Sword fights and fairies and dungeons, and this isn't a Zelda title? Surely it's just as good... right?

DAILY MANIFESTO

Fibbage Is All About How Well You Can Lie, It's Fantastic

Posted on Friday, August 29 @ 07:00:00 Eastern by


Microsoft's ID@Xbox event, which took place at its campus near Seattle, showcased approximately 30 indie titles of various sizes, and from among them, the most memorable was the elegant and simple title called Fibbage. Developed by the same team that brought you You Don't Know Jack!, Jackbox Games, the object of the game is to make up false answers to a fill-in-the-blank question and hope that your fellow players are fooled by your answer.

An example of a question, voiced by the same narrator from YDKJ, can be "anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere in the world a _____ is watching you." I might come up with "clowns," you might come up with "the government," and everyone else playing along will create something as deceptive. Then all of our answers are shown with one lie by the computer and the actual answer. You gain points for answering correctly and having players choose your lie. (If you actually type in the right answer, which in this case is a "duck," then you're automatically notified that you have the right answer.)

One full match of Fibbage is only seven questions long with three rounds, with every category chosen by a player at random. The first two rounds consist of three questions, while the final round of Final Fibbage only has one question but is worth a ridiculous amount of points. Since Fibbage only takes a few moments to finish, the replay value is strong, though having a few more options would have been best. 

The genius about the system is that everyone inputs the answer using their smartphones or computer. So just be sure that you actually have one of these before purchasing the game. Fibbage may only be $6.99 on Xbox One, but just be sure you have the required equipment. All it takes to join the game is the four-letter room key and the ability to sign up on Fibbage.com (no login required). But because it's based on smartphone/computer input, it's perfect for streaming on Twitch and it's prepared by design to be ready for couch co-op as well as remote play.

Available on the marketplaceFibbage is quick, easy, and readily replayable. When I arrive back from PAX, I'll be downloading this Xbox One exclusive once I have time to take a breather. (I may even stream it! Wann aply)
