Zynga’s Unleashed event that took place earlier today at Zynga’s headquarters in San Francisco introduced a barrage of new Zynga game titles, a new Zynga platform with Project Z and Ztags, and a new way to play some of your favorite games including FarmVille!
New Zynga Games
Keeping up with the competition and hoping to stay ahead, Zynga’s studios are constantly producing new social games and today they announced the titles of even more fun games including the latest Ville game, CastleVille which we are most excited about. Read below for a recap on all the new Zynga games “coming soon”.
- Zynga Bingo
- Hidden Chronicles
- Dream Zoo
- Mafia Wars 2
CastleVille hails from the Zynga’s Lone Star State studio in Dallas and it is the latest “Ville” title. It takes place in a medieval world with fantasy and enduring characters. It’s movie quality looks (is that Tangled?) and music (75 piece orchestra and full choir backed original soundtrack) Zynga describes as the “most beautiful game we’ve ever made”. In CastleVille you can “get your happy ending” by building the castle and kingdom of your dreams.
Zynga Casino’s Zynga Bingo
Hurry up and tell Grandma, Zynga releases yet another Casino title, Zynga Bingo! It joins Zynga’ Casinos most popular Poker game, Zynga Poker. We can’t wait to see what the Big Z was able to do with the already natural social aspect of Bingo transformed into social gaming. What we already know? Think- themed bingo rooms such as “Pirates Paradise” and “Vegas Lights”. Your chips from Zynga Poker will work in Zynga Bingo too with a promise to make it easy to find your casino friends while they are playing. Bingo!
A new genre for Zynga, Hidden Chronicles is your soon-t0-be favorite memory challenge game. Think the adult version of Highlights with all the fun of Where’s Waldo. Beautiful graphics for you to stare at and scope out all the hidden objects all in a social game setting.
The twist is that there will be a social game setting which means you can play with your friends and work up a friendly competition. Throughout your game play you will unlock the story of Ramsey Manor which is your home base in Hidden Chronicles. There at the Manor you will also be able to meet and interact with characters and customize the Manor. Interesting!
Dream Zoo is a zoo themed game that will be available at the Apple App Store. You can build your own virtual zoo in the palm of your hands (literally) as you collect some of your favorite zoo animals. Recruit your neighbors to help you take care and feed your animals and help them out as well.
Mafia Wars 2
Zynga’s first real sequel Mafia Wars 2 launched yesterday. Mafia Wars 2, yes it needed its own new game and new title is now available on Facebook and Google+ games. Get your mafia on now!
New Zynga Platform & Project Z
As you already know, most of Zynga games can be played on Facebook, some Google + and mobile devices. Zynga wants to continue to move forward with making more games mobile accessible. They also want to give us a new promise of what they call “instant social” with Project Z, which they describe as a new Zynga social game service that will be enabled by Facebook Connect where players can “connect with others who are playing at that very moment”.
Project Z seems like another another step towards more Zynga independence from social networks. As of yet very little details have been released about Project Z and what exactly it means. We can expect to learn the nitty gritty of Project Z as we approach its launch. However, what you can do today, is sign up and reserve your gamer tag! Your gamer identity tag, called “zTags” will allow you to travel effortlessly between your favorite Zynga games on the Project Z service. They also reveal that Project Z will “be coming soon to a browser near you very soon”.

Zynga & Facebook Mobile
Recently Facebook launched its mobile apps and mobile site and along with this Zynga announced three HTML5 large scale games that will be coming very soon to Facebook’s mobile app site. Remember FarmVille Express? Yes! A new way to play FarmVille on your mobile device better than ever. With the help of HTML5 technology the mobile games will boast faster load times, smoother game play, and better responsiveness. The other Zynga titles that will be built using HTML5 besides FarmVille Expres are Zynga Poker Mobile Web and Words With Friends HTLML5.
