Walking Thumb’s New Blabcake

Walking Thumbs’ new Blabcake Messenger App lets users chat with their friends using expressive animations and cute interactions. This social app is often described as emoji chat, but actually users have cute berry avatars. Individual Berries can be personalized with color, hair and mood, and they can be customized by adding clothes and accessories, so each Berry is unique.

Chatters can animate their berries, with a variety of actions, from emotional reactions (a broken heart, a sleepy face, or an angry scowl, among others) Users can interact with the friends’ Berries too, by sending them hugs, blowing flower petals, smiling at each other, or other friendly interactions. Or turning their friends into animals or cupcakes, whatever. They can express not-so-friendly emotions too, but even the table-flipping sequence is pretty cute.
