(October 8, 2015 – Burbank, CA) – Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, America’s No. 1 favorite television personality, Ellen Digital Ventures and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the release of “Psych! Outwit Your Friends,” a new interactive party game now available worldwide for FREE on the App Store for the iPhone, iPod touch and Google Play for Android smartphones.
From the creators of Ellen’s incredibly popular “Heads Up!,” “Psych!” brings friends and family together for an exciting spin on game night where players make up fake answers to real trivia questions and compete against each other to guess the correct answers among the group’s outrageous fakes. Each player then wins points for every friend they ‘psych!’ into thinking their fake answer is the real one.
“I can't wait for everyone to play this new game. It's going to be the most fun you ever had with your friends. I'm so excited for you to try it, everyone who downloads it is invited to dinner at my house. Psych! I'm sorry. I couldn't resist, since that's the name of the game. It was also the name of my great uncle's cockatiel. Psych! I'm kidding again. The cockatiel was named Camille,” said talk show host DeGeneres.
Developed by Sequence, “Psych!” will be Free to Play with three free category decks available at launch, including Word Up!, Is That a Fact? and Movie Bluff! Nine additional decks will be available for purchase at $0.99 each.
