New Pictionary app lets users sketch on the go
Etermax, the creator of Trivia Crack and Aworded Crack, announced the launch of the digital app version of Pictionary, based on the classic draw-n-guess board game, in partnership with Mattel. The mobile app will launch on April 27, surprising users with an all new way to play.

The new Pictionary app will include features inspired by the classic top selling draw-n-guess board game, while incorporating an innovative real-time feature which will allow players to make guesses while they see what their partners and opponents are drawing. This new app will also feature a simple, yet fun and colorful interface with the spirit of the board game that fans know and love.

Hightlights:


- The words you can draw will be divided into 4 categories: “Person, Place, Animal”, “Object”, “Action” and “Difficult”.

- Fans will be able to play in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Turkish and Russian.

- Variety of drawing tools that get better as you win including a pencil, paintbrush, crayon, pen, highlighter and eraser.

- Feed Section in which users can get inspiration from friends’ drawings.

"Pictionary has brought families together for more than 40 years, and Etermax is the perfect partner to bring this classic game to life in a new way for the next generation," said Ray Adler, Senior Director, Global Marketing of Games at Mattel. "Fans will have even more ways to engage and challenge each other on-the-go one digital sketch at a time."

Starting April 27, Pictionary will be available to download for free on iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle Fire. Users will be able to pre-register in Google Play and receive a notification once the app is available.
