3G Studios Announces the Celebrity Look-Alike Avatar Contest for The Dating Game

 

Reno, NV - May 5, 2011 - Paying homage to the pedigree of celebrities that appeared on The Dating Game throughout its television days, 3G Studios launched today the Celebrity Look-Alike avatar contest for players of The Dating Game ( http://www.datinggame.com) now available on Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Friendster. Players have the chance to earn in-game prizes of points and hearts by creating - and voting on - avatars in The Dating Game that closely resemble some of the famous celebrities that appeared on the TV series, such as Farrah Fawcett, Tom Selleck, Michael Jackson, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many more.

Once players are satisfied with the appearance of their celebrity avatar, they must post the avatar to The Dating Game fan page on the social networking site that they frequent. After doing so, other players can vote on the best avatars by trying to guess which celebrity the avatar depicts. Players who guess correctly will be rewarded in-game points that can be used to host games, win "dates" by giving more sensational gifts and snazz up their own avatars. A Grand Prize of 10 hearts, (premium currency of The Dating Game) , and 1500 points will be awarded to the best celebrity look-alike avatar. Additionally, only on Facebook, the avatar that receives the most "likes" will win five hearts and 750 points.

About The Dating Game for social networks:

Based on the popular TV Series of the same name, The Dating Game consists of a main contestant and three hopefuls. The main contestant first answers a series of questions based on his or her personal preferences and then the three panelists must advance through three rounds of gameplay, including Question and Answer, Word Association and Ad Lib to win a 'date' with the bachelor or bachelorette. In each round, the player whose answers most closely resemble those of the main contestant's receives the most points and advances into the next round in the lead. Two types of rewards - points and hearts - can be earned or purchased and traded for in-game premiums, such as virtual gifts and special avatar features.
