[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Feel Great Games Ltd today is proud to announce the launch of Mogul 1.01 for iPhone. Mogul is a virtual property trading game that has created a new virtual property market. As co-founder Dado Pirola puts it: "Mogul is a cutting-edge game that connects the real world with the virtual through mobile platforms and social networks."
Mogul gets people off the couch into the streets to trade in real-world properties in a virtual property market. Within one week of launching, Mogul has seen players create properties in 26 countries world-wide and in 6 continents.
Players buy properties by taking photos of real world buildings - from the Eiffel Tower or Golden Gate Bridge to their home or local landmark. Within this new virtual economy, property prices are determined by player in-game transactions. New purchases, or investments in other players' properties, drives prices both up and down in Mogul's virtual global property market. Mogul Property Millionaires are popping up around the world as they trade their way to riches. Cities are experiencing virtual booms and crashes as players ruthlessly sell in one location to invest in another.
This new virtual property market has winners and losers, desirable and undesirable investment locations. Players climb on board the property ladder to snap up amazing deals from New York to Paris. Others struggle to gain a foothold in top locations from London to Milan. Some sign up to Mogul only to find that their own home has already been purchased by another player.
"We knew we were on to something special when we saw players taking trips around their local cities just to add new properties to Mogul." says co-founder Dado Pirola. "Mogul creates this global virtual GPS property-market, with people feuding it out over key locations. It's like we've created an MMO that turns the real world into a Monopoly board, and players themselves are determining which locations are the Mogul equivalent of Monopoly's Broad-walk and Mayfair."
Co-founder San Shepherd states: "It's great to see Mogul come alive as players shift their investments around the world. New properties in new locations bring a flurry of transactions and investments, just like the addition of a new company to the stock market. It's been great to see people adding places like the Colosseum in Rome, the Tower of London and Disneyland in Hong Kong and becoming virtual millionaires as a result."
