New Indiana Jones game

Hey all! I saw this on facebook and thought there are probably some interested parties out there. =) There is a new game on facebook that is sort of like all the Farmville titles, called Adventure World. Anyway, it is currently licensed as "An Indiana Jones game" and has the banner "INDY comes in OCTOBER!"

It's a little rough in that it's brand new and they're working on balancing gameplay and all that, and it's currently pretty neighbor-dependent. But I'm a sucker for anything Indiana Jones-related, and here we are. =P

Anyway, it's pretty fun for a few minutes here-and-there, and you get to dig up treasures and use a whip and machete and get letters from Indy. ;D

I figured I'd throw in a teaser, too:

Anyway, I don't know if Lucas asked Zynga to make it, or Zynga made it and Lucas noticed they were relying heavily on whips and fedoras... but I thought I'd pass it on at least out of interest! Good to see the franchise isn't totally eclipsed by Star Wars. =P
