Ravenskye City, Bubble Witch Saga on Top in This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Games by DAU

Ravenskye City tops our list of fastest-growing games by daily active users this week with Bubble Witch Saga and PetVille rounding out our top three.

Pets seem to be the keyword to this week’s list with PetVille competitors Pet Society (EA Playfish), Happy Pets and Happy Aquarium (both Crowdstar) appearing on the rankings. The pet genre is one of the oldest on Facebook, dating all the way back to (fluff)Friends, which launched almost right when the Facebook platform was opened up for third party developers in May 2007. Of those on our list this week, Pet Society was first out of the gate in September 2008 with Happy Aquarium and Happy Pets launching back-to-back in October and November of 2009 and finally PetVille launching around December 2009.
