Family Fued Inbound

Jan 29, 2009
Ludia and FremantleMedia Enterprises announced today that Ludia will create video games based on one of the longest-running and most successful game shows, Family Feud. The exclusive, multi-year deal will result in games across major platforms including PC/Mac, console, iPhone and iPod touch.

“We are excited to create compelling game play experiences around Family Feud that new and existing fans can engage with across multiple platforms,”
said Alex Thabet, Founder and CEO of Ludia Inc. “This deal also helps round out the Ludia portfolio of game show video games, which we believe to be a category with fantastic potential.”

The Family Feud games willfeature all of the favorite elements of the show as played on television, with two “families” playing against each other in a contest to name the most popular answers to survey questions posed to 100 people. The game will be rendered with a dynamic redesign of familiar aspects such as the scoreboard, face offs, strikes, stealing and ‘fast money’ rounds. The Family Feud game will also incorporate connected gaming elements to make it easy and entertaining for friends and family to play and interact together. Both single and multiplayer game modes will be supported, as well as reward systems to fuel the competitive fun between families, and player avatars that can be customized and personalized.

“After more than 33 years, the Emmy-award winning Family Feudis one of the most iconic and enduring game shows on the air,” said Olivier Delfosse, Director, Interactive, FremantleMedia Enterprises, licensor for the program. “Given our tremendous success with The Price Is Right, we are very pleased to have Ludia create another fresh offering of video games for fans of Family Feud, game show enthusiasts and wider audiencesalike.”
