Bight Games, a leading social mobile games developer and studio, announced today that it's popular Trade Nations social trading game is now available in an all new version just for Facebook. Now millions more users worldwide can enjoy what some have called one of the best social trading games available.

Trade Nations is an addictive free-to-play game where players create and grow their own medieval towns out of the forest by attracting villagers, assigning jobs, and reaping the rewards of the villager's labor. Built on the Bight Social Server™ Trade Nations for Facebook allows for days of trading fun with Facebook friends by visiting their villages, exchanging resources and delivering gifts. Players can also add to their enjoyment of the game through the purchase of in-game items with Facebook credits, which enable special features and faster village growth.

Stuart Duncan, CEO of Bight Games commented, "The expansion of Bight's offerings to the web is a key part of our platform strategy and reflects our belief that Facebook itself is becoming a mobile platform with the proliferation of tablets and laptops as many people's primary means of accessing the web."

This is the first Facebook game developed by Bight Games and showcases the recognized creative and development strengths of the studio. Another recognized sign of the growing prowess of this studio is the reporting this week by Gamasutra that shows that two of the top ten grossing games for the iPad were developed by Bight Games. This latest success is one of only many since its inception for the award-winning Bight Games. Earlier this year, Bight Games' growing influence and capabilities were recognized by PocketGamer, placing Bight on its prestigious listing of the top 50 mobile game developers worldwide for 2011.

"There are thousands of game developers for mobile and portable devices, and that number is growing fast," stated Marc Alloul, Head of Corporate Development and Strategy, "But there are only 50 spots in this ranking and we are very proud to be part of it."
