SOUNDOUT

SOUNDOUT® "A Game for All Talks of Life" is a phonetic card game developed by Twisted Diction.


OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:


Sound Out, simply put, is a game of pronouncing words with sounds instead of spelling them with letters. Many people hear that and say, “ Duh! That’s what talking is!” And yes, of course it is! But what many fluent English speakers forget, and most any English learner’s know well, is that spelling and pronunciation are often wildly different.

Spelling games have long been a staple in the tabletop gaming community. Sound Out offers a parallel twist on some old classics by simply playing with the other half of language - the spoken half, rather than the written half.

There are five different gameplays featuring Classic, Crossword, Time Challenge, Rummy and Go Fish, making Sound Out a great game choice for a variety of occasions. Each of the gameplay options share the same fundamentals of competing for points by combining individual sounds to “sound out” words.

It’s so different than any other spelling game that almost every game tester has said the same thing: that it “rewires” their brain. Are you ready to throw spelling out the window? With Sound Out the alphabet goes to the wind, just say it and play it!

BRAND IDENTITY


PATTERN

The Sound Out identity is based on abstracted sound waves, referencing the "sound" in "Sound Out" and the phonetic alphabet. The branding system is constituted of nine illustrations that make up the Sound Out pattern – appearing on all collateral – in static and animated form. This pattern manifests in the word-mark and peripheral visuals.

WORD-MARK

A bespoke mark evokes the act of speech through its form and snappy animation.
