We have not seen a lot of activity on Facebook development end, rarely do I meet or hear about some one who is doing development for Facebook. But then there is always some one waiting to surprise us. White Rabbit an Islamabad based setup has gone ahead and released their first facebook Game Feline Frenzy.
The gameplay for feline frenzy is that you have to throw boots at birds in sky and cats falling from sky, the game is as crazy as it sound yet has a very addictive nature to it. And i loved the tag line.
â€œ Not all animals are lost, sad, different, suffering from chronic loneliness, ridiculously emo, or begging to be caged in your virtual zoo or barn or farm or island or sock drawer.
No, some animals are uber badass. Beware!â€
The good thing about this game is that I did not find it copying or following the foot steps of Farmville and Petsociety (two of the famous games from Zynga and Playfish respectively) the game has a very cute and evil touch to it, I had intended to try is just for the sake of evaluating it but ended up playing it for about half an hour before i realized the time(oh and i reached level 3 :D). It has that addictiveness to it, and i did not realize hitting cats with boots was so much fun and i hear there are radio active elephants in later levels.

Why facebook is a big deal ? Here are few numbers just to see the market size, as of today Farmville (itâ€™s a facebook game) has 81 Million Active Users face book has its own pretty lucrative statistics http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics with 400 million active users where in comparison iPhone will cross 50 million user mark somewhere in 2011.
The effort is led by Hassan Baig who is a LUMS and Duke Grad, with substantial experience on Wallstreet as an investment banker. He has written on TechLahore (his intro also comes from there) these two article really tell how deep his understanding for Social Games is and how he is willing to challenge the status quo here are the link to his two articles.
Best of luck we really need positive thinkers who think beyond â€œWe are in Pakistan so we canâ€™t challenge themâ€.
