Animal Party, Digital Chocolate’s Millionaire Boss Top This Week’s List of Emerging Facebook Games

Tribal Crossing’s 6waves Lolapps-published Animal Party tops our list of emerging Facebook games this week while a new game from developer Digital Chocolate makes its debut at number two after almost two weeks of life on the platform.

The success of Animal Party highlights the growing field of social game publishing. Just this week alone, publisher 6waves merged with developer Lolapps to expand its offerings with the Fliso game engine while RockYou CEO Lisa Marino explained her company’s expanded approach to publisher-developer relations. It seems as user acquisition costs rise and quality of gameplay becomes more sophisticated, more indie developers feel the need to partner up to get their games out there.

Millionaire Boss is a corporate culture simulation with almost sarcastically cute graphics and music that characterize the world of paper-pushing as colorful and upbeat. Players take the role of an up-and-coming CEO tasked with staffing an office and assigning busywork. Completing goals nets the player soft currency to spend on upgrading workers and customizing the office. A hiring friends system makes up the bulk of the social interactions, but friends do not have to agree to join the game in order for a player to use them as office workers. Full review to follow.
