TeamLava has just announced the launch of their newest game, Treasure Story. As the sixth game in the “Story” franchise, Treasure Story allows players to explore a virtual island hunting for buried treasure and rare artifacts which they can trade for in-game prizes. The game is also set up to allow users to create islands of their very own and then share their progress with friends via Facebook Connect. If this all sounds suspiciously like Farmville then congratulations, you understand exactly what the game is all about.
The freemium title is free to download, but in-game boosters are available for purchase for those who want to progress through the game a bit faster. Also, treasure hunters are rewarded for sharing with friends, so expect to start seeing a lot of Facebook messages pop up about how your buddy Dave just dug up some fake rubies and wants you to help him get a better metal detector. Just when you finally stopped tending crops and milking cows another game comes along to crush any hope of spending your free time actually interacting with other human beings face-to-face. Don’t sweat it, the whole idea of actually to talking to someone in person and not via Facebook is totally overrated anyway.
TeamLava is promising new content for Treasure Story every week, so once the apps has its hooks into you it’s going to be very hard to get them out. In a way, we almost feel evil giving you the iTunes link so you can got and download what’s sure to be a massively addictive game, but then we never claimed that we weren’t evil so I guess there’s no need to apologize. So go ahead, click the link. You know you want to. No one’s going to know, it can be our little secret…
