New from Breakthrough Entertainment and Little Guy Games is Picnicface Playground, the fully customizable and shareable app that lets you hang out on the moon with comedy troupe Picnicface, set your co-workers on fire or see how your best friend would look with a pompadour. With Picnicface Playground you can create your own fully customizable characters using photos of you and your friends, arm them with a wide array of crazy props and activities, and watch the fun unfold. Regularly priced at $ 0.99, Picnicface Playground will be available as a free download on February 7th.
Here’s a look at how the Picnicface Playground app works:
Players have access to a large variety of environments, costumes, props, abilities and voices – some free with the download and some available through in-app purchase — and will be able to program and watch their characters do and say silly things. Once complete, users can share their creations through Facebook and Twitter.
Picnicface Playground is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices running iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
