Here's a glimpse at our next title, We Doodle, in submission with Apple now: http://bit.ly/bNXMgh

It looks to me like Charadium is going to be replaced with this new take on the game.

Quote:
We Doodle, ngmoco's latest freemium game, is a fresh riff on the classic board game Pictionary. Players draw objects in hopes of getting other players to guess what they are without actually spelling out the mystery item. We Doodle replaces the pad of paper, as expected, with an iDevice.

Up to six people can play We Doodle online via asynchronous turns or live play. The flow of We Doodle is simple. You are given a list of four objects to draw. You may swap out objects on the list if you find one that stumps you, but you only have a few choices per entry on the list and if you keep passing, you will eventually hit the end of your options and be forced into the final selection. After drawing each object, you then send your doodles to the other players. They receive a push notification if you are not playing live.

Then, they open up We Doodle and attempt to guess. Correct guesses are worth points to both the guesser and the artist, so there is no incentive to screw over the drawer by throwing out bum guesses. After everybody submits their guesses and points are awarded, the next player in the game becomes the drawer, and so on. Now, if you go for live play instead of asynchronous turns, other players get to guess right away under immediate threat of a timer.

Tweet from ngmoco, oddly though I don't see it on the Canada Appstore. Anyone else having trouble searching for it on the AppStore?
