Available today is The Phrase Game - the world's first, fast-paced, massively multiplayer online word game. At its core, it is a hangman-type game that you are probably familiar with; hints are given and letters are randomly revealed as you try to guess the phrase quicker than everyone else. However, instead of being limited to taking turns and playing against one or two friends as is en vogue with many online games, you compete against everyone playing across all platforms, in real-time.
“At the end of each round, you can see what place you came in relative to everyone else in the world whether they played on the Website version of the game, the Facebook version, or the Android or iOS apps,” explains Don Lee, lead developer. “You are also shown a separate rank indicating how you did with respect to all of your friends that played. There are also cumulative World and Friend rankings which are updated each round. You can even see how well players on each of the platforms are doing against each other as a whole.”
Another unique feature is the game’s badge system. Like many games, you are awarded badges for doing well. Unlike other games, however, if you have the most of any type of badge, you become the “inspiration” for that type of badge which results in your profile image gracing every copy of it in the game. And for those gambling types who do not want to be limited to only winning badges by placing highly in a round, you can also bet and win badges off of other players.
The Phrase Game makes full use of its MMO status by promoting social interaction. In addition to the afore mentioned Friend rankings and the bragging rights it provides, playing with friends gives the added benefit of granting you extra opportunities to multiply your points during The Bonus Game, a game of chance that runs at the end of each round. There are also chat rooms in which you can announce your badge bets, ask for gifts of bonus credits, or just make new friends. Correctly guess a phrase quickly enough, and you can have your quote immortalized in the History of Games for all to see. There are currently tens of thousands of phrases to guess with more being added.
