civony: the hotness of your naked queen

civony1I have gotten hundreds, literally, a couple hundred google hits on this entry I posted about Civony, the half-assed-looking new browser game that is sweeping the nation with its blitz of extremely low-budget ads. I must say, the campaign is brilliant.  Not only are they combining cheap sexiness (and by “cheap”, I mean “ripped off from a costume catalog“), total market saturation, and absolute scamminess, but they seem to be consciously not disseminating information, so that a quick search brings up no significant results beyond their homepage–not even a Wikipedia entry.  We are forced to keep googling, driving up its page ranks or whatever, in a desperate attempt to figure out what the hell it is, and how such a crappy-looking thing can have such a large ad budget.

I guess the real question is, can these guys put together enough money to but a drug villa in Mexico before various copyright holders descend upon them like a plague of sexy, sexy locusts?

(If you got here via a Civony search – are you playing this game?  Are you just as baffled as the rest of us?  Or are you just a search bot, morosely clicking about your duties until someone does you the kindness of cutting your power and letting you fade away, putting this miserable life behind you?)

  1. It is a wonderful game and does not require constant attention. You can have it on in the background and check on it every few hours while your play with your kids or cleaning the house or even getting real work done at a your job. Normally these game make you spend all your time on them if you want successful, but this game with the long time period it takes to build things let you click and walk away. It is for real people who like strategy but have lives and people who need them. Fun game, too bad it will probably be shut down. C. Campbell
