The team behind Digsby the popular multi-protocol instant messenger have launched ChatVille, a brand new Facebook game that combines the best elements of Chatroulette with the gaming and viral mechanics of apps like Farmville. We’ve had a lot of fun working on this project so we’re thrilled to finally release it into the wild.
ChatVille let’s you video chat with random Facebook users in a safe environment while earning compliments, unlocking badges, and leveling up through positive experiences with other users. You can also video chat with all your Facebook friends for the first time ever right from the Facebook website and post screenshots of your ChatVille adventures to Facebook albums.
Your interactions are tied to your Facebook account under the hood so there are actionable consequences for inappropriate behavior. We’ve also developed a proprietary system for weeding out the bad apples quickly and permanently.
ChatVille is built completely in Google AppEngine and can be accessed by visiting http://apps.facebook.com/chatville/.
