Every so often, a new mobile gaming craze sweeps across smartphone screens around the world — think Angry Birds, Words with Friends, Tiny Tower.Over the past few weeks, Draw Something has become the new sensation.
智能手机游戏时常会引发全球的狂热追捧，像Angry Birds, Words with Friends, Tiny Tower。
The idea is simple enough. Players sketch a picture and challenge friends to guess what it is. The game is a modern twist on Pictionary and is riddled with popular culture references, like asking players to draw the pop singer Rihanna or the basketball star Jeremy Lin. And it has taken off like a rocket.
Released less than two months ago, Draw Something has already garnered more than 25 million downloads. More than 1.5 billion pictures have been drawn during game play.
Draw Something is the creation of OMGPop, a social gaming start-up in New York.
There are two versions of Draw Something — a free one, supported by ads, and a paid one, for 99 cents. Both versions let users purchase virtual goods, like additional colors to draw with.
Originally, the game was designed to be played in a Web browser, and later, the company linked it to Facebook. But neither version stirred much interest from players. It wasn’t until the company released versions for iOS and Android-powered devices that it caught fire.
Mr. Porter, the chief executive of the company, attributed the game’s success to its real-time feel. Players can watch animated playbacks of their teammates trying to guess their creation before taking their turn. The word choices are another big selling point; in addition to standard selections like “orange” and “dynamite,” the game is liberally infused with pop culture references.
For now, the company’s 42 employees are devoting all of their resources to the game, including rolling out new features like the ability for players to chat with each other, save drawings and browse through other drawings made by players.
