Organized Crime may come true on mobile devices and Facebook (if possible)!
By Mike Thompson From Inside Social Games
Developer PerBlue is following up sleeper location-based hit Parallel Kingdom with Parallel Mafia, a new social location game for iOS and Android devices that lets players establish a criminal empire in a cyberpunk future.
Parallel Mafia casts players as future criminals and gang members, staking out territories of real world cities they occupy. Parallel Mafia's territories overlay Google maps, much like how Parallel Kingdom works. In Parallel Mafia, players establish buildings (“Fronts”) they must maintain in order to gain money and extend their influence in the game world. Other players can visit these Fronts and perform jobs to earn money; if the player who owns a Front doesn't maintain it regularly, they risk losing control of the building to another person who visits it more often.
Although the game won't initially launch on Facebook, Brand Director Forrest Woolworth says there is a strong possibility it could come to the social network. Woolworth notes that a Web version of the game depends on its success on mobile devices.
