Here’s a description of the game from ESRB:
Content Descriptors:Cartoon Violence, Crude Humor
Rating Summary:This is a party/puzzle-platformer game in which players engage in a variety of tasks and mini-games using a selection of words/actions/modifiers/characters. Mini-games include fishing, racing, and using drones to deliver items. Players can type in random nouns and adjectives to create different word combinations that trigger comical scenarios. Some games/tasks prompt players to use “cartoony” weapons (e.g., bazookas, bombs, swords) to deplete the health meters of other characters. Characters can also eat/bite other characters when prompted by a modifying word/trait. A handful of areas contain enemy characters (i.e., skeleton warriors) that will attack players if approached. During an eating-contest mini-game, players’ character may vomit if they consume too much food without swallowing; a comical “gagging” sound effect is heard, as well as brightly-colored green vomit.
