We’ve all been there. It’s the end of a long day, looking to kick back, relax and watch a movie. You begin to scroll endlessly through the thousands and thousands of available titles. Do you immerse yourself in “The Godfather”, “Citizen Kane” or one of the hundreds of other Hollywood classics? Or maybe you’re leaning towards a more modern, big-budget superhero movie?
Well if you’re like me you’re not looking for the classics, you’re looking for the best of the worst. I’m talking about bad movies. Movies so bad they’re good. Movies that appear to have been made by an alien who has never seen a movie. Bottom of the schlock barrel. You know, good things!
When creating our previous Xbox One title, Freedom finger, me and my lead developer Mark Zorn discovered that we share a love for these cinematic outcasts, and during the long, tedious hours of quality control, we felt like those bad movies were the only thing keeping us sane. mind.
And the only thing better than watching a bad movie is making fun of them. Adding your own jokes, one-liners and comments in progress. If you’re a fan of “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” “RiffTrax,” or “Cinematic Titanic,” you are no stranger to the subculture born out of this late-night hobby.
When it came time to think about our next game, the idea of making a board game where you could dive into bad movies? is the game, well, that seemed like a no-brainer. And so, What is Dub ?! was born.
What is Dub ?! is a multiplayer board game where every overdubbing player misses the dialogue of hilarious B movies, terribly outdated PSAs, and bizarre industrial films, with their own witty (or just plain silly) dubs. Their voices are then pitted against those of other players in a one-on-one comedy clash. Players – along with up to 6 members of the audience – then vote for their favorite voiceover!
We also wanted gamers to be able to hear their jokes live, so that all of your replacement voices played seamlessly in video clips using text-to-speech. You can even insert sound effects to really sell the shine of your dub.
With over 300 video clips to play with, What is Dub ?! takes ‘bad movie night’ and turns it into a fast-paced interactive multiplayer game that friends and family, both local and distant, can enjoy together.
What is Dub ?! supports up to 12 players and while local play is always ideal, we know it’s not always possible. Luckily, streaming from your Xbox One is incredibly easy, and connecting is just a few clicks away. Speaking of simplicity, we wanted to make entering your voices simple and straightforward. In the game, players can use any browser compatible device to enter text, add sound effects, and vote. No controller needed.
The best part? What is Dub ?! is available today! We couldn’t be happier to share it with all of you. So next time you’re on the hunt for a bad movie, grab a copy of What is Dub?!, invite a few friends and let yourself be tempted by the most spectacular failures in cinema. This is the worst time money can be bought.
