Microsoft has kicked off an open beta of a new multiplayer game called "Neosaurs" on December 9, which it's attempting to propogate virally via Twitter and Facebook.
"Neosaurs is a new massively multiplayer RPG (MMORPG) adventure that you can play, right here in your browser for free! No downloads, no wait times. Click "Play Now" to jump in the game and start playing right away with your existing Facebook or Windows Live account."
A Microsoft spokesperson issued following statement about Neosaurs:
"Neosaurs is a new game under development at Microsoft Game Studios in partnership with Camelot Media Investments (CMI), a global leader in the casual MMO space. The game is actively under development and currently in beta. We'll have more to announce soon."
Neosaurs is interesting on a couple of fronts. For one, it's evidence of Microsoft's growing interest in the casual gaming/social gaming space.
