Jolt Online Gaming as announced a browser-based casual MMO called Playboy Manager.

Yes, it sounds exactly as it seems. Facepalm.

Centered around trading card and turn-based gaming, it features exclusive content from Playboy, including videos and photos of the models.

Your character plays a “crack talent agent” that manages the career of up-and-coming Playboy models, with the goal being to take your models straight to the bottom, er um, top.

Basically living the life of Hef without the perks.
