Indiana Jones Adventure World is a 2011 adventure game for the social network Facebook. It is the first game made by Zynga's Boston development studio under the leadership of Nabeel Hyatt. (Zynga's Boston office is made up of developers from Conduit Labs and Floodgate Entertainment.[1] ) Adventure World was originally made independent of Indiana Jones, but after it was announced that Zynga had reached a deal with Lucasfilm to bring Indiana Jones to Adventure World,[2] Indiana Jones appeared in off-screen cameo roles. On November 29, 2011, Indiana Jones was added to the game in a chapter dedicated to the character called "Calendar of the Sun". At this time, the title was changed to Indiana Jones Adventure World.[3] Hal Barwood, the co-writer and co-designer of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and writer and designer of Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine worked on Indiana Jones Adventure World in the area of narrative design.[4] Game writer Jonathon Myers has provided narrative support in the wake of Hal Barwood's contribution.

Indiana Jones Adventure World was one in a slew of titles shut down by Zynga at the end of 2012 as part of a cost-cutting measure.[5]

Plot

The game is set in 1930s Middle America. The main character is either a male or a female who has just joined the Adventure Society, and sets up a base camp in an effort to explore ancient ruins.

Gameplay

The object of Indiana Jones Adventure World is to achieve goals by exploring maps. One of the maps, "Calendar of the Sun", allows the player to team up with a non-playable Indiana Jones to search for the mythical object that can control time.

The player depends upon energy, adventure cash, coins, and goals.[6]
