Catchphrase – A sitcom style comedy game


Catchphrase is a dialog-driven comedy game made as a research project for Fall 2012 at Stony Brook University.

In Catchphrase, you play as an actor on a sitcom who is missing his lines.
You act out various scenes with your fellow actors until it comes time to choose the right line (your Catchphrase)!

The audience then reacts to the Catchphrase judging it based on how well it matches the scene.
