To celebrate the month of ‘Movember‘ digital agency Mark Sydney and Google Australia have  partnered to launch a series of moustache-themed games to help promote the charity and its quest to raise money for men’s health issues..

The series, Movember Games, is a Google Chrome web app that keeps participants motivated during the month of Movember with a collection of  four face-tracking games set to roll out each week of the event.

Face plant. Using a webcam, place your face in the centre of the game screen to get started.

The project is a collaboration between M&C Saatchi’s digital agency Mark and digital production arm, MAKE Gamers, who say developing the motion-sensor game was a worthy challenge.

“It’s been a labour of love for the entire team, while being a delightful way to raise awareness for Movember and Google Chrome,” Mark Creative Director, Hamish Stewart says.

“I hope people have as much fun playing the games as we did making them.”

Week one of the games series (now live) is Lame Mo, inviting beginner moustache growers to strengthen their mo by lifting a barbell using only their top lip. To get in the game participants must download  Google Chrome (free), have access to a web camera and, of course, their face!
