Smiley Face Game Markers

Gleeful Smiley Face

This is a series of smiley faces made for a game called "1 in 7," in Puzzles and Prototypes class this past summer. The games teaches you what it is like to try to live on $1.25 a day in a developing country. This is the amount the World Bank has designated as extreme poverty. 

How does someone get by on $1.25 a day? By playing the game, it is revealed that the extreme poor manage to live on $1.25 a day by eating only two meals a day, which is borne out by research. This means that over a billion people are hungry every day, almost every day of their lives. 

The smiley faces help the player keep track of their health. You can use these smiley faces however you want, no attribution required.

Are there other expressions you would like to see?

I can't decide which skull I like best, sad, neutral or with teeth. Which one do you prefer?
