Paramount Pictures Corporation is a global producer and distributor of filmed entertainment. Funtactix is a worldwide developer and publisher of online worlds and social games.  This is a dream marriage for many Gamers.

Gamers are casts in the leading role of an underground secret agent.  The mission is three-fold:  assemble a team of covert agents, unlock state-of-the-art gadgets and equipment, and collect classified intel through secret rendezvous in order to build an outfit ready to complete elaborate operations in exotic locales around the world.  

According to Sam Glassenber, CEO of Funtactix, “Mission: Impossible The Game goes well beyond a typical social game and brings an unprecedented level of detail and authenticity.”  “It allows fans of the action-packed Mission: Impossible movies to create an agent in the official M:I universe and live a life of espionage and covert operations with their real-life friends as accomplices.”

Amy Powell, President, Insurge Pictures & Paramount Digital Entertainment and Executive Vice President, Interactive Marketing for Paramount Pictures stated, “Integrating unique experiences and rewards into the Mission: Impossible game is an exciting new way for Paramount to interact with the Facebook community and build on the excitement for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in an organic way”.
