Facebook is the largest gaming platform in the world. Facebook was created to provide a way to meet members of the opposite sex.
So forget poking ... FB has graduated to straight-up cyber-breeding, according to SocialTimes.com.
A new game called Incrediland has been created by an academic who was studying dolphin behavior in Hawaii (man, that sounds like a pick-up line, right?). Yuval Amir designed three characters that reflect certain dolphin characteristics: the Zorg, the Gambi and the Boon.
Users buy eggs and then trade with friends to attain the best genetic mixes.
Bang, you're breeding.
There is a genetic calculator
that simply reeks of a Gattaca-type world that shows users what the egg will grow up to look like and its dominant characteristics. So there is some educational value here, just not Gregor Mendel-level stuff.
After all, breeding with an "Incredi Friend" robot is fun, but breeding with your real friends is surely a whole lot better. So when you hop on the boat to Incrediland be sure take a couple of friends with you for breeding."
And that goes for Incrediland and spring break.
