Word of the game, currently in beta, was sent to the site via a tipster who also sent along a screenshot of the social game. According to the source, the game contains revamped graphics as well as gameplay changes such as growing crops to feed your farm critters. Zynga declined comment on the game, but said it’s always “looking for ways to bring players the best experience,” and “continuously innovating” its titles.
