Dragon Age Devs Go Yeti

By Published December 01, 2009 at 11:32 pm

BioWare released a free Facebook game today, dubbed Gift of the Yeti. Yetis are of high demand in the web-based gaming world, and following up with a once-was Linux trend, BioWare pushed their free content to Facebook to receive a wider audience. The game is meant to fuel holiday spirit, granted, gamers' perception of holiday spirit often involves rampages and demolition.

The game is 3D and simple: Santa has fallen ill, and as such has drafted a Yeti (you) to give out the presents this year. Stomp from one house to the next, obliterating doors and entries so that you can toss the presents inside. Police eventually notice your destructive wake, adding a chase element to the game.

Gift of the Yeti requires a 3MB download, and is available for free now via Facebook.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
