A Finland based game developer Gajatri Studios has unveiled details for its first Facebook game Yoga Retreat which is going to be launched on Facebook on the week starting 6th of August.
According to venturebeat.com the game tasks you with teaching yoga on a virtual island resort in exchange for in-game currency. As you level up, you unlock more yoga for use both in the game and in life. And like in other social management games, the in-game currency can be used to upgrade buildings and facilities on the island; if you’re playing with friends, you can also visit their resorts and trade items with one another.
Gajatri Studios was founded in 2011 by Tiina Zilliacus, who has 14 years of production and business experience in games, and also is a certified yoga teacher. The developers are hoping Yoga Retreat will become a “daily gaming oasis” for many Facebook players.
According to Arctic Startup website, the company has received funding from Mediatonic, a new kind of a investor in Finland. Mediatonic does not take equity in the company it invests in, but makes it return on investment from the sales royalties. The investor has not commented in detail the kind of agreements it enters into.
