PHOENIX, Arizona – Big Future Media has updated Ask Grandma, available in the Mac App Store. Ask Grandma is a hilarious spin on talking character apps. “Imagine you took the fun unpredictability of the Magic 8-Ball and coupled it with hilarious characters known for their odd take on life. Then you added the technology to ask the character a question and have it talk back to you. Well, we did it. It is called Ask Grandma. For us, graphics like nobody else had, over-the-top voiceovers and laugh out loud humor were our top priority for each character. We set out to create the app you couldn’t wait to break out and show your friends,” said Adam McArthur, co-founder of Big Future Media.
Ask Grandma Talking Character App is one of 4 characters Big Future Media has released. Other characters include:
* Ask Confucius
* Ask Obama
* Ask Bush
“We have two more characters we are about to release. One is a beauty queen named Melissa Maybe. We are really excited for her. The other we are keeping tight lipped on. But, it will be one of our favorites and have a bit of shock value to it,” said Chris Cotty, another founder of Big Future Media.
Ask Grandma and friends boasts hilarious, lifelike graphics from visual artist Amine Slamani, and uses hand picked voice-over artists/impressionists from around the globe. Unlike Talking Tom, where their characters simply repeat what you are saying, Ask Grandma and friends have 25 pre-loaded hysterical responses. Simply ask the character a question and listen as the character answers. And now you can share what you asked and the response with your friends via Facebook and Twitter.
The feedback has been great from people who have downloaded the app. Especially when they get a funny question/answer combo. There is an overall “shock and awe” feel when the character speaks back and you are either frightened or can’t stop laughing. We’ll take either response.
