A hilarious social trivia game with a twist - you don't need to know the answer, just make something up to trick your friends!
Question: What does U.R.P. stand for?
A) Unidentified Road Pizza
B) Urban Racing Pact
C) Ultimate Rave Party
D) Universal Radio Platform
Before you answer, know that this is NOT another trivia game. While there is a correct answer, your main goal in Bluff Wars is to come up with convincing fake answers and gain points by tricking your friends into guessing them. If you enjoy the feeling of bluffing out your friends in games like poker, then you'll love Bluff Wars. But there's more than just acronyms! Hoodwink your friends by writing hilarious movie titles, ridiculous quotes, unbelievable laws and much more! Or play our various images categories and really stretch your creativity! With over 2000 unique prompts, the fun is endless!
With a game like Bluff Wars, the social aspect is essential. Facebook connectivity means you will instantly be able to invite all of your friends to play in one of two modes. One-on-one pits you against one of your friends in a game of unlimited length, tracking your stats along the way. Or multiply the fun by playing group mode with 3-6 players, where you could potentially bluff out 5 friends at once to boost your score, and embarrass them all by posting it straight to your Facebook!
Oh, by the way, the answer was Unidentified Road Pizza.
What Exactly Is Bluff Wars?
Have you ever wished you could have a party-game experience without all the game boards, cards, papers, and other clutter? Or without even having to gather your friends in one place at the same time?
A game of Bluff Wars begins when you invite a friend for a one-on-one match or up to 5 friends for group play. You can also create a game by playing with random players. Choose one of our 6 categories to receive a prompt!
After choosing a category, you will be given a question to answer, or a "prompt". As opposed to a traditional trivia game, you do not need to know the correct answer. Just make something up! But think carefully, since the point of the game is to trick other players into guessing your answer.
Now each of your friends receives the same prompt and also makes up an answer. When everyone has submitted their entry, it's time to guess. The answer choices include the correct answer, your friends' answers, and an additional fake answer.
After everyone has guessed, it's time to see the results! Two points are awarded for having another player guess your answer, and one point is awarded for choosing the correct answer. Post the results to Facebook to embarrass your friends and show off your best bluff-outs!
Who Are We?
FangTooth Studios is a new game development company with a focus on unique social experiences. Founded by two graduates of the top-rated Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship, and joined by a team of expert programmers, our company is committed to bringing quality and innovation to mobile platforms. Everyone on our team is very passionate about gaming, and while we have many exciting ideas in development, Bluff Wars is the furthest along, and our flagship title at the moment, so we need your help to make sure the quality is top-notch.
Why Do We Need Your Help?
Since social interaction is so vital to us, we would like to bring Bluff Wars to the largest audience we can, so you can connect with as many friends as possible from day one. At this point, development is quite far along on iOS, but we need funds to finish the game, pack it with extra content, develop Bluff Wars for Android, and to pursue publishers for promotion of the game. With enough funding, we would even like to bring the game to Windows Phone and your favorite web browser!
Everyone involved in the development of Bluff Wars is passionate about this project and believes in its potential to be the next huge social game. With your support, we will make sure the game launches with nothing short of flawless gameplay, excellent presentation, and enough unique content and fresh ideas to keep the game fun for a very long time.
There will be a free version of the game with 4 categories and up to 3 player group mode. The paid version will be $1.99 with no ads and will support up to 6 players. While the Quirky Quotes and Incredible Images category will be $0.99 and $1.99, respectively, you can unlock them for free by playing enough rounds!
We have added a fake answer choice to each question, so there will be plenty of challenge and skill involved, even in one-on-one mode!
We hope to release the game in late August or early September on iOS. We have the capability to bring the game to Android soon after, but it will depend on how much funding we get (hint hint).
We would love to bring Bluff Wars to as many platforms as possible, but again, it will depend on how much we get funded.
No, actually we've implemented an algorithm that will make sure you don't see the same question twice unless you have to! Also, with over 2000 questions, that won't be happening any time soon.
We will have S-XL, so don't worry you will get to pick your size and show off your stylish Bluff Wars apparel!
If I pledge at the $25 level, do I get the full, paid versions of future games, including the downloadable content?
Yes, and you will get it all at the game's launch!
The iOS version will be universal, so it will be on iPhone/iPod Touch as well as being optimized for iPad.
The prompts are designed to be obscure and very difficult to look up. And while you have unlimited time to write a made-up answer, you have a very limited time to guess once the answer choices are revealed.
Please include an extra $15 for the $40 and $100 level. That will take care of the additional cost :)
