Magezine Publishing have launched a new social network site - addyourface.com. Members have racked up huge scores on Tetris and smashed records on the simple game of Pairs.
The new site has been created to break a World record of the largest mosaic of faces. As a twist to make it more interactive, the developers added a few games and scoring system and it's becoming addictive as competitive players clock up huge scores.
Playing games, such as Picture Sudoku, Pair and Tetris has proven highly popular. When you play you score points and earn FaceCash which can then be used to buy upgrade profile features on the site.
"Within hours we had hundreds of members join and the games have been far more popular than we'd imagined" commented David Burleson, one of the site's developers.
Addyourface is aiming to break a world record by creating the largest mosaic of people's faces. It takes a couple of minutes for users to upload their face to the mosaic and choose a FaceSpot which could be next to family, friends or colleagues. They can then use the site as a social network bookmark by adding links to popular sites such as Bebo and Facebook and creating Groups.
"We're sure we will be able to break the world record of faces. People are already starting to spread the word around that there's a new network site in town" explained site developer Richard Housham.
Many more features are planned for development including a dual player Connect 4 game and a blog log.
