Ubi to launch new games on Facebook

Play the first one right now. TickTock.

Ubisoft has launched a new web gaming portal via Facebook, titled UbiFriends.

The first game, TickTock, is already up and running. You answer multiple-choice questions about your friends' status updates, trying to identify who said what. Then you can send "bombs" to other people's Facebook accounts, which they must answer questions to defuse. Perfect for irritating casual acquaintances of a Monday morning.

"We've been a leader in the art of making games for many years, and we're happy to bring the Ubisoft experience to Facebook, " said Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America.

"Our first application, TickTock, is about leveraging user generated content to interact with your friends, and it's the first of many applications that we're building for our UbiFriends portal."
