Dreamforge Entertainment LLC logoRUSTON, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dreamforge Entertainment, an independent developer of high-quality casual games for the PC, iPhone and social networking applications, today announced the latest release of Jade Monkey, its popular match-three Facebook puzzle game. Available June 23, the new Jade Monkey includes several features that integrate social networking with gameplay more closely than ever.

“We develop games where social connectivity is a key element, not an afterthought, to gameplay.”

"Jade Monkey is a classic puzzle game with a big social networking twist," said Michael Barnhill, product manager for Dreamforge Entertainment. "This release offers players many new opportunities to compete and connect with their Facebook network."

Players can tap friends to solve puzzles, swap coveted upgrades and earn a bounty of collection achievements. By inviting friends to download and play Jade Monkey, players can unlock gameplay upgrades such as time bonuses, special gems and puzzle shortcuts.

A comprehensive achievement system awards gamers that meet special challenges with sharable items like gems, feathers and a monkey mask.

Jade Monkey, the most popular puzzle game on Facebook Live Games during the week of May 3, 2010, joins Friends vs. Missiles and Monster Wrangler in Dreamforge Entertainment's expanding lineup of social networking games. Several new titles are scheduled for release this year, including Cardigo, an interactive card-matching game.
