“SOUNDS FUN WITH MIKE EPPS” INTERACTIVE AUDIO GAME FOR ALEXA PROVIDES HILARIOUS FAMILY FUN FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Los Angeles, Calif. (December 19, 2017) – Comedian and actor, Mike Epps is the latest celebrity personality to break into the interactive audio space with the launch of a new voice activated game, “Sounds Fun with Mike Epps.” Created in partnership with interactive audio company, Ground Control and co-creator Kyra Robinson, “Sounds Fun” is available to enable for free starting today, December 19, as a multi-player capable Alexa Skill. The release of the game coincides with the availability of the Amazon Echo Buttons, which also begins shipping today, just in time for the holidays. The game will also be available on Google Home and other audio platforms in the coming weeks.
Well-known for his stand-up comedy and performances on the Starz series Survivor’s Remorse and the HBO Emmy-winning biopic Bessie, Mike Epps is also a master at making hilarious sound effects with his voice. The sound effects included in “Sounds Fun” will range from the obvious to the absurd, such as a “lawn mower” or “helicopter” to “Donald Trump getting a haircut.” Every day a new and different sound will be released, making each game a unique experience for the players. Epps will also serve as the game’s judge, providing a comedic mix of friendly encouragement and snarky banter.
“Growing up, I didn’t have many games. I had to use my imagination and to my family I became known as the king of sound effects,” says Mike Epps. “Years later, when I would play games with my children and they would guess the sound effects I was making, I had a lightbulb moment: This could be a fun, hilarious and interactive guessing game! When the opportunity arose to partner with Ground Control to make this into a game for Alexa, I jumped at the chance. I hope everyone will enjoy “Sounds Fun” as much as my family does.”
“Sounds Fun with Mike Epps,” launched in conjunction with Ground Control’s sports trivia game releases, such as “Fourth Down Football Trivia with Philip Rivers,” “Buzzer Beater Basketball Trivia with Karl-Anthony Towns” and the previously announced “Full Count Baseball Trivia with Buster Posey.”
