Okay, who out there can honestly say that they have never played "Farmville?" No show of hands? It doesn't surprise me! For several years it reigned as the numero uno online game in internet history. It's just too damn addicting to quit once you get started...and let's be honest, in today's terrible economy it just might be the only way that most of us could ever afford to "own" a farm in our life, lol!
Remember that famous episode of "Dr. Phil" where it even resulted in a marriage breaking up? An otherwise seemingly "normal" American housewife became so addicted to playing it every day that her desperate husband and children finally gave her an ultimatum: get on Dr. Phil's show now for counseling or this marriage is finished, period!
But even among it's most devoted players, one has to wonder just how many folks actually know WHO created this iconic online game? The answer to that question: MARK SKAGGS!
November12, 2013 will mark Skaggs' fifth anniverary as Zynga's "Wonder Boy" creator of what is unquestionably one of the most popular games in internet history. Furthermore, it's "offspring" Farmville II is quickly gaining an equally devoted, worldwide following of players who adore its improved graphics and more "user-friendly" features that expand upon the original "parent" game.
For anyone who has wanted to learn more about that elusive, brilliant and innovative creator of this runaway internet sensation then you are in luck!
