gamigo releases Jade Tales, its first Facebook game

Hamburg, 3rd March 2010– Hamburg-based gamigo AG, one of the leading publishers of MMORPGs in Europe, has entered the world of social media games. The first step was made with the recent release of Jade Tales, a fantasy RPG developed by Crafty, which can now be played in its entirety on Facebook and already has an active community of followers.

Patrick Streppel, member of the executive board, said "With more than 6.7 million users in Germany alone, Facebook is of course also extremely important for the gaming industry. Naturally, it is only logical for gamigo, as one of the most successful gaming brands in Europe, to enter the realm of social media networks. The first step has been made successfully with Jade Tales; more games will follow in the near future.”

Jade Tales whisks players away to a hidden world in which the village of the Amazons must be protected from Viking invaders. To protect their home, as well as to earn gold and experience points, there are daily quests for players to complete. Players can log in to the game easily via their Facebook account and connect with friends to watch their progress, send them gifts, or challenge them to a duel. They can also band together with friends to go into battle against evil. Release date: already released.
