"We have great expectations for RamaCity and even believe that our
latest title will trump the success of our other casual games such as
Farmerama or Zoomumba!" explains Tobias Reisberger, Chief Games Officer

features of city-building game and wraps them up in one casual game,

In RamaCity, it's up to players to build a city that is just as
beautiful as it is efficient. They have to properly arrange residential
homes, industrial zones, recreational facilities and commercial units,
so that their Urbies don't have to live next to stinky factories.
Players will constantly have to reposition their buildings in their
rapidly expanding cities. Taking on the role of mayor, players must
watch out for their citizens' well-being: Urbies are enthusiastic
consumers who like to spend money on items players produce in the game,
such as shoes, rubbier duckies or soccer balls!
In RamaCity players don't only have to interact with their citizens, but
they also have the chance to communicate with other city mayors via
social-game features such as a buddy list. The social interaction
provides healthy competition and will help motivate players to beautify
their city as much as they can! That's why they can switch up the
colors of their buildings and literally paint the town!
No matter how players envision their dream city, they're bound to have a
fantastic time in the free-to-play browser game which is available now
at the official website: http://www.ramacity.com. The game's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ramacity) offers players another option to shoot the breeze with other RamaCity
players and find out the information they need.
