Playboy to take on World of Warcraft with Bunny-themed MMORG

Playboy Manager, coming soon...

Business security measures using SSL

Always wondered what Hugh Hefner’s life’s like? You could soon find out, because a Playboy-themed “Massively Casual Online Game” (MCOG) is in development.

Although it’s unlikely to displace World of Warcraft, EVE or Ultima, Playboy Manager will see you play a crack talent agent who must manage the career of some of Playboy’s hottest up-and-coming models.

You’ll compete against other players to help guide your chosen model’s career toward her ultimate goal - becoming a world-renowned Playmate with a permanent room in the Playboy Mansion.

Said to combine “the best elements of trading card and turn-based gaming”, Playboy Manager will also feature exclusive Playboy content, such as steamy videos and photos.

Will there be other features for the 'I read it for the articles' brigade, we wonder?

You may want to think twice about where you play the MCOG though, because the game’s publisher, Jolt, has suggested you “play it during a lecture, on your phone or even in the office”.

Playboy Manager will be launched globally this summer and you can register online to take part. ®
