Gartic Phone is a free online multiplayer video game in which you have to guess the drawings displayed on the screen. The title has characteristics similar to those of the classic "Telephone" game, such as the creation of art and the need for collaborative work. The game has inspired memes, and a lot of streamers have used the game to interact with fans over the years.


Gartic Phone[1] was released in December 2020, developed and published by Onrizon.[2] The game is a mix of Pictionary and the "Telephone" game (where someone whispers into the next person's ear in a chain, and the group compares the original phrase to what was whispered. See example below). In Gartic Phone, players must create an image based on a phrase, then the following player must guess the phrase based on the image, which the following player must draw, and so on.
