San Mateo, CA and Amsterdam – November 3, 2022 – Zynga Inc.(Nasdaq: ZNGA), a wholly-owned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), and CoolGames, an Amsterdam-based HTML5 games development company, today announced the launch of Farm Merge Valley on Facebook Gaming.
Farm Merge Valley is an agriculture-themed merge and building game enhanced for
strong social play. In the game, players manage their farmland including growing crops, harvesting, raising livestock, completing orders, and expanding their farming territory. The game gets bigger with every discovery made and players are able to receive train tickets to visit the farmlands of their friends and family. Players can assist their friends with tasks that will earn both them and their friends rewards in the game. Players are also encouraged to invite their friends directly to help clear land and other obstacles in their way.
“We are thrilled to partner with CoolGames to launch Farm Merge Valley on Facebook Gaming,” said Scott Koenigsberg, Zynga’s Chief Product Officer. “CoolGames understands how to create groundbreaking, high-quality HTML5 games with years of experience launching games on Facebook Gaming. Farm Merge Valley expands the possibility of HTML5 through its social and building hybrid model and we cannot wait for our global audience to engage with the game.”
“Merge is one of the fastest growing game genres in mobile and it has been a great experience to work on this directly with Zynga, who have been pioneers with many legendary titles in this space,” said Laurens Rutten, Founder and CEO of CoolGames. “We believe that there’s a vast untapped potential for deep and high-quality merge games on HTML5 game platforms too.”
