FriendsLearn scores with Fooya Facebook game

FriendsLearn is finding a lot of success over the last year with its recently launched Facebook game, Fooya.

"It's a fast-paced, 3D, real-time game where people are using food as a weapon to fight against each other," says Bhargav Sri Prakash, founder & CEO of FriendsLearn.

The Ann Arbor-based business was officially spun out of CADcorporation last year. Before that it had been developing a 3D video game to help recruit students for the University of Michigan Law School. Soon after it landed a contract with the U.S. State Dept to create a video game to attract international students to American universities.

Fooya launched last October and has enjoyed a nice adoption rate with more than 500,000 people downloading it so far, according to Sri Prakash.

"I would say we have had close to one million people playing the game so far," Sri Prakash says.

That has allowed FriendsLearn to expand its staff to 15 people. It currently has six jobs openings for mobile game software developers and UIX developers and designers.
