Draw Something – The World’s Biggest Trend in Social Gaming
Pictionary’s Digital Cousin Is On The Top Of The Charts
In six weeks, the app developer OMGPOP‘s Draw Something app is on top of both the iTunes Free and Paid charts. That’s pretty amazing.
Wait till you read these facts:
- The day the game launched, Draw Something players crafted three drawings per second.
- Yesterday, Draw Something players crafted 3,000 drawings per second.
- Draw Something is the #1 word game in 85 countries, according to the App Store.
The social media player, Zynga, has bought the developer for $200 million today. The reason for the success of this game? It’s essentially Pictionary that allows you to play against your Facebook friends. Drawings are often shared on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. This is the 21st century Pictionary for the iPhone generation.
