News flash! The above is an advertisement for an online multi-player game. If you’ve spent any time at all on a thing known as the “internet” then you’ve no doubt had countless images like the one above shoved in your face.
Consider it the internet version of a lap dance.
Curiosity finally got the better of me – like it often does – and I went to check out those boobies.
Here we see an actual screen shot from the game. As you can see, and as far as I can tell, it has absolutely nothing to do with boobies.
So what is Evony? When you strip down (pun intended) the window dressing it is basically an online multi-player version of Civilization. YAWN!!!
The game play features actual simulated farming??? No wonder they had to sex it up.
You can learn more about criticisms of their advertising campaign and how they’ve hassled a blogger with a “cease and desist” letter by reading the Wikipedia page about this game.
