The latest brainchild of Zynga, company of the monumentally addictive Mafia Wars and FarmVille games, is heading to the tropical with Treasure Isle. As you'd guess, it involves buried treasure... on an island. As the Wall Street Journal reports, each Treasure Isle user is placed on a secluded piece of land where they can dig for gold coins, jewels and Tiki statues. They can then use any excavated goodies to buy hammocks or huts for their home. When they're not lounging or watching the sun set over their computer screen, gamers can harvest fruit in their backyards, which they can 'eat' to gain the energy necessary to waste hours of their lives at the office.
