[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Broken Thumbs Apps, a family-owned and operated iPhone application developer based in Cupertino, California, today is pleased to announce the release of Emily's Girl Talk 1.0, a collection of four unique charming story-telling games for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Emily's Girl Talk features the classic M.A.S.H. (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House) and the hilariously unpredictable Lemon, as well as the fortune-telling Cootie Catcher and the exciting Love Game.
Emily's Girl Talk also includes an in-app journal that automatically records entries for reading and sharing later as well as a sticker album that displays the cute stickers earned while playing the game. In addition, Emily's Girl Talk incorporates beautiful artwork and memorable characters, delightful background music and sounds, and numerous other special features that enhance the imaginative world of Emily's Girl Talk.
As a personal touch, the title is named after a co-founder of Broken Thumbs Apps and many inviting characters accompany the player as they create entertaining stories. As with the company's other iPhone apps, because Emily's Girl Talk was designed to be a pleasant and whimsical game to be shared with friends and family, Emily's Girl Talk makes it easy and fun to share stories on Facebook or Twitter or via e-mail.
"Emily's Girl Talk was inspired by my favorite games that I played with friends at school," said Emily Maples, co-founder and head of product development of Broken Thumbs Apps. "In designing the game, we focused on creating a charming and delightful experience for both fans who grew up playing these games as well as those who are discovering them for the first time. I am excited to share this special project with people around the world and I can't wait to hear everyone's stories!"
