That’s You! is in These Lists

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to That’s You! in the following lists:

Compete on the Couch

Raucous, unbounded, exuberant, all-age competitive fun is something video games are known for. Find the right games for your family and you can create important and healthy ways to let off steam, excel and persevere as you sit next to each other on the sofa. These games can play a big part in raising children to be magnanimous in victory and generous in defeat. Kids love competing online, but the games here focus on battling in the same room. Played with multiple controllers and a shared screen, they offer challenges that require real skill and give everyone a chance to rise to the top of the family pile.
 

Play And Connect

Online games are great because you have a world of opponents to take on and defeat (or be defeated by). But beyond the competitive element of these games are often a strong sense of community and camaraderie.

Players enjoy making new connections in these games, as well as connecting with wider family and friends. Listen to the chatter while children play these games, and you hear as much talk about homework, television, YouTube or what's happening in the world as who to shoot in the head next.
 

Talk To Win

Most video games are about what happens on the screen. Or that's what it's easy to assume. However, the best multiplayer experiences are as much about interactions between the other players in the real world. Whether you are set next to you opponent on the sofa, or chatting to them online, deciding whether to trust them and how best to get the better of them is a lot of fun.

The games in this list, take this aspect of all video games, and make it a central part of the play. It includes games where you need to pause the action and talk about who's the murderer, like Among Us. Or they require you to talk to each other to decipher how not to die like Keep Talking and Nobody Dies. Then there are games where you need to talk to co-ordinate your strategy like Wilmot's Warehouse and Conduct Together.
 

Get Children Talking

It can seem that all children do these days is stare at their screens and play video games. We worry about screen time and what the violence, addiction and gambling is doing to their brains.

However, along with screen time comes many other things we can celebrate. All kids do these days is talking to other. All kids do these days is learn the skills of rhetoric and debating. All kids do these days is develop their social confidence.

It sounds a little far fetched, but watching my kids play the new “hit” game Among Us I’ve realised these are exactly the sorts of things they are really developing when they are sat staring at their screens.

Here are some great examples where you need to talk, and talk intelligently and intelligibly, to do well in the game.
