The new avatar customization makes it possible for players to style their avatar according to their personal preferences. Moreover, we doubled the number of city districts that can be conquered and due to the increasing number of players we have opened two new GOODGAME MAFIA worlds. We have just started editing the graphics and design, so there will be even more improvement coming in the future. Our main goal is to constantly increase the quality of the game and the satisfaction of our players.“ Everyone who is interested in finding out more about the complex mechanisms behind the entertaining product should read Teister’s article „High-Performance-Ranglisten“ („High Performance Rankings“) in the current edition of the journal „Making Games“ (in German: making_games_ranglisten.pdf).
