CollegeHumor and indie game developer
Awkward Hug have teamed to launch
Bout, a new free gaming app for iOS devices. A social photo-taking game, Bout pits players' photography skills and cleverness against their friends' for the chance to win in-game coins and earn bragging rights. With two ways to play—as a competitor or a judge—players race to submit the most creative pictures in response to Bout prompts, resulting in an endless stream of amazing, funny photos. Bout is available now on the
Bout turns taking photos into a competition amongst friends by giving players an opportunity to put the pictures they're already snapping with their mobile devices to use. As a Bout judge, players will select an inspiring phrase or category from a list of prompts such as "Something Contagious," "Art Made From Desk Supplies" or "A Guilty Pleasure," and post the challenge to friends playing the game. Users can also play by submitting photos to their friends' open Bout challenges. The first five submissions make up a completed Bout, and are in contention for the win. Images are revealed anonymously to the judge who selects their favorite as the winner, and the identity of the players is revealed to all. Coins are awarded at the completion of each Bout—ten to the winner, two to other players—and can be used to refresh the challenge prompt list, start additional Bouts, unlock themed challenge bundles and create custom Bouts. Additional coins can be purchased through the app.
