Coobico is a new Flash-based, free strategy- and RPG-MMO being released in Q1, 2008.
In Coobico's online world, players take on the roles of settlers to a run-down and near-abandoned island. By building up your neighbourhood you can compete with other citizens to become the island's most influential resident.
Think MySims meets Habbo Hotel meets Sim-City -- Coobico blends features like city-building, roleplaying and social networking in a casual game-experience. The game is being developed by Linking People, a web-startup in Hong Kong.
