Earworm - Become a music legend in this rockin' party game!

Created by VStheUNIVERSE

Earworm is a party game for people who LOVE music! Earworm is suited for groups of all shapes and sizes and can be played anywhere! In everything that VStheUNIVERSE produces, a healthy amount of music is infused into its creation. We developed Earworm for the music-lover, the karaoke rockstars, the band geek, the shower singers,...We made this game for ANYONE who loves music. We know you'll love it too! Players have 30 seconds to vocalize a song to their team using any sound they can muster up with one rule: you can't use any lyrics!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

We said we'd include a free expansion to Earworm if we hit 150 shares of our posts and you managed to blow past that to 162 shares in 2 days! HOLY COW!

We'll be adding a 36-card expansion to every copy of the game. It will consist of 27 KS-backer chosen cards + 9 write-in cards. We will be holding another round of voting after the campaign ends to determine what these 27 cards will be!

This all means we'll still be accepting song submissions in the comments section, so submit songs if you haven't already!

None of this will matter unless we get funded, so tell your friends about the game! Heck, tell your enemies. We're not picky.

Want to continue spreading the word?

You know what to do!

We may have some other fun end-of-campaign social stretch goals to plow through as well. We'll also be updating our stretch goals tomorrow to coincide with the bigger base game. See you tomorrow!

Good afternoon all!

UPDATE: 36-Card Expansion Contest

We're well underway!
We're well underway!

It seems like you all really want that expansion included in the game! We've got 109 shares on our posts which means there's only 41 shares left to go until we add it! Remember, sharing the below posts helps everyone get an extra 36-card expansion in the game! 27 new song cards + 9 write-in cards!

The Third Guilty Pleasure Song!

It's Sam's turn to reveal his Guilty Pleasure song he'll be adding to the deck! His pick is below...

"When I started thinking about my Guilty pleasure song, I knew it had to be one that made me irrationally happy, a song I wanted to sing and belt at the top of my lungs. The year was 2004 and I had just started college. The radio was taken over by “Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson. This song just killed it and I wanted to blast it whenever possible. The production on the recording is awesome, and nothing beats the energy in Kelly Clarkson’s chorus! Hopefully this can bring those high notes previously reserved for the car or shower into the game."

Welcome to Earworm, "Since U Been Gone" by the incredibly talented Kelly Clarkson! It will be added to the deck with a special "Earworm Dev Guilty Pleasure" designation.

If you haven't already submitted songs to be included in the next round of voting, DO IT SOON! Each backer gets to submit 3 songs! Just put them in the comments section of the Kickstarter.

The final voting phase...

...begins TOMORROW! We'll see you around noon CST!

We are SO CLOSE to hitting our goal! LET'S BRING IT HOME!

Want a bigger Earworm deck? We want to give it to you. Here's how...
about 2 years ago – Mon, Apr 16, 2018 at 06:22:33 AM

Hello backers!

Want a bigger Earworm deck? We want to give it to you.

The Earworm campaign ends on Thursday, April 19th at 9:00 PM CDT and we want this Kickstarter to go out with a BANG, not a whimper. We've come up with a fun contest to improve the final product while you help us promote the game and get us to our funding goal!

Let's make this a bigger and better game!
Let's make this a bigger and better game!

We've heard you!

The number one thing we've been hearing from backers is "I want [INSERT SONG HERE] in the game," and "I really wish [INSERT BAND HERE] was included!"

Well, we're gonna take some steps to try and make that happen.

We want to add a 36-card expansion pack to Earworm, consisting of 27 new songs chosen by backers + 9 blank write-in cards.

How to make that happen...

It's simple. If we can get 150 retweets/shares (combined) of the posts below, we'll add the 36-card expansion into the game. We'll be tabulating shares on Twitter AND Facebook, and if we get 150 total retweets/shares then we'll add the expansion. It's as simple as that. Of course, none of this will matter if we don't hit our goal so spread the word!

Will this affect the game at all?

No. We've made some cuts and adjustments on our end to make this possible. The game won't be affected in any way except for being bigger and better. We're prioritizing a more enjoyable game experience and value over everything else right now as the campaign draws to a close and seek to hit our funding goal.

What happens after 150 shares? Could more be added?

We'll see...

What else can I do?

Spread the word! Increase your pledges! If you think this game would make a great gift then pledge more to get a second copy! We also have a few theme song and test deck pledge tiers left so treat yourself and get one of those!


Alright Earybody, we're 72% of the way there, now let's bring this campaign home!


Third round of voting revealed! + 6 days left!
about 2 years ago – Fri, Apr 13, 2018 at 09:26:25 AM

Your selections from round three!
Your selections from round three!

The last round of songs was a real shootout! Lots of close races! There is ONE MORE ROUND OF VOTING NEXT WEEK! If you have not submitted songs already, you get to submit THREE SONGS in the comments section! Get on it!

Six days left...

With six days left in the campaign we're pulling out all the stops! We've got a stream tonight on ONE SHOT starting at 7:30, game nights at Second City happening over the weekend, and funtimes at The Annoyance next week! 

Basically we'll be playing this game and demoing it for everyone possible. We're so excited and can't wait!

We'll also be holding an End-Of-Campaign livestream on Thursday the 19th where we'll be counting down the minutes until the campaign closes so we hope that you'll join us then! We've also got one more Guilty Pleasure song to unveil from Sam, so be on the lookout for that!

What can you do?

SPREAD THE WORD! The first two days and last two days are the most productive for any Kickstarter, and we're spooling up the hype engines to make sure we get this game in front of everyone before we close! 

If you want to increase your pledge and get some other goodies, we've got a few Theme Song tiers left and a few demo decks just waiting to be snatched up by backers. Get on it!

We'll see you tonight on the stream!



Round three of voting is OPEN! + Get the word out!
