Two-time Parent’s Choice award winner Faces iMake, developed in conjunction with internationally acclaimed artist and educator Hanoch Piven, is now available on Rounds hangout platform.

Today, Rounds, a live hangout platform combining video chat (communication) and social apps (entertainment) into one fun real-time consumer experience, announced that Faces iMake will be joining their portfolio of games. Faces iMake, along with Rounds' 30 other games, will be offered to their growing community of 5 million Facebook users.

Faces iMake is an extraordinary tool for developing right brain creative capabilities and expanding awareness. It has also been recognized as an intuitive tool for children with disabilities which enables them to express themselves visually. The artistic game allows users to create unique pictures and explore new ways of thinking.

Created by iMagine machine™, Faces iMake, is a fun and thought-provoking application for people of any age. The application originally developed for the iphone and ipad, is said to develop creativity in children and adults by uncovering alternative ways of looking at everyday objects. In its simplistic form, the game allows you to take everyday objects and create faces and collages out of them.

The application has won multiple awards in its iPhone and iPad versions including the Silver and Gold Parents’ Choice Awards, The Famigo Family app award, Top 10 apps on iDevice and many more, and has had major coverage over the last few years since its launch in 2010. “We are excited to have iMagine Machine, a top notch development company, and Hanoch Piven, a world renowned artist, author and educator, as our latest partners.” says Dany Fishel, Rounds Co-Founder and CEO. “We hope that by adding this award winning application to our portfolio, users will be encouraged to be creative while they are having fun and hanging out on Rounds.” Andrea Dinnick, iMagine machine™ partner says - "It's so exciting to watch the amazing
Faces iMake grow in its popularity and reach. More and more people are discovering that Faces is a starting point for creativity. With Faces anyone can start experimenting and creating and there are literally no limits to what everyone can do. It's fantastic for Faces to join Rounds."

About Faces iMake:
Faces iMake was developed with renowned artist, children's book author and educator Hanoch Piven and is based on the highly acclaimed creative workshops he has conducted all around the world. Piven, whose art has been featured in publications such as: Time, Newsweek and The New Yorker, says about Faces iMake: "I wanted Faces iMake to be a virtual workshop that reflects what happens in the real world when we compose pictures using objects. All significantly creative ideas are born from playing, therefore Faces iMake is a game as much as it is a creative workshop." For more information, visit http://www.facesimake.com
