Worms for facebook enters beta
Team 17 is bringing its classic turn-based warfare game, Worms, to Facebook. The development has now entered closed beta testing. It should not be too long to an official release, or at least, an open beta programme where everyone can play. The game has already undergone testing in secret by secret people wearing dark clothing, playing only in the shadows and being as quiet as possible – a true feat considering open warfare is usually quite noisy.
This is no ordinary Worms game though as Worms Facebook Producer, James Long describes.
“Unlike traditional titles Worms on Facebook is a living entity. Plans are in place to continually introduce new content and to monitor the gameplay experience to ensure Worms as fun and fresh as possible.”
The closed beta will be ramping up in terms of participants over the next few weeks. If you fancy a shot (pun intended), wriggle your way over to the website at http://apps.facebook.com/playworms/ and register your interest.
