Zygna Unveils Farmville 2: Farming in Three Dimensions

Farmville was the game that put Zynga on the map and roiling in social media riches.

Now, with Zynga’s stock dropping, Zynga’s announced Farmville 2. Maybe then it’ll right the company’s dropping stock right side up.

The detail were scant, but Zynga’s selling point for making the Farmville sequel was that it’d be the company’s first game in 3D.

I don’t know if the 3D will bring back the golden days of Farmville, when the game peaked at 80 million active players.

Zynga hasn’t announced a date for Farmville 2 just yet. But there’s definitely one thing to get excited about: being told you’re out of energy or coins… in 3D.

    Perhaps I am misunderstanding this. Surely it doesn't mean 3D as in the current 3D trend right and just means a standard 3D game oppose to 2D. I simply can't imagine anyone who would want to play it projected in 3D. What casual gamer even has that set-up? What casual gamer would go out and pay for it just to play Farm-ville in 3D?

  • Simplicity of Farmville is what attracted most of its player base, making it 3D is a bad move if you ask me.

    Call me crazy here, but according to all the screenshots I've seen, farmville IS already in 3D. Granted it's isometric 3D, using sprites most likely, but it's a form of 3D none-the-less.

    No-one ever said that SIM City or Transport Tycoon wasn't in 3D, and they have a similar appearance.

    I think they mean polygon 3d. I'm not a fan, but if they do this using html5, it should be interesting from a tech perspective.

    so zynga is resorting to another marketing gimmick, so that it can survive for more time,
    it won't be long before people would realise that all you produce is nothing but life wasting bullcrap

    The most useless company releases yet another pointless game. It's success is due to it's ability to exploit the brain's reward system by using classic and operant conditioning. This is a lovely for us humans to rejoice and gaze upon this marvelous use of resources.


    FUCK YOU ZINGA YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT.

    Amen.
