“When Margaret Wallace, founder and chief of online gaming startup Playmatics, moved to New York from Silicon Valley in 2005, she had already launched two tech companies, both backed by venture capitalists along Menlo Park’s famous Sand Hill Road.

Shadow Government is a new “reality-based” social game being developed by Playmatics founders Margaret Wallace and Nick Fortugno in collaboration with Philippe Trawnika (formerly of the investment firm Bridgeworks.ch) in partnership with the Millennium Institute.
