A Pictionary-like game from Jackbox Games for your mobile phone, tablet, iPad or what have you, released as part of the first Jackbox Party Pack. At the start of each game, players are given a (rarely straightforward) prompt to draw a picture for. After the drawing is done, players guess the prompt for each drawing; after all guesses have been submitted, all of them are then shown alongside the correct prompt. Guessing correctly earns both the guesser and the artist points, but choosing somebody else's guess scores them points instead. A sizable part of the fun comes from the limited color palettes and the lack of an erase function, making drawing pictures for certain prompts an exercise in hilarity.
A sequel, Drawful 2, was released as a separate game. In this version, you can make your own episode for strangers to play (you make the prompts) and strangers who know your room code are freely permitted to join the audience.
Drawful provides examples of the following:
- Art Shifted Sequel: With (slightly) more art options in the second Drawful, you may or may not get an Art Evolution with said players.
- Deliberately Monochrome: You are allowed to draw with two colors (likely suffering from a limited palette as it's usually two complimentary colors), probably because a wide pallet to pick from is more time consuming as the game is timed. As in,"I can't decide whether to use fuschia or aqua marine".
- Intentionally Awkward Title: Invoked with some of the Toilet Humor categories.
- Lemony Narrator: A female example. She says things like "your drawings are a mess. I love it." Since this is Jackbox Games, she is also quite crude.
- Playing Pictionary: This game practically is Pictionary, so hilarity related to guessing is bound to ensue.
