If you're a fan of Inside Social Games, odds are you've heard about our Facebook version of the game, Champions Online, launching Wednesday, the 18th. We're very excited about the launch and the great feedback we've received so far! According to AppData, the game already has over 700,000 users and is ranked ninth on the top rising Facebook app list for today (as high as fifth). We're hoping these numbers are just a prelude of what's to come.
If you are curious about what the game is like (and are unfamiliar with the original version of Champions Online) here is a quick look at the game's story line:
"You are a brave superhero, aka a Champion, who helps protect the world from evil wrongdoers. The Sinister Syndicate, a gang of some of the world's most dastardly villains have come together to destroy the world! With the guidance of Socrates, the all-knowing supercomputer, you travel the Champions universe; from futuristic Millenium City, to frigid Canada, to Monster Island, Atlantis, and to many more fantastic locations, in an effort to put an end to the Sinister Syndicate's diabolical plan. Complete heroic tasks, acquire superpowers, and save the world one villain at a time... it's just a day in the life of a Champion!"
Through this game, you can see that we've built an extremely robust platform that allows us to work collaboratively with our partners and introduce both existing and new brands to our users. We are bridging the gap between social networks and traditional game developers to open up the Facebook doors for players like Cryptic.
