FOR ONLINE GAMERS!
Game Now Available Online, Featuring Nearly 1,500 Relationship Questions
July 13, 2009 – iWin, Inc., a leading developer and publisher of online casual games, has partnered with FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) to launch Family Feud™: Battle of the Sexes, it was jointly announced today by Peter Traugot, Executive Producer for iWin, and Olivier Delfosse, Director of Interactive for FME. Now available online, the 7th installment of this wildly popular Family Feud casual game franchise is based on the Emmy Award-winning, legendary syndicated game show.
“In deciding to make another Family Feud game, the motivation was obvious: every time I sit down to play, I am baffled about what women think,” said Traugot. “This is a great way to create some friendly competition between the sexes while maintaining the same Family Feud fun fans have come to expect.”
“Family Feud is one of the largest and most recognizable game show franchises in the world and we are thrilled to be releasing a new game,” added Delfosse. “The theme for Family Feud™: Battle of the Sexes should resonate well with its fan base, and players of this game are going to be in for a challenge – and lots of laughs”
Family Feud: Battle of the Sexes features nearly 1,500 brain-busting questions based on the opposite sex. iWin has also made the multi-player version Family Feud: Online Party available for those who are looking to bring the fun to more people. New questions will be added twice a week to ensure the fun is always fresh.
The Family Feud series of games stays true to the show’s format: 100 people are surveyed for each question, resulting in hilarious and oftentimes unforeseen answers. Examples of questions include, “why hasn’t he called when he said he would?” or “what did 37 percent of people surveyed say ruins a passionate moment?” With a variety of questions spanning the dating and relationship arena, Family Feud: Battle of the Sexes will provide fun for hours on end!
Family Feud: Battle of the Sexes is exclusively available on iWin.com, where it can be downloaded with a free fifteen minute trial. Customers of iWin's iCoins service can purchase Family Feud: Battle of the Sexes and all other Family Feud games for 50 percent off.
