Bayou Blast Tops This Week’s List of Emerging Facebook Games

GameHouse’s Bayou Blast leads our list of emerging Facebook games this week with Broken Bulb’s Miscrits sequel, Volcano Island, and Paprika Lab’s Toyz & Zombies rounding out the top three.

During this quiet week between Christmas and New Year’s, we’ve spotted several established Facebook game developers quietly launching open betas of new games — like Broken Bulb, Paprika, and also Gaia Online and MegaZebra. Notably, each of these developers last launched games over the summer, suggesting that social game devs are beginning to settle into release calendars that put games up to eight months apart. This may be how some devs handle the cannibalization problem some sequels and expansions cause their games of origin.
