Photos have been given an invigorating new lease of life thanks to the power of social media. What hasn’t been achieved before however, is an effective use for them in gaming.
Ubisoft have looked to change all of that with mobile game FaceUp however, which centres around the use of selfies – giving you the chance to do picture battle in a fun guessing game.
This Snapchat and Facebook inspired title assists players in breaking records set in-game, while letting them brag about their awesome detective skills through Facebook.
The aim of the game is to properly identify the game’s multitude of catalogued moods and expressions through the charades-like usage of your friends’s selfies.
You won’t be looking over endless realms of mugging for nothing either, with in-game unlockables including stickers to extra game modes.
This alongside several planned updates will look to keep things fresh, with the game also playable online and offline.
It’s certainly an interesting experiment, and one which puts gaming at the forefront. Bonus modes include a combo option which tasks you with incorporating multiple facial expressions - to make it even harder for your friends to guess what faces you’re attempting to pull.
The range of expressions listed in the game is sure to keep you amused, featuring everything from imitating rabbits to portraying politicians – so it’s time to get your game face on. Literally.
If you’re a fan of inserting cosmetic touches onto your selfies, like through the use of emojis and stamps, FaceUp even has that aspect covered too.
