RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS

Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

Draw Something Is A Total Ripoff Of Depict

Everyone's talking about Draw Something. Seriously, where did this game come from? Almost overnight, Draw Something sparked up a ton of interest and developers OMGPOP got picked up by Zynga for $200 million.

In actuality, Draw Something is another shameless iOS ripoff, of another iOS ripoff that was also ripped off by another iOS game, all of which is a rip off of fucking Pictionary, the game you've been playing when relatives are over for years.


Here's Draw Something: a game where you send Pictionary-esque drawings to another person so they can guess what you've drawn with a Scrabble-like selection of letters.


Here's Mini Painters: a game where you painted images so that five other people would guess what you drew. Earn points by quickly drawing something the other players can guess. Earn even more points by being the first to correctly guess the drawn word.


Here's Depict: a game where you do exactly what I described above... EXACTLY WHAT I DESCRIBED ABOVE.


Here's Pictionary: a game you've had in your closet for OVER 25 YEARS. Fucking Pictionary.

To Zynga: How were these people worth $200 million to you? They had NOT A SINGLE ORIGINAL IDEA. Sending the puzzle back and forth is just like Words with Friends. The drawing is just like... Pictionary. Monetizing it with ads in the free version is just like every other iOS game. Offering coins up for people to buy other stuff in the game is just like every other freemium game!

Your investment will never pay off because they didn't have an original idea. They ripped something off heinously. Of course... that seems to be fitting with your corporate culture. You two were meant for each other.
