Snap Finger Click, developer of It’s Quiz Time and Act It Out, announced that their adults-only party game Awkward will launch on Nintendo Switch on July 5, 2018 for $11.99 / €12.99 / £9.99.
Playable by between one and six participants, cooperatively or competitively, Awkward’s fiendish questioning will test friendships 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.
Sounds pleasant enough – but its makers’ advice is to play Awkward at your own risk, as across a series of rounds its questions grow significantly less trivial. Don’t be surprised if Awkward teases out some uncomfortable truths, sparking (hopefully good natured) debate amongst its players.
