OTTAWA, CANADA, May 16, 2008—20Q.net is pleased to announce a partnership with Digital Chocolate, the world’s fastest growing developer of games and applications for mobile phones. 20Q fans can download the
exciting new mobile version of the incredibly popular A.I.-driven guessing game on the Digital Chocolate website or on phones from most carriers.
20Q Mind Reader is based on the original online game and includes a variety
of new features. Players can think of anything, answer simple questions, and 20Q will guess what is on their mind in 20 questions or less. Bonus features include an anagram game with over 8000 unique puzzles, Guess It!, a party word game for
2-4 players, stats tracking, and additional hidden features to unlock. With the help of Digital Chocolate, newcomers and regulars of the “addictive and eerily accurate” 20Q guessing game will find more opportunities to rationalize taking
20Q with them, wherever they go!
20Q is an artificial intelligence, a website, a company and a phenomenon that speaks for itself at http://20q.net. Players think of something, and 20Q guesses what is on their mind, in twenty questions or less.
Each time the online game is played it learns a little more. After more than 62,000,000 games played
and half a billion questions asked, 20Q has evolved from an experiment in artificial intelligence into a software development firm that licenses games built on the capabilities of the 20Q A.I.
Inventor Robin Burgener has nurtured this A.I. technology since he created it in 1988. The 20Q A.I. played 2,000 games in the first ten years of its existence. By April 2008, over 60 million games were played. 20Q has
been translated into more than 20 languages, so now more players from around the world can test its knowledge. Handheld versions of the original 20Q Classic (in nine languages), 20Q Harry Potter, 20Q People, 20Q TV, 20Q Rock & Pop, and 20Q Sports
are in stores now, with more specialty versions to come. Check it out at http://20q.net
Licensed to Radica Games USA Ltd., a subsidiary of Mattel, Ltd., millions
of the popular and addictive handheld versions have been sold worldwide. The original handheld 20Q game has won many awards, including the 2006 Toy Industry Association’s Electronic Toy of the Year Award and the 2007 U.K. Toy Retailers’
Association Special Recognition Award.
