As we predicted earlier Sega is going to release PictoImage overseas and in North America. The game is similar to Pictonary and somewhat similar to Agetec’s LOL, which is scheduled to come out at the end of this month. LOL’s rather unique feature is its only multiplayer game. Players pass questions to one another and vote on who has the most amusing answer. In traditional Pictonary style Pictoimage has players guess what one person is trying to draw. Pictoimage has a single player mode where players try to guess the drawing from a database of 300 pictures.
However, unfortunately for Agetec, LOL will only be released online while Pictoimage will have a full retail release when it comes out in August. In terms of sales Pictoimage is destined to be the clear winner. If Chibi-Robo developer Skip just had some kind of single player mode LOL we could have had a real battle.
On the other hand LOL will probably become an obscure collectors item in the future remembered for its rarity. Collectors take note?
