The Grinns Tale tops this week’s list of emerging Facebook games

Nexon’s The Grinns Tale once again appears on our list of emerging Facebook games, taking the top spot with 25,139 MAU, a 169 percent gain.

Correction: We reported The Grinns Tale was developed by 6waves. 6waves is publishing the game, but it was developed by Nexon.

Nuukster’s Birdopolis took the No. 2 spot with 20,000 MAU, up 50 percent. Uken Games’s Forces of War was also up by 50 percent with a 20,000 MAU increase, taking the No. 3 spot. Arvara’s wine-themed RPG Chateau took in 18,919 MAU, a 1,750 percent gain that snagged the No. 4 position. Finally, No. 5 went to Idle Media’s Backyard Buddies, which brought in 11,193 MAU for a 127 percent increase.

The rest of the list featured smaller percentage gains, the majority of which were under 20 percent. However, three games had gains of 10,000 MAU for 25 percent increases: FreshPlanet’s Spa Life (likely benefitting from the success of SongPop), Verve Inc.’s Diner Garden and Colorcube Games’s Vida Rock 2.
