Facegame is a simple game made for learning the faces and names of fellow employees. The game will give you a picture of an employee and you have to select the corresponding name from a few choices. Facegame is a great game for all kinds of organizations where it’s becoming increasingly harder to remember all the faces.


This game was developed as our internal application mainly designed for new employees to get familiar with the names and faces around Futurice. Facegame was open sourced as a part of the Summer of Love program.
