Jimmy Buffet thinks they will!
The musician is taking Margaritaville online and is collaborating with game developer THQ on a free-to-play social media game due this year on Facebook and Apple iPad.
While talking about his new online venture, he shared some details about the game, saying:
"You can build a boat (and) you can build a bar. You gotta evade the pirates. You can have adventures. You can go to Margaritaville."
Virtual pirates? Virtual bars? Virtual drunken pirates at virtual bars! We can't wait to vacay in Margaritaville!
Unlike most online games, playing may benefit you offline too! Buffett hopes to incorporate a feature that allowers players to turn virtual goods into rewards at his Margaritaville restaurant, explaining:
"If you buy virtual cheeseburgers and margaritas to send to friends, that should earn you a real burger or beer at a restaurant."
Will we see you at the bar in Margaritaville Online?
