Funzio’s hardcore strategy/role-playing game is now live on Facebook, after it debuted on March 1 for a 45-day exclusive on Google+.

Even though Kingdom Age is live on Facebook, Funzio has yet to officially announce the game’s launch on the social network. The company’s official website still only links to the G+ version.

Kingdom Age is the second social game from Funzio. It features similar strategy/RPG mechanics to the developer’s first social game, 2010’s Crime City. Even though hardcore strategy titles don’t bring in the same sort of user numbers that more casual titles like Zynga’s “Ville” games or King.com’s “Saga” titles, Crime City was a success. The game peaked with 7.3 million monthly active users and 1 million daily active users, but its traffic has dwindled since April 2010. It now holds steady around 1.6 million MAU and 150,000 DAU.

Kingdom Age’s arrival on Facebook could also mean Funzio is looking to take the title cross platform. It would be a logical move, based on how the company took Crime City to iOS and Android from G+ and Facebook. Even though the Facebook version of Crime City has declined in popularity, the mobile version is still going strong. The iPhone version of Crime City is currently the No. 31 top grossing iPhone app, according to our traffic tracking service AppData.
