Viwawa – Why Play Alone?

ViwawaThere are a lot of casual/social gaming sites out there, but very few that really have a captivating style to them. It becomes a challenge to stand out amongst the crowd, but there are those that find a way, and one such example comes yet again from the Far East.

Viwawa, a division of Pendulab, is one of the fastest growing social gaming networks in Asia. The Vivawa platform offers an interactive gaming portal complete with a slew of wonderfully creative online multiplayer games that not only encourage competition by challenging both the mind as well as twitch skills. Furthermore, the genres range from strategic fighting games such as “Wahlords” to culinary challenges for those would-be sushi chiefs with “Sushido.”

WawaIn addition to the great games within the site, users can also log on and create what the developers have dubbed a “Wawa.” Sounds cute, does it not? Well, that would be an accurate assessment as this Wawa is a personal avatar that has a very “chibi” (small and cute for lack of a better term) and Asian feel. As one might expect, these can be displayed for the world to see. In addition, users can engage in both live chat and forums, in which (oddly enough) trash talk and challenges seem to be encouraged.

The site celebrated its one year anniversary at the 7th Annual Asia Game Show in Hong Kong in December.
