Fleck - free MMO/gmaps mashup craziness!

Hey! So, we recently submitted our latest game to Apple. It's a bit hard to describe, so maybe a screenshot will do it some justice.

Basically, it's a MMO that takes place on Google Maps, and uses a bunch of real-world data, from Yelp for restaurants to real local weather & more. Gameplay-wise, it's got a little Farmville, in that you can plant stuff & harvest it for XP & $$, it's got a bit of Diablo, in that it's got real-time combat, but the central goal is that every city is competing on a giant leaderboard to be #1. Everything you do can up your city's ranking - even helping friends in other cities.

There are a lot of co-op quests & tasks to undertake, from completing scavenger hunts (can you find all of San Francisco's major landmarks, or the weirdest landmarks in the US?) to posting a signpost in a place that makes you happy.

If you want to jump in and check it out now, there's a open beta on the web at http://www.fleck.com - but it should (hopefully) be available soon on the iPad!
