As reported by Inside Social Games, Big Fish Games has brought their anti-pollution MMO Faunasphere to Facebook.
The game, which was first launched (and is still available) as a standalone web client (complete with Facebook Connect), allows users to take on the role of a Fauna, who is tasked with completing quests and cleaning up the world’s pollution. As you progress, you’ll collect items that can be used to personalize your own individual Faunasphere, and can eventually begin to breed more Fauna from a possible 50+ million variations of new creatures.
Will O’Brien, Big Fish Game’s vice president of social games hopes that the game’s app status on Facebook (rather than continuing to rely solely on Facebook Connect integration) will help the title continue to grow in popularity by giving more users a chance to play the game where they already play games, and therefore feel comfortable.
To be clear, the browser-based version of Faunasphere and the Facebook app differ only in the URL you’ll be seeing at the top of the webpage. They connect to the same virtual world, and can be played in the same way. It all boils down, then, to personal preference. To give the new application version of the game a try, head over to its page on Facebook.
