Julie Babb / AWKWARD HUG presents BOUT

Julie Babb and the team at Awkward Hug will joins us to present their new project Bout!

Leading comedy brand CollegeHumor and indie game developer Awkward Hug teamed to launch Bout which pits players’ photography skills and cleverness against their friends’ for the chance to win in-game coins and earn bragging rights. With two ways to play—as a competitor or a judge—players race to submit the most creative pictures in response to Bout prompts, resulting in an endless stream of amazing, funny photos. Bout is available now on the App Store.

As a Bout judge, players will select an inspiring phrase or category from a list of prompts such as “Something Contagious,” “Art Made From Desk Supplies” or “A Guilty Pleasure,” and post the challenge to friends playing the game. Users can also play by submitting photos to their friends’ open Bout challenges. The first five submissions make up a completed Bout, and are in contention for the win. Images are revealed anonymously to the judge who selects their favorite as the winner, and the identity of the players is revealed to all.

In addition to being easy to play, addictively fun and creatively inspiring, Bout is also a social platform. At the heart of the game is a feed of completed Bouts—ultimately a series of photos of and by players and their friends—complete with in-game comments and “♥’s.”
