It Out, has announced that their new friendship-testing party game Awkward will release on Nintendo Switch on June 19, 2018 priced at $11.99 / €12.99 / £9.99.
Designed to be played by between one and six friends, cooperatively or competitively in teams, Awkward’s fiendish questioning is set to test relationships and disclose secrets that participants never intended to reveal. The game features over 5,000 questions, written by Danny Gallagher (Quiplash, Fibbage 2) and Joanna Haslam (Buzz!, It’s Quiz Time).
Awkward is a simple proposition on paper, inviting players to answer a series of questions about themselves, choosing between two distinct answers. The twist comes when fellow players must guess how the first one responded each time, testing how well they know each other. Guess correctly, and the game recognises and rewards the compatibility.
Originally a highly controversial card game, the story goes that Awkward was banned at the end of the 19th century due to the conflict it caused, from bar brawls and slanderous gossiping to family feuds and divorces. This revival of the game sees it swap the physical card format for easy, controller-passing local multiplayer gameplay.
