The first truly story-driven social game is coming soon to a browser near you
NEW YORK – June 15, 2012 – uCool, Inc, composed of veterans in the hardcore social gaming space, has officially revealed Tynon, their new social fantasy RPG / city-building game. From members of the team behind Evony, a pioneer of hardcore online games, Tynon is introducing several new concepts to the social gaming space. Combining a unique blend of action, role-playing, social and strategy gameplay elements, Tynon will be the first truly story-driven social web game.
In Tynon, the King has come under the affliction of a dark wizard’s spell and it’s up to players to help the elite knight Rosaline and a band of heroes to rescue the king and save the thirteen kingdoms from the dark wizard’s magic. The lands continue to burn while wicked goblins roam free, serpent queens plague Verdant City, and the kingdom is threatened by disaster and slavery.
Players must also help Rosaline rebuild the Imperial City to its former glory. With the cooperative ability to enlist the aid of friends from Facebook and other social networks, players can upgrade and customize their cities and gain resources by visiting neighboring towns. Hundreds of quests will be available to earn more resources, gold and gems to upgrade your city, armor and battle skills.
The action-packed battles, in-depth fantasy story campaign, city-building strategies and beautiful, hand-drawn environments of Tynon will change the social gaming landscape and will be enjoyable for both hardcore social and casual gaming fans.
Tynon will be available this summer on web browser. Check out a first look at the game in the trailer now!
