Berlin, March 19, 2019 – SOFTGAMES, the leading experts for Messenger Games based in Berlin, are delighted to announce the release of their latest title Mahjong Story on Facebook Instant Games.

Mahjong Story provides a fresh and dynamic approach to puzzle games, and is at the forefront of a new generation of Messenger Games that pair amazing graphics, deep gameplay and social interactions with a great attention to a game´s feel and detail. Classic mechanics were refined and expanded to create a high quality and exceptional user experience in the Messenger.

A classic reinvented

Together with the adventurous May, a young woman traveling around the world with just her backpack and her cute best friend Jong the ferret, the player explores different locations. Throughout their journey the team will visit various famous historical cities like Rome or exotic places like the hills of Machu Picchu. Among their adventurous path this unique team is challenged to solve puzzles to clear levels and unlock big rewards. Boosters can be used to deal with hard levels and to challenge your friend´s highest scores. Beyond competing with friends, more complex social features are being developed to be launched in the near future.

We are excited to kick off our new generation of Messenger Games with this unique and highly polished Mahjong experience. We strongly believe that Mahjong Story will be a great fit to our Instant Games Community, who will experience a game that is classic at its core, and at the same time advanced to perfectly meet the needs of our players. Building on their deep understanding of the challenges posed by Instant Games as a platform our team has adapted the classic Mahjong formula and created a fun and modern game for a highly entertaining experience in between”, says SOFTGAMES CEO Alexander Krug.
