[prMac.com] Helsinki, Finland - Intervisio today is pleased to announce the release of Youreka, the newest social party game for iOS devices. Youreka is a game that shows how well friends really know themselves and each other. The game is free through the Apple's App Store with an option to purchase more content via in-app purchase.
Youreka is played with Pass 'N Play mode between 3-6 players. The game gives players a set of words which describe different personal characteristics. In each turn player need to evaluate how well these specific words describe themselves and their friends. Some words are a bit provoking to generate discussion and debate in good spirit. "And this is the best about Youreka. Friends start to openly talk how they see themselves and each other." says Antti Seppanen, CEO of Intervisio.
Inspired by the tremendous success of the original tabletop version developed by Orangino AB, Intervisio decided not to stop at what has been already accomplished but to win the hearts of the iOS users as well. The developers complemented the game with a set of features that make it a perfect choice for social party gamers looking for smooth experience in iOS devices. Youreka's close integration to Facebook also enables players to share the game results in their Facebook profile to continue the discussion online.
