McNeill Designs releases beta version of online You’ve been Sentenced! word game

June 9, 2009

Game development firm McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds recently announced that the firm will preview the new, beta version of the online word game You’ve been Sentenced! at Gen Con 2007. Gen Con is the premiere event for over 35,000 gaming enthusiasts from around the country. The annual event, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, is a Mecca for gamers and includes a vibrant exhibit floor with over 5,000 gaming events, celebrity appearances, Anime, and new releases like McNeill Designs’ online version of You’ve been Sentenced!

The online game is based on the firm’s hit card game of the same name. Game play involves the use of pentagon shaped cards containing conjugations of words which players compile into oftentimes outlandish sentences. The game also uses a “Jury” concept. “Forcing players to justify their thinking and explain outrageous sentences makes for some seriously hilarious moments,” says company President Martin Uniacke.

The online version will contain many of the same elements that made the card version so successful. “The online version has both the look and feel of the original, with similar graphics and colors,” says Chairman Donald W. McNeill. “Players can easily manipulate word cards on their screen to create sentences and play is timed. But best of all, players can instantly communicate with one another through a powerful IM function. This allows the online version of You’ve been Sentenced! to retain its most important elements – interaction between players, discussion of one another’s bizarre sentences, and the all-important voting segment.”
