PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 21, 2012 - The Hat Game allows Android™ users to get closer to their friends and family by drawing on their shared knowledge of celebrities, mutual friends, historical persons, or fictional characters. The Hat Game is based on a traditional parlour game that's still widely enjoyed by students and families, and brings it up to date. Now The Hat Game is convenient to play and easy for new players to pick up anywhere, on their smartphone or tablet computer.

The Hat Game is the first game released by Cambridge-based independent games studio Shadowburst ( http://shadowburst.com ). Shadowburst founder Dan Hulme said, "At Christmas time, people spend a lot of time with their families, so I wanted this game to be something the whole family can enjoy together. Using a smartphone or tablet means you can take the game wherever your family travels, whether that's around the dinner table, on a bracing walk along the seafront, or sheltering from the weather in a cosy caravan."

In The Hat Game, four or more players form into two teams and choose famous people and put their names in a virtual hat. They then take turns describing names picked from the hat to the other players on their team: as many as they can in 60 seconds. The game can be played by young children as it only requires minimal reading skills, and the free choice of names means it can be used to teach children about historical figures or literature. The user interface is designed so that new players can easily understand how to play. This makes The Hat Game accessible to older players who might struggle with or be uninterested in most mobile games. The game uses hot-seating so that only one phone or tablet is needed for the whole game, but it also supports playing on multiple devices connected wirelessly with Bluetooth.

The Hat Game is now available to download from Google Play™ ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shadowb... ) and supports Android versions 2.1 and above. Google Play and Android are trademarks of Google Inc.
