Starting today, Martha Stewart, or her avatar at least, will be visiting neighboring castles in CastleVille, spreading cheer in the form of in-game rewards.
From today until the middle of April, players will receive invitations to visit her kingdom and interact with her avatar. Her castle is the largest in the CastleVille universe (naturally), and is designed after her actual Bedford home.
Martha will host an Easter egg hunt in her kingdom. Players can also build a crafting gazebo and decorate Easter eggs.
“I love playing games, but I love being in a game even more. Turning my personal domain into an imaginary and fanciful kingdom is not only fun for me and the players of CastleVille, but a clever way to share my particular style of living with an interactive and creative audience. I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to encourage my fans to take a little break in their day to play,” said Martha Stewart.
“Martha Stewart is someone who people across the world have welcomed into their home for years, and I’m thrilled to welcome her onto CastleVille game boards,” said David Rippy, General Manager of CastleVille. “Zynga is creating a new form of entertainment through our games, and we are always looking for ways to keep play fun and interesting, and to surprise and delight our players by bringing a bit of what they love in the real world to their virtual kingdoms. We’re honored that Martha has journeyed into CastleVille and hope our players will truly enjoy getting a chance to craft with their homemaking hero in the game.”
