Playdom's Deep Realms launches on Facebook

Several weeks ago, - The Blog! got a sneak peek at a new casual role-playing game from Playdom called Deep Realms -- and today the game officially launches on Facebook.

"We wanted to make a social game for core players, a game that we, as developers, would want to play," says Deep Realms Executive Producer Alex Ou. "Deep Realms introduces the depth of console RPGs to social gamers with elements of interaction that go beyond those in the current generation of social games."
To start the game, you create an avatar and then take off on a journey that will have you finding hidden treasure and fighting big monsters -- growing your skills as you progress. Even though this game is designed to be "a game for gamers" -- it will still have to be casual enough to appeal to the people more likely to play games on Facebook.

We'll be taking a closer look at this game in the next couple of days to see if it achieves that balance. In the meantime, you can check it out for yourself at
