LOS ANGELES – MARCH 26, 2020 – Today, Netmarble Corp has officially stepped into the world of casual games as KOONGYA Draw Party, the company’s all-new, real-time social drawing quiz game, has officially launched on the App Store and Google Play. Players can work together to complete a never-ending quest to solve a series of entertaining and challenging quizzes – all through the power of creative drawing!
Now launching in 152 countries on iOS and 146 countries on Android, KOONGYA Draw Partyserves up a buffet of playful quiz-drawing entertainment with over 4,500 quizzes for 11 different languages as players of all types can come together online to create, rate, and share an endless variety of quirky pun-inspired drawings with friends near and far. The game maximizes the fun of language play with localized drawing quizzes for each language, real-time solving with other players through rooms, character collecting and player growth, custom quizzes players can create and share in their own neighborhood, and much more!
At launch, the game will feature three engaging gameplay modes:
- Stage Mode – Players will go through a series of levels and solve quizzes with creative drawings. Prizes and KOONGYAs (KOONGYA Draw Party’s mascots that give skills, which generate in-game boosters) can also be collected in this mode.
- Party Mode
- Players can enter into playrooms online where up to four players can join in, take turns drawing and guessing each other’s quizzes.
- Private rooms can also be made, where up to 100 players can join upon request. The room creator can use their microphone to communicate with other players.
- Adventure Mode – This mode allows players to discover player-generated quizzes and location-based drawings within their own neighborhood.
