Hamburg, August 2, 2012. An update to the south sea browser title, Lagoonia , introduces rankings, as well as customizable profiles, into gameplay today. Rankings show player standing in several aspects of the game, including “collecting, harvesting & producing”, “planning & building”, “neighborly help”, “population” and a handful of others. All rankings can be sorted by friends only or a global list, and are available as weekly, monthly or “all time” numbers.
The newly implemented profiles allow south sea adventurers to get to know each other by writing about themselves, and choosing an avatar. This is intended to increase player interaction and team work. In the near future, players will be able to upload personal images as well.
The focus of Lagoonia is on relationships – both between characters and players, and players with one another. One can plan and create many things that make the island livable and fun: from a warm fire and a cozy shelter, to useful fish nets, and later in the game lighthouses and waterslides. The game is free and no download is required – the only technical requirements are a browser and an internet connection. The game is currently featured in the Google Chrome Store.
