Independent Australian developer, Christian Lee, has launched Draw Team, the new social drawing party game that can be played on iPad combined with Apple TV. Making use of the technology of the iPad to integrate with Apple TV via AirPlay, Draw Team plays like a traditional board game minus the hassle. It’s the perfect party game that harnesses the social possibilities of the iPad and is just as fun to play without Apple TV for those who don’t own one.
“My friends and I have always been huge board game fans, and I saw the opportunity to bring real social interaction to an iOS game with the current Apple platforms,” says Christian. “I wanted to remind people of the true meaning of ‘social’, and create as much laughter as possible in the process.”
As one player draws a secretly revealed mystery word on the iPad, their drawing appears simultaneously on the television screen and other players guess the word to compete for points. Players can relive the fun by sharing amusing or remarkable drawings via e-mail and social media platforms with friends not in the room.
The game is free to download for a limited time and has a simple interface so is easy for everyone to pick up and play. Up to nine individuals can play at a time or for bigger parties numbers are unlimited in team play mode. In-app purchases of additional word packs tailored to skill level or special category such as “Difficult”, “Kids” and “Movies”.
