Everyone knows how to play charades! ...and here's the online version.


The site was built to increase searches made in Windows Live Search through playing charades. Whilst playing the game a user would see clues appear in the form of search results.


The woman in the screenshots would move around, talk to you and generally interact with the game while you were playing. Certain charades also had special videos linked to them where she would do something different.


Each charade was created as a node in an XML file, which also stored the associated clues and videos. This made it extremely easy to update the game with new charades.
