"Camelot" fans will get to experience gaming through Starz Digital Media's newest facebook app, "Camelot: THe Game." The game is free to play and gives players a unique gaming challenge that combines resource management and turn-based battle/combat game mechanics. The game immerses its players into King Arthur's Camelot as lord of their own hamlet.
Fans should register on Facebook at apps.facebook.com/camelotgame and enter the password "Merlin" to be eligible to play the sneak preview.
The Beta launch of the new game kicked off this week on Facebook, following this past January's successful "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" social game, which surpassed one million monthly users last month (according to appdata.com).
“Fans of social gaming, the ‘Camelot’ original series, and the successful ‘Spartacus’ Facebook game, are sure to love ‘Camelot: The Game,” said Marc DeBevoise, senior vice president, digital media, business development and strategy for Starz Media. “The action, adventure, and challenge of this game is unmatched in the marketplace today and is a beautiful complement and extension of the Starz Original series.”
Special events and game content tied to the Ten-episode airing of “Camelot” will be rolled out during the series run.
Starz Digital Media’s Camelot: The Game social media game was co-developed and co-published with Sarbakan and Large Animal Games in association with GK-tv, and is the latest digital extension of a Starz Original series. Starz Digital Media, the digital and on-demand distribution arm of Starz, has produced several innovative games and apps based on Starz Originals for PCs, iPhones, iPads and other devices.
