Get Bob! (a re-engineered social deduction game) by PartyPak Games is an interactive mobile game that you can play face-to-face with friends or online with strangers. Get Bob! offers the best of both worlds — a video game or a strategy board or tabletop game.
I am pleased to collaborate with PartyPak to share information about Get Bob!
Get Bob! is currently in the crowdfunding phase of a Kickstarter campaign. Game creator, PartyPak Games, offers some fun perks! A $25 pledge grants the backer ten premium game licenses for unlimited gameplay. Yes, you and your nine favorite people can play Get Bob! once it is ready! Is $25 too much of a commitment? A $3 pledge allows the backer one premium game license!
Get Bob! Game Summary
I am sharing the following plot summary from PartyPak as I think it is a helpful description. I always enjoy learning more about the creator’s vision.
Get Bob! is a social deduction game for mobile devices. It’s a game where friends get together and lie to each other shameless to win. Sound fun? It is! … until your best friend votes to have you assassinated.
Your phone or tablet executes a vast array of customizable rules while handling the game mechanics so you don’t need cards, a game board, or a referee. You can play anytime, anywhere. Just whip out your phone and the fun begins.
At the start of the game, players are randomly divided into three allegiances: pacifist, exterminationist, and Bob. Each team needs to accomplish different goals to win. Each player uses deduction, observation, guile, and special powers and items to coordinate victory with other players. (Source Get Bob Kickstarter Campaign)

What Makes Get Bob! Special
I play games with a few friends once in a while. It is a fun way to socialize while exercising the brain. I occasionally play casual video games on my tablet or phone. Get Bob! looks like a fun, immersive experience that is also social. I like that you can play it with others in the same room or with strangers online.
Strategy games are my favorite. I also happen to love games that involve voting and campaigning. Maybe it is the geek in me! But Get Bob! sounds challenging and fun. The game includes private chat features, this sounds potentially dangerous when playing with friends.
Finally, I like that the Get Bob! is contained entirely on your phone. It is easy to forget to bring card or board games. Since most people carry their phones, this is perfect for impromptu games.
About PartyPak Games
There are currently four members in our team: three programmers and an artist. All of us have full-time jobs elsewhere so this has been a side project until now. We would really like to take this to the next level by quitting our jobs and committing to this for real. That’s why we are asking for this Kickstarter. In case it doesn’t work out, we don’t want to get in trouble with our current employers so please understand if we don’t identify ourselves (yet). Thank you!
