San Francisco, California – Lights, Camera, Action! Local mobile entertainment company Showbucks announced today that it will launch Action! – a revolutionary, patent-pending social video app that will save human interactions from the enslavement of anti-social drone mobile apps. Action! is the first cross-platform social video acting and word guessing game. Pick a word, act it out in front of your phone’s camera, send to your friends then challenge them to watch and guess the word you are playing. You can talk, sing, dance & flirt. Action! is Charades gone Gangnam Style!
Showbucks’ Founder and CEO Michael Yuen envisions people playing games with humans again versus playing with virtual farm animals. In this vision players take turns acting and guessing. Parents will be playing with their children, acting out characters from classic movies and TV shows. Teens will be acting out popular songs and dance styles with their friends. Actors and comedians will be promoting movies and TV shows by playing characters and scenes from their upcoming movies and shows. Musicians will be playing with their fans. Founder Yuen believes that social apps should enable people to interact with other human beings face-to-face and promote real social relationships.
