It has been almost a year since the folks at God Is A Geek reviewed Facebook phenomenon Here Be Monsters, and things have come a long way for the game which changed the face of social media gaming.
The game, which was launched officially in 2012, has developed from strength to strength as it goes up against competitors such as Farmville and Candy Crush Saga. However, the latest developments look set to blow its addictive games competitors out of the water.
As of 24th February, Here Be Monsters has launched a new feature which is just one example of its innovative developments over the past year. The new Free Bank Notes feature means that current players can now earn bank notes for free by watching videos on Facebook.
Developers at Here Be Monsters released a statement in late February, telling players: “We are happy to announce we are finally rolling out a means of earning free bank notes via watching videos on Facebook.
“To kick you guys off, how about two free bank notes right now?”
Representatives at Here Be Monsters were keen to point out that the videos would only be available on Facebook web, but with the rate of innovation facing the game right now, it could only be a matter of time before it is accessible on smartphones and tablets.
The developments come just weeks after Here Be Monsters’ owner Gamesys was acquired, in one of the biggest mergers in iGaming history. Gamesys, the brand behind some of the biggest online gaming brands including Jackpot Joy, was officially acquired by Intertain in early February.
William Moore, Finance Director at Gamesys Gibraltar, said of the merger: “The Gamesys Operating Board are delighted to be partnering with Intertain to continue to provide our unique offering to players. We are confident that this exciting partnership will deliver long term growth and together we’ll lead the markets in which we operate.”
Said partnership has already set in motion some changes for Here Be Monsters, including an improved social media campaign along with seasonal promotional offers. In mid February, for example, the game revealed its Valentine’s Day offers.
While Here Be Monsters may have some way to go on the technological front with its latest Bank Notes scheme, there’s no doubt the a new owner and a fresh perspective will launch the game into 2015.
