"Canon" Indy Jones Facebook Game Tomorrow

A new Indiana Jones prequel is coming in the form of a Zynga Facebook game, rather than a movie, reports Kotaku. In what sounds like something out of a South Park parody, they say the game known as Adventure World will be renamed Indiana Jones Adventure World following the addition of Indy-themed content, and the story is to be canon. Word is the new game goes live tomorrow, but the new content will roll out over several weeks. Kotaku offers a write-up on the original Adventure World, saying it "seemed like an Indiana Jones riff from the start," and that it "is different from other Zynga games because it is story-driven and plays a little more similarly to a classic action-adventure video game than a simple farm or city-management game, letting the player control a main character who uses whips and machetes to cut through jungle, fight snakes, deactivate traps and help local people, while questing for rare treasure." As for the business model, they note: "Like the other major Zynga games, it entices people to click and play for a few minutes per session before waiting to earn more energy to keep playing—or by paying for that energy to keep playing immediately." A subsequent story offers video of the game. Thanks nin.

I love the three Indiana Jones movies. Great adventure stuff, great atmosphere.
Choosing to ignore that movie number four ever existed? Good man.
