Draw Something 2 leaked by Ryan Seacrest
Recognize Randy and Mariah?

Recognize Randy and Mariah?

On Monday, Ryan Seacrest sent out a tweet leaking the existence of Draw Something 2. This would be the sequel to the Pictionary-esque game that soared to the top of the charts only to drop fast and hard, leaving millions of dollars and many jobs lost in its wake. Seacrest's tweet said, "I somehow convinced them to give me #DrawSomething2 first… this may be the best Mariah & Randy have ever looked." At the bottom of the tweet was a very well drawn picture of American Idol judges Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey in the Draw Something format.

After that tweet, another one was sent out by Dan Porter, Zynga VP, who confirmed Draw Something 2 by saying, "Thanks! So excited to confirm #DrawSomething2 is coming w/ new ways to draw & connect." Porter come over to Zynga after the latter purchased OMGPOP for $180 million about a year ago, just to grab Draw Something which had captured 20 million users in just 5 weeks. The transaction at first appeared to work out, but all of a sudden, people stopped playing the game. Zynga's stock dropped from $14 to $2.40 and Zynga ended up laying off people and closing offices. The last we heard about the company, it had partnered with a British on-line gambling company to stay alive.

Now, with a new logo, and a new television show based on the game (which Seacrest is supposedly hosting and producing), let's see if lightning can strike twice.

Draw Something was fun for about a month. Hence, ABOUT a month.. Just like Ruzzle...it's going to die off soon.

Are they still clueless as to why people stopped playing DrawSomething? Gee, could it have had to do with the dozen pop up ads you had to fight through to get through a single turn?

.....nah, that can't be it.

This game was awesome until Zynga bought it... after that it was just ads, ads, ads. No new words until the ads have already made people sick of the game. Multiple connection issues where it doesn't always sync and just crashes the game. Hell, most of the time the game wouldn't even load.

Everybody knows Zynga botched it with all those ads thinking it was facebook, they should have fired those that forced all those ads. The real question is "did they learn from that?"
