Edit: The game is now live so if you want to try it out the beta key is "Flora" just use that when prompted on www.8realms.com. Let us kow how you enjoy the Beta, thanks for being an awesome community and best of luck winning the iPod touch!
My name is Eduardo and I work for an online computer games company called Jagex. As you can probably imagine, this is a post about shameless self-promotion for one of our new games. Our game is currently in closed Beta stages and we would love to get your communities' opinion on it. The game is called 8Realms.
What’s the game about? It’s a RTS that is designed to be playable anywhere on any device that has a browser! We would love for you guys to get involved, try it and give us feedback. What’s more the game is completely free at this stage. The game itself is a race through the ages, where you can build your own empire to rule over the land and cause the end of the world. That’s correct: YOU can destroy the world full of thousands of players and claim supremacy, plunging the world back into the beginning of time.
On the plus side, we are offering a free ipod touch every day to a random player playing the game from the 22nd of July to the 17th of August. That is, yes, 27 free ipods(!) getting handed out to players so you can play the game wherever you are. We have some other awesome prizes up for grabs during the game also so keep your eyes peeled for other big prizes!
The next round will start this Friday so I wanted to get in early and get any questions you had in before it comes up. Feel free to head over to the site and register for a beta key (which will come on Friday) but I will also be able to dish out a specific one for you guys on here on Friday also.
Also, Le link (I'm French, deal with it): www.8realms.com
Any questions just give me a shout, I will be checking back regularly and will also be mooching around the forums in general!
Thanks for reading and I hope you guys get involved!
