Description

Fun photo challenges fostering friendship and curiosity.

History

aglimpse: friends is a fun multiplayer photo-sharing game that lets you break away from everyday life. Prompted by Inquisi the Cat, you'll start your journey of reconnecting and discovery by challenging friends to capture their everyday life with letter prompts as a guide. Developed by Jenn Sandercock, aglimpse: friends is now available on iTunes App Store and Google Play for free.

Take pictures or dig through your photo archive and then caption and share them with friends. To keep things interesting, challenge your friends to do the same with letter prompts! For example: "Hey friend, I've taken a picture of my new puppy! Tag, you're it! Find a picture that begins with the letter "Y"!"

It's a simple game with infinite possibilities for building friendships, discovering the world around you and your loved ones, and adding excitement to your everyday life. Plus, the more you play, the more packs you uncover — taking challenges to a whole new level. No matter your age or the reason for playing, you'll wonder where aglimpse: friends has been all your life.

Gameplay

Start the game by taking a picture of something around you or using a picture from your photo archive. Once completed, challenge a friend to do the same by prompting them to send you a photo of something that begins with a specific letter. As you continue these personal photo exchange challenges, you'll get a glimpse into your friends' everyday world, learn more about them, and stay connected. Keep challenging yourself and your friends by completing games and earning newly themed discovery packs, making each exchange a bit more challenging.
