DROPPING A LINE IN FARM KINGDOM FISHES UP DELICIOUS REWARDS

Hamburg, Germany--January 20, 2012-- Mail.RU Games, the publisher of internationally successful online games such as Legend: Legacy of the Dragons, Allods Online and Juggernaut today unveils the latest details of the first mini-game in Farm Kingdom http://farmkingdom.net/,their newest social game. In addition to working their own farms, players tend their animals, pass the time until their harvest ripens by playing mini-games and help their friends to whip their gardens into shape.

The first mini-game players will encounter is just a click away from their main farm, and has some of the most compelling game rewards.  Feeling relaxed?  Take a stroll down to the Fishing Docks, where players can enjoy a fishing game that's easy to begin but challenging to master!  The ever-helpful Tutorial Turtle is on hand to teach new visitors how to reel in their dream catch and embark upon a fantastic journey of fishy fun.

"We spent a lot of time fine-tuning the challenge and enjoyment of the fishing game, and we're excited about the player feedback we've received from our Open Beta," says Malte Werner, Product Manager of Farm Kingdom. "The only problem we have now is the whole office is addicted to fishing and the competition is fierce as we wait to see which GM will land the biggest fish!"

Choosing the right combination of rod, line, lure, and bait is critical to entice a variety of fish including Grass Pike, Rudd, and more!  Players must wait for a strike marked by the ring of a bell, then keep the fish in their sights to lure them in.  Learning the behavior of each variety of fish takes time but is rewarding: some fish follow a very specific swimming pattern while others will jerk the line left and right frantically, so knowing the difference is key to catching the biggest trout around. 

Freshly caught fish can be used in a variety of cooking dishes, or players can simply sell them to fund a bigger fishing tackle box.  Successfully catching a fish not only gives you experience, but also increases your Angler profession.  The more skilled at fishing a player becomes, the more options become available to them including upgraded fishing spots, the ability to produce nets, and buy better tackle.  Compete in monthly rankings for best individual fish as well as most caught.

So Much To Do in a Fairy Tale World

What else is there to do after the maize is harvested, all the animals are fed and even the last tree has been felled? In the four Farm Kingdom mini-games players can cook meals, construct buildings, go fishing and dig for resources -- all to receive terrific rewards.

Creative chefs can cook up a storm in the Farm Kingdom kitchen, preparing many wonderful dishes - from pancakes to goose soup. Anybody in search of a little relaxation after a stressful day at work in the real world can head straight to the fish pond. Big fish are jumping, just waiting to be caught! Remember, however: fish will only go for the right bait. Players with the blood of an architect running through their veins can turn their dreams into reality by constructing new buildings. From a new deck to a large pigsty, they can saw, build and hammer anything they like. Old-school arcade fans can indulge themselves by playing the mining game: searching for precious metals requires sleight of hand, good planning and strategy. Advancements in the game, such as helping out on  friends' farms, will be rewarded with additional gold coins and experience points.  To make your own farm stand out from the common crowd, there are many cute animals and exciting construction projects. Accessories like a huge barbeque grill or sun loungers give your territory that personal touch.

Those eager to discover the pleasures of farm life will find enough space for their own farm and a whole bunch of new friends at http://farmkingdom.net/
