2nd July 2007 - To celebrate the new partnership between online games retailer GAME.co.uk and A World of My Own (AWOMO), customers are being offered an exclusive opportunity to trial the Beta version of the revolutionary new 3D virtual gaming community site and win a Golden Ticket providing free access and games for life*.
Launching fully later this year, AWOMO will bring a huge choice of the world's best games to gamers in the UK - making them all playable within minutes rather than hours. The games are set within a 3D virtual world, which will become home to the world's games community by offering hundreds of streamed games and many special features, including live voice chat and high profile competitions to win big prizes.
A limited number of customers can register from today to take part in the Beta testing - to explore the AWOMO world, feedback their experiences to the experts developing it and play free games from some of the world's top publishers. As special test pilots they will have access to games from some of the top developers and publishers around the world - normally only available in the shops.
When the test is over, if you have completed the test, participants who registered with GAME will be entered into the final draw - and the lucky 'Golden Ticket' winner will get a free lifetime subscription to AWOMO - granting them free games forever! Everyone who completes the testing will receive offers of up to one month's free membership, plus an exclusive GAME.co.uk 'virtual' item for their avatar to forever identify them as one of the first original AWOMO members, and to claim special advantages.
This offer is limited so anyone wanting to be one of the fortunate few should register now simply by visiting www.game.co.uk/awomo
For more information please contact Fiona Haldane at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01256 784442.
*Terms and conditions apply to this offer. The Golden Ticket grants free access for life based on the AWOMO basic package available at launch of the service. Additional purchases will be at the expense of the winner. Membership, discounts and privileges only apply to original member and are non transferable. Qualification for entry to the Golden Ticket draw is subject to the entrants' participation in the AWOMO Beta Test. Registering alone does not grant you entry to the draw. By registering for the promotion you agree to being contacted outside of GAME.co.uk by the AWOMO Beta Team, including instructions on how to participate and newsletters via email.
AWOMO is an island paradise for gamers, in which launching a game is as simple as walking into a room in one of the many themed buildings in the environment. Unlike other online delivery services, which require the entire game to be downloaded before the gamer starts playing, AWOMO delivers the same game playable in a matter of minutes on a standard broadband connection using proprietary technology.
AWOMO will be populated with a huge variety of PC games, from the latest blockbusters to the hard-to-find back catalogue titles gamers might never otherwise locate. Different districts in the world will offer games by genre and interest, as well as a general district for charts and themed publisher areas. Consumers access the service by a monthly subscription automatically adjusted according to usage - once inside, they have access to every title and all content.
