Zynga To Launch New Game ChefVille
The big Facebook gaming giant Zynga is about to launch the latest of ongoing series of ‘Ville’ games. The game is called “ChefVille” and as the name implies, the game puts Facebook players in the shoes of a chef trying to create and run a successful restaurant.
Of course, it is not all sun shinny for this new Zynga launch. The company is facing multiple lawsuits — two accusing the top brass of insider trading and a third accusing the company of blatantly copying another company’s game. Specifically, Electronic Arts is accusing Zynga of copyright infringement, alleging that Zynga’s brand new “The Ville” rips off EA’s game ”The Sims Social.” When it comes to these accusations of copycatting, the launch of “ChefVille” highlights an interesting question: What’s the difference between copyright infringing copycatting and good-ol’ game development evolution?
Zynga has been accused of borrowing heavily from a whole host of games. When it comes to “ChefVille,” Zynga believes it has taken an older concept, improved upon it and made it fresh again. ”I think ChefVille represents a huge evolution in the restaurant genre,” studio general manager Jonathan Knight told me recently during an advance look at the company’s newest game. Not only does “ChefVille” boast some of the highest production values you’ll find in a Facebook game, he says, but they’ve baked in some unique gameplay elements. What do you think of this? Are you excited for a new Zynga game?
