Perfect World Entertainment’s luxury cruise simulation tops this week’s list of emerging Facebook games as recorded by our traffic tracking service, AppData. The rest of our list reflects a mix of genres and game types ranging from Arabic-language farm sims to TV show tie-ins.
Two new entries from developer/publisher 6waves that catch our eye are My Country at number two and Camelot: The Game at number 14. The former is a city-builder game developed by innoWate under 6waves’ publishing branch while the latter appears to be another collaboration between premium cable network Starz and 6waves — like Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, only Large Animal Games doesn’t appear to be involved this time. Camelot the TV series stars Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, and Eva Green in a retelling of the King Arthur legend. The show recently concluded its North American season and will roll out to other territories throughout the summer, which may impact Camelot: The Game’s overall growth.

As for any original ideas the game may have, stay tuned for our review.
