Zynga Releases Mobile 3D Party Play

partyplace.jpg

Party Place is Zynga's first venture into the 3D mobile gaming world. With it, any dud can turn into the best of party animals. Available on iTunes and Google Play, the game started off a movie and morphed into a game that allow players to design their characters, then dance, play music or even do battle with other partygoers. We guess the freebie is one way of not having to be the designated driver for the weekend.

Join MTV Power of 12 - Play Fantasy Election

powerof12.png

MTV's Power of 12 campaign is working on the 45 million 18 - 29 year-olds who can make a real difference in the upcoming elections. A recent study from Gallup claims that group has become apathetic and many don't even register to vote. As a result, you will soon be able to take a break from mudslinging rhetoric to play MTV's Fantasy Election '12 but you can register now.

Like fantasy sports games, you build a team of candidates running for president, the Senate and House. Gamers play against others and get points for registration, watching debates and publicly support candidates. The invite-only beta release should be up by June.
