Adults-only multiplayer party game Awkward now available for Nintendo Switch

It’s Quiz Time developers Snap Finger Click today release their new relationships-testing party game, Awkward, for the Nintendo Switch console. Available via the Nintendo eShop, Awkward is priced at £9.99 / €12,99 EUR / $11.99 USD and is rated PEGI 16/ESRB Mature.

Playable by between one and six participants, cooperatively or competitively, Awkward’s fiendish questioning will test relationships and disclose secrets that participants never intended to reveal.

At the end of the 1800s the government declared a global ban on this legendary card game due to an increase in bar fights, divorces, and family feuds.

Awkward is the ultimate test on finding out how well friends, couples, and family know each other. Players are asked to answer increasingly uncomfortable questions in secret, while their companions try to guess the outcome.

HEATED CLASSICS! Pineapple on pizza, yay or nay?
RELATIONSHIP CHOICES! What part of your partner do you prefer, body or face?
HORRIBLE DILEMMAS! If you could only save the life of one, would you choose a 1-year-old or an 18-year-old?

Featuring the original banned questions, as well as new content written by Danny Gallagher (Quiplash, Fibbage 2) & Joanna Haslam (Buzz! Quiz World, It’s Quiz Time). One to six players can join in, with a huge selection of game modes on offer.

Awkward is the ultimate party game featuring over 5,000 questions. Do you dare to find out how well you really know each other?

Awkward is a simple proposition on paper, inviting players to answer a series of questions about themselves, choosing between two distinct answers. The twist comes when fellow players must guess how the first one responded each time, testing how well they know each other. Guess correctly, and the game recognises and rewards the compatibility.

Sounds pleasant enough – but its makers’ advice is to play Awkward at your own risk, as across a series of rounds its questions grow significantly less trivial. Don’t be surprised if Awkward teases out some uncomfortable truths, sparking (hopefully good natured) debate amongst its players.

The ultimate party game for players who are up for spilling the most revealing of beans, Awkward offers Nintendo Switch owners the freedom to enjoy pad-passing fun both at home in front of the TV, and on the move thanks to the Nintendo Switch’s handheld mode.

Awkward is also available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam). On these platforms, streamers can take advantage of Awkward’s Live Mode, offering built-in compatibility with Mixer, Twitch and YouTube. Players can host a session for up to 500,000 concurrent viewers, and the audience can interact via the chat to guess the host’s answers. Whether playing locally or streaming online, Awkward will also display how the rest of the world answered each question. Please note that Live Mode is not currently available in the Nintendo Switch version of Awkward.
