The popular Yard Sale hidden object franchise will soon be given new life on Zynga.com, as Zynga has partnered with game Dallas based developer the Method to give the franchise a free-to-play and social overhaul for Facebook and Zynga.com.
Yard Sale: Hidden Treasures will start with two neighborhoods filled with homeowners that are looking to sell their old junk at yard and garage sales. These neighborhoods will include 24 different scenes at launch, and players will be able to interact with characters throughout the game's storyline that are looking for very specific kinds of treasures that they'll need to find. As players find hidden objects at each yard sale, they'll earn Lucky Bucks which can be spent on decorating and customizing their own property, yard and home.
In this way, Yard Sale: Hidden Treasures sounds incredibly similar to Zynga's original hidden object game Hidden Chronicles, but we're guessing the games will have enough differences to make both viable options for fans of the hidden object genre. Unfortunately, the game's announcement press release didn't really speak to the social features that we can expect to find in Yard Sale: Hidden Treasures, but we'll make sure to bring you news about all of that and more as the game gets closer to launch "soon." Stay tuned!
