Insomniac Games is known for making AAA games for the PlayStation consoles, recently the Resistance and Ratchet & Clank series, and is also developing an unannounced multiplatform game. Today they announced a new division within the company called Insomniac Click, which is developing a game on Facebook.

In what was a wall of text, that I found interesting mind you, Brian Hastings wrote about what a game is and how social games you normally find on Facebook isn’t considered games and how they wanted to change that. In short, they want in on the action, because Facebook games have turned into a gold mine. Don’t get me wrong, I love Insomniac Games, and I’m sure they are passionate about this, but at the end of the day, it’s a business move, and a smart one at that. So here’s hoping they will make something fun. Farmville isn’t cutting it for me. The game they are making, whatever it might be, will be free, probably with some sort of possibility of paying for stuff. They didn’t go into detail about it, but said we would hear more in the coming months. I will sure follow this with interest to see what they come up with.
