Players logging into YoVille today are being greeted by a pop-up announcing that they have got a free gift. Many YoVillians have been waiting patiently – and not so patiently – to see what Zynga would give the players to show it’s ‘love and appreciation’ for staying loyal to the game, despite dropping player numbers.
Well, the waiting is over, and – drum roll – we can reveal that today’s free gift is an Australia Goanna statue. For those of you who have never heard of a Goanna, it is another name for the Monitor Lizard.
This is what it looks like in game. It has been placed next to an avatar to show you how large it is.
After all the mounting excitement, for many this may feel like a bit of a let-down. It could be placed on the same level as previous raffle prizes – nice, but nothing special. Already, a thread has been started in the discussion forum, and posters are less than enthusiastic about the gift. You can read the thread and leave your own comments here.
What do you think of today’s free gift. Are you pleased with it – or extremely disappointed? Will you be keeping it, selling it – or simply deleting it? Please leave your thoughts in the comment box below. We love to read your feedback.
