[prMac.com] Fuquay Varina, North Carolina - A Ghost in the machine? Get ready to make contact with the spirit world! Mad Monkey Militia Announces their fourth app - "SpiritPad: The Oracle" for the iPad has shipped to the App Store. SpiritPad: The Oracle is a group experience, an entertaining multiplayer game with a supernatural twist! Have fun or take it seriously and set up your own Seance! Light some candles and invite your friends over for an evening of fun and mystical mayhem!
Not to be confused with the toy Ouija, Spirit Board is a real talking board, a digital connection to the "Other Side". Now with the power of the iPad, you and your friends can bridge the gap to the spirit world! One person places one hand on the Digital Planchette onscreen, the others touch any one of the "Spiritual Conduits" on the corners/edges of the board to channel their collective spiritual energies into the board. Over time the planchette will begin to move with your hand and you will see messages spelled out. Track the letters and try to decipher the messages and their meaning with all your friends. SpiritPad: The Oracle will get your friends talking and maybe even freak them out so you can separate the wimps from the curious! Who or what will you make contact with?
* Realistic SpiritBoard interaction
* 6 Spirit Boards to choose from
* 7 Planchettes to use to channel the spirits with
* 2 mood setting music tracks
The iPad is the perfect device to digitally emulate a "Talking Board" and have it be a shareable experience with friends.
