Farmville is a game?

A shallow look at Faunasphere reveals, at least to me, a game that seems to have quite a lot in common with the (apparently despised) FarmVille. Can someone with actual experience with both explain how Faunasphere is deserving of a deeper look?

Hey Cinnamoon,

First I want to acknowledge that I am an employee of Big Fish Games, the company that is responsible for Faunasphere. Having said that...

Faunasphere differs from Farmville in a large number of ways.

1. It is truly a multiplayer experience. You can interact with thousands of different players all in one shared virtual world. This is an MMO. When someone comes to visit your Faunasphere, you can be there to greet them, talk with them, interact with them all in real time.

2. We do have farming it's true. We also have:

a. Goals for our players to achieve including new content introduced on a
regular basis.
b. Genetics and breeding to study, understand and experiment with.
c. New Fauna to discover, you never know what you will hatch!
d. A player marketplace where 'Caretakers' can buy and sell goods on their
own, independent of the 'company' stores.
e. New worlds to discover and explore are being released on a regular
basis as well as seasonal updates.

There is more, but this is a good example of the differences between the games. Of course, I am biased, but I believe you will find that Faunaphere brings a depth to gaming on Facebook that has not yet been previously achieved.
