SongGrab is a "Massively Multiplayer Online Music-Playing Game". You hear music and see a picture of yourself in a webcam view. You have to guess which out of 4 titles you are currently listening to. You choose by waving with your hand over the title you think is right. It is so multiplayer, you can theoretically play it with an unlimited number of people. The login is implemented via Facebook, so we have the user's picture and name. For a more social experience we implemented achievements and scores which are published to a user's timeline. If somebody is alone, it is possible to invite friends via Facebook as well.
