Berkeley, CA - June 30, 2009
This afternoon at 3pm PDT, active Gatheryn beta testers will have the opportunity to participate in Gatheryn's first community event, The Elymia Ice Cream Social. The Ice Cream social is open only to active beta testers, but more events will be scheduled, and more users welcomed into the beta in the weeks to come. Don't miss out on the fun and excitement of Gatheryn community events - register for the beta at http://www.mindfusegames.com.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet other Elymians and exercise Gatheryn's social functionality by comparing clothing ensembles, adding others to their Friends List, or playing a game of checkers. Members of the Mindfuse staff will also be in attendance to answer questions about Elymian life and listen to feedback from users on what they like in the game, and what they'd like to see changed.
Ice cream will be distributed to all attendees as an in-game item 3 times during the event - at 3:00, 3:30 and 4:00. Using ice cream is a good way to test out Gatheryn's newly implemented health system as a single serving completely cures all fatigue. No RSVP is required for active users. The event will take place in Westpark, just outside the Broken Anchor Pub, in the Western portion of the city.

Gatheryn welcomes players into a world where steam powers everything from vehicles to mechanical monkeys, and mystery enshrouds a romantic landscape reminiscent of Charles Dickens’ Victorian London. Players will recognize some of the most beloved casual games of all time, including puzzle and action games. Playing these games will not only advance the story, but players will also earn in-game silver that can be used to buy accessories, personal pets, clothes, apartment decorations, vehicles and more. Gatheryn is scheduled for release in 2009.
