After a basic fact-finding mission, IGN seems to have uncovered some more details about the game. “the game will run in-browser and on Unity, and will feature two currencies — cash and “clams.” The description for clams leads me to believe that it will be the primary currency of the game as it is earned by “doing things and accomplishing tasks that you might be challenged to complete.” Therefore, cash is likely obtained with real money. We also know it is allegedly launching this autumn. “
With the huge fan base of the series and the fact that this appears to be a free-to-play game with micro-transactions, this game may possibly be a hit. I’m definitely seeing lots of people spending money on this game.
