FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Sunnyvale, CA - December 14, 2006) -Voyage Century Online, the eagerly anticipated 16th century nautical online game from Internet Gaming Gate (IGG), began alpha testing December 8th, and initial reports are wildly enthusiastic about the game!
Voyage Century Online issued over 1000 alpha testing accounts, and the feedback so far is fantastic. Comments range over a wide variety of topics. Much of the feedback is very practical: "I learned you should NOT try to get tossed in the clink I eventually realized I could shoot a guard, he promptly owned me. Killing rats will probably take longer than it would to wait out your sentence." "I also learned that the map (ctrl+m) can be used to navigate around and find the NPCs!" "Don't attack trade ships; the cities don't like you."
Some players told the story of their adventures: "My plan is to see all the cities of the world and get a map so as not to get too lost trying to find them again." "Taiwan was the last stop seen to be owned by a pirate, since the second I went offshore there were two ships attacking me and I died. But fear not! I shall continue forward and see the world "
And, overwhelmingly, the players are enthusiastic about Voyage Century Online. One gamer wrote, "I must say after playing in the Alpha even with the bugs encountered this game is great! We really have to thank the team of this game they have put together something so great and offering it to the public for free. I still don't understand how or why they did it for free and where the money comes in to pay the hosting and development expense but thank you and great job. So far from my experience the game does have a small learning curve but the amount of things you can do in this game is awesome."
