Now you can live the tropical paradise that Jimmy Buffet wished upon all his listeners with Margaritaville Online. Party with friends in an immersive 3D environment, enjoying cocktails, tunes and adventure. This online paradise is inspired by the lifestyle of author/singer/song-writer Jimmy Buffet and is being developed by Exploding Barrel Games and published by THQ.

“The Margaritaville laidback state of mind is inherently social, and THQ has captured the spirit of that lifestyle in this game,” said Buffett.  “With Margaritaville Online, fans across the globe can party together any time and any place.”

In Margaritaville Online, players will create their very own virtual beach oasis where they can build a bar, form a band, throw get-togethers and explore tropical adventures. There will also be plenty of mini-games to keep players occupied. A Jimmy Buffet soundtrack will be provided to add the final touch to this enchanting experience and players will be able to interact with some of the characters featured in the songs, like Captain Tony from “Last Mango in Paris”.

Margaritaville Online will be available on Facebook and iOS devices Fall 2011.
