Maxis has announced that it has launched Spore Islands, a new Facebook game which invites users to compete against each other in the ultimate survival of the fittest.
"In Spore Islands, players get to invite friends in their social web to play on their island, so creating this game exclusively for Facebook was a natural choice for us since they are the largest and most popular social platform for games," stated Caryl Shaw, Senior Producer, Spore Islands. "What sets Spore Islands apart from other social games is that it offers a different kind of social interactivity where a player's gameplay experience is directly affected by the choices and decisions their friends make. It's an ongoing game, so player's creatures and islands will be active at all times, whether the player is logged into Facebook or not."
In Spore Islands users choose their own island to live on, create creatures and evolve them, invite friends to live on their island, and send their own creatures to friends' islands, all in a quest to dominate as many islands as possible.
