San Francisco-based social game developer Kabam is bringing the underworld to social networking. The company announced today that Paramount Pictures has agreed to license them their Oscar-winning film The Godfather to be turned into a social game for Facebook.
Now, fans of the already established game Mafia Wars might not care so much, but real movie buffs who love the classic film series might really get suckered into this. The game is called The Godfather: Five Families and takes place in New York City in the 1930s, a decade before where the first movie in the film trilogy starts. As a player, you are born into one of the five mafia families Francis Ford Coppola created and then you must find a way to become don, by any means necessary.
As always, the game is free to start, but not if you plan on making it to don. Then, you'll have to start spending a little cash to get the weapons and special skills you'll need.
Sounds fun for those who always wanted to be Brando. Not so much for anyone else.
Think U might join this family???
