Depict Now Free Forever

We've been experimenting with the price of Depict and have decided that it will become a free app with in-app purchases.

The next update (coming soon) will feature a handful of $0.99 add-ons and the core game as it exists now will continue to be free without ads or limitations.

We're putting the finishing touches on the update now, so it should be out within the next couple weeks.

So what are you waiting for? Grab Depict and start drawing!

There will be a custom avatar creator and an additional game type at launch. We'll make a formal announcement with the specifics of both when they are finished.

I can say that the avatar creator will allow players to draw and save an unlimited number of custom avatars for use in-game. You can create anything you want (faces, icons, short words, etc). Of course, to go along with this, we're also introducing improved moderation controls.

Cool, I'd love to have an extra avatar or two...

Once you start making them, you can't stop. I have over 50 now.

You should make a chat too. Make it block any words that may express or be one of the things you can guess. A chat would be very nice.

We may add chat in the future, but it would only be with pre-defined phrases. It's hard enough controlling annoying players without having chat.

In the meantime, you can use the avatar creator to make avatars that say things like "Hi", "Bye", "Cool", etc.

Yeah, everyone goes into a chat mode and when people are done they go into game mode. When everyone is out of chat mode, the game begins again.
