Digital Chocolate hits one million Facebook players


Here at -- The Blog!, it doesn't really surprise us anymore when some social game or another getsametricbuttloadofplayersreallyquickly. The virality is still somewhat surprising to Digital Chocolate's Trip Hawkins, though. The Electronic Arts founder recently blogged he was "a bit surprised myself" that his company's two Facebook games have already surpassed one million monthly users on Facebook.

The overhwelming majority of that million are playing the company's MMA Pro Fighter, which has seen its user base grow steadily since launching in late December. The company's second release, NanoTowns, has seen even quicker growth since it's launch in early March. Will the company's latest release, Safari Kingdom, see similar success? It we were Trip Hawkins, we wouldn't be... surprised.
