Zynga's art department really phoned this one in. Or maybe they need to rewatch Raiders.
The Indy wiki shows both Musgrove and Eaton as making appearances (looking nearly identical to each other and the pic above, except without the hat), but when I played, I only saw Musgrove. There were two voices talking, but the second voice's dialogue bubble appeared from a pile of crates. Maybe it's a bug? Or maybe Zynga's in the process of chubbifying Eaton?
While I wouldn't generally look for game friends, I wouldn't mind having extra Indyfans in my network. Send me a message on Facebook if you'd like another Adventure World neighbor.
I'm still playing the game on a daily basis. I've reached level 37 and as several people have mentioned, I haven't spent a dime purchasing anything. With the help of this thread I've gotten a fairly good small network of friends that are helpful in sending and accepting gifts so I'm not begging for help so much anymore. My problem these days is that the game is running incredibly slowly. I've done it on quite a few computers and almost all of them have periodic glitches ("Disconnected," please refresh) and run slowly.
I'm at that stage of an addict where I see playing it is not really as rewarding as the time I'm putting into it, but I can't seem to stop.
If anybody's wondering what's new in this game, the answer is: nothing!?
The last new quest was months ago, and it ended with most of the original Zynga characters announcing that they were retiring or moving on to other things, divorced from the game's story. It seemed like the developers were preparing for some sort of big shake-up within the game.
But then just a couple of weeks ago, Zynga shut down their Boston branch, laying off the team behind IJAW. I wonder if that means Adventure World is dead?
Just to clarify, that's 01/13/2013 here in the USA. For a second there, I was looking forward to playing until Smarch.
For the record, here's the announcement as it appears when you go to play the game:
Our goal at Zynga is to bring players the most fun and social games on the web. Over the past year, we have had a great time working on Indiana Jones™ Adventure World™, and we thank you for joining us. As of 11/15/12, Adventure World is no longer available to new players and will no longer be accepting payments. Existing Adventurers like you will be able to access the game until 1/13/13. After that time, the game will no longer be available. We’re excited to offer bonus packages to Adventure World players to try other Zynga games.
