Zynga announced new games across a number of platforms. Including a new 'Ville game, the just-launched Mafia Wars sequel, a hidden object game and a series of mobile games available, some of which will be available on Facebook's mobile platform as of tomorrow.
This is a new genre for them, but one that's grounded in the very essence of game play. Did you read Highlights growing up? Remember Memory? Concentration? Consider this the grown up but still fun, digital version.Hidden Chronicles combines memory and skill and wraps it in a beautiful and fun social game. Seriously you could just load up a game screen and stare at it. They have.
Hidden Chroniclesis about mystery, discovery, and a little friendly competition. Like snowboarding or making scrambled eggs, it's easy to learn but hard to master. As you move through boards discovering thousands of hidden items, you'll also unlock the story of Ramsey Manor, your home base in Hidden Chronicles. You'll meet and interact with unique caretakers there, and have the ability to build, decorate and customize the Manor.
And what, you ask, makes this game social? Well, you can play with your friends of course. Challenge them to particular scenes and compare scores, cooperate to build out your personal estates, and if you're feeling generous, hide gifts on your friends'game boards. Be on the lookout for Hidden Chronicles.
Zynga and social was its name-O. But they're not messing around with Zynga Bingo, which along with Zynga Poker, the largest social poker game in the world, will now makeup the newly created Zynga Casino franchise. You've played bingo before right? This was a social game before people actually used the word social. They're talking friends, fun, and the indescribable but oh so awesome feeling you get when you hit it, before anyone else, and you're the winner. BINGO! So break out your digital daubers, choose from one of many themed bingo rooms (Pirates Paradise! Vegas Lights!), and grab your friends. You're going to have some serious fun with Zynga Bingo.
And because they'll both be part of Zynga Casino, your chips will move with you from Zynga Poker to Zynga Bingo. They're also going to make it easy for you to find your friends while they're playing, no matter which "table" they're sitting at in either one of the games. Zynga Poker is available on Zynga Casino, and keep your eyes peeled for Zynga Bingo. Coming soon!
Built by one of our talented studios in the Lone Star State, Zynga Dallas, CastleVilleis their latest addition to the "Ville" franchise. Enter a rich medieval world with an engaging storyline, just a touch of fantasy and memorable and playful characters. CastleVille is the most beautiful game they've ever made, and that's evident in the scenery, the animation, and the playful and lively characters that make this game sing.
The characters you meet and the decisions you make in CastleVille affect the mysterious locations you discover, and the rare items you reveal. Like a beautiful snow flake or an artisanal brick oven pizza, no two games are the same.
And one last thing that makes CastleVille special the music. They're bringing players an original orchestral soundtrack, recorded in Seattle with a 75-piece orchestra and full choir. It's the first time this has ever been done in a social game, and not to get all sappy on you, but the music gives them chills.
They can't wait to show you what they've been working on, but you'll have to wait to play. Check out the game's Facebook page for updates on when you can build the castle and kingdom of your dreams.
Zynga also spent some time characterizing HTML5 game FarmVille Express — which goes live tomorrow on Facebook's mobile platform. It's a trimmed-down version of the FarmVille mobile experience that allows players to harvest crops on the go, and potentially complete some quests.
