The Hunger Games Adventures has finally launched on Facebook, after a week of being in closed beta. The game allows players to become a character in author Suzanne Collins’ world, and it combines adventure and base management mechanics.
The story follows a player’s character as he or she hangs out in District 12, interacting with iconic characters from the books and movies like Katniss Everdeen, Gale Hawthorne and Peeta Mellark. Katniss and Gale guide players on quests through the impoverished district and the surrounding woods, teaching them to hunt for food and fight monsters outside District 12, barter and trade within the town and build up their “Forest Escape” base camp in the woods. Core gameplay is similar to Zynga’s CastleVille, with players unlocking new sections of the map through completing quests or gaining new levels.the original article from inside social games, written by Mark Thompson
