‘FrontierVille’ Attracts 20 Million Digital Settlers


Filed under: ,

'FrontierVille' passes 20-million user mark.
In the biggest digital migration since folks moved down on the farm, millions of "pioneers" have hitched their covered wagons and moved West in search of new online lives. According to USA Today, since its June 9th launch, 20 million gamers have played 'FrontierVille.' Now, that number pales in comparison to Zynga's other most popular social-networking game -- 'FarmVille,' with its 62 million users -- but it does show that 'FrontierVille' is (regretfully) here to stay. Just what are all these folks doing on their homesteads? Well, 6.3 million built log cabins, 3.3 million built general stores, 2.3 million married, 1.1 million birthed a kid, 10 million clobbered a snake and 3.6 million ran-off a bear. Oh, pioneers!

Unfortunately, there are no numbers showing how many real-life relationships have ended or how many boxes of snack cakes have been consumed from playing too much 'FrontierVille.' [From: USA Today]
