'The Hunger Games' come to life (virtual life, that is)(Read article summary)
A Farmville-like game based on Suzanne Collins' 'Hunger Games' trilogy will be debuting on Facebook March 23
Soon it will be possible to immerse yourself in the world of “The Hunger Games” -- without actually being required to fight to the death as are so many of the characters in in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy.
A new game titled “The Hunger Games Adventures” – created by the gaming company Funtactix, Collins, and the team responsible for the movie adaptation of the book – will be coming to Facebook on March 23, which is also the release date for the movie adaptation of the first book.
The game will include the first map of Panem, the country where the “Hunger Games”trilogy takes place. The game will be playable on Facebook on laptops and netbooks, according to information given by Funtactix to The Huffington Post, but because the game uses Flash software, “Games” fans won’t be able to play the game on smartphones or iPads.
