Around the world with Playfish and Geo Challenge!

September 22, 2008

It’s only a month or so ago that we launched Pet Society on Facebook – and what a month that has been. The game has already attracted over 1.5 million players, it’s made it to the Facebook games top-15 by activity and we’ve loved the amount of excellent feedback and suggestions we’ve received from our players. And we’re not done yet – the team at Playfish London is still hard at work fixing issues, adding features and completing the Stadium feature for the game so keep that feedback and those ideas coming!

Meanwhile, it’s time to announce the beta release of our next title – Geo Challenge from Playfish China – our Beijing Studio.

It’s been fun to see how many of you have appreciated the learning element in our top-10 titles Word Challenge and Who Has The Biggest Brain?. We wanted to expand on this a little further in our next game and explore a competitive game around knowledge of geography.

Geo Challenge is designed for friends to compete and show off their knowledge of the planet. You travel the world together with our friendly tour guide and get to test your knowledge of countries, cities and flags in a collection of minigames. The game rewards speed as well as knowledge and accuracy and gives you a geography knowledge rating – or geo score – between Agoraphobe and Geography Guru with ratings like Bus Driver, Sailor and Airline Pilot in between. We’re still tweaking things and thinking of features to add, so all feedback is much appreciated.

So, if you have a moment and feel like putting your friends to the test, give Geo Challenge a try on Facebook! You never know, you might even learn something new at the same time?
