The lights are on
It seems that the level of entertainment players receive from Draw Something might be drawing pretty thin at this point.
Only a few months ago, Draw Something seemed like the hottest app on the market. Now, the Pictionary-like mobile app is loosing players by the millions. Zynga bought Draw Something creator OMGPOP for nearly $200 million in March, but according to BBC News, WebMediaBrands data suggests that almost five million daily users have abandoned the game over the past month.
I know I stopped playing, and went back to Infinity Blade II. What are you playing on your phone right now?
Email the author Ben Reeves, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
OMGPOP has to be glad they sold the business when they did. Probably laughing all the way to the bank.
they could easily make it popular again just by adding a way to ya know, win.. a few more words would help, but if they just made it based on the level of word and the time it took to draw/guess it to factor in points and the first one to like 100 wins or something.
I don't play games on my phone, I read comics on my phone though!
At this point I only play it if I am nudged.
I stopped because college work happened. And I did get kind of bored with it...
what? nonsense, clearly mobile games are the future, and will completely obsolete console games. this is because it makes money, nobody wants to play console games!
I got this and have never even played it lol. I just play flick homerun =) It's so addicting!
With technology evolving so rapidly and new games coming out all the time, people who play a game lose interest pretty quickly and move on to other games. We have acquired a short attention span because of technology. Not saying that's a bad thing, but it proves that companies need to keep innovating in order to keep old customers and attract new ones.
i still play the game and love it!! just wish they had more words for the free versions
