Fantasy University Opens – Schools Facebook Gaming

Too late for back-to-school news?  We don’t think so.

Facebook – meet Fantasy University, the latest project from veteran development team Simutronics.  Since 1987, Simutronics has been entertaining millions with games such as GemStone IV, the longest-running commercial MUD in the world.  If CEO David Whatley and company could turn text-based games into entertainment enjoyed by millions, imagine what they could do with Facebook.  Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Fantasy University.

Fantasy University combines snarky humor, endless pop culture references, and the FUBAR (the game’s form of virtual currency) with solid, RPG gameplay.   Facebook, a platform that has been subject to mounting criticism by gaming journalists (and sometimes ignored altogether), is now host to emomancers,  slackninjas, mathemagicians, cheermongers, and dodgebrawlers.

There’s plenty to say about F.U., but sometimes game art speaks louder than words.

We’ll be playing right along with you – don’t be late for school!
