FaceMaker is an educational game for children ages 3-8 developed by DesignWare. The game allows players to create a variety of silly faces by combining different parts together and also includes simple mini-games.


The game screen in FaceMaker features a large face shown on the right side of the screen with a menu along the left. Players can select from the menu different options for mouth, eyes, ears, nose, and hair; several choices are available for each and the selection made will be shown on the face.

Once players have a face of their liking, players can choose to either program simple animations the face will perform or can play a Simon-like game. When programming a face, players can have the face perform actions such as wink, smile, stick out its tongue, wiggle its ears, pause, or cry. The face will perform all the actions the player enters in order. In the mini-game, the computer chooses a series of actions; player's need to type in the actions the face performed in the same order. As in the game Simon, the face starts with a single action and each time the player responds correctly adds one more to the list. The game ends when the player responds incorrectly.
