London, 30th September 2009 – dx the leading custom hosting solution and services provider dedicated to the games industry, is pleased to announce that it is providing infrastructure, hosting and IP transit for the astonishing, intriguing and inspiring MMO, LOVE.
With an "open" Alpha and the likelihood of a significant initial take up dx has deployed infrastructure across the UK and USA which is capable of being expanded with minimal notice in line with user demand.
This flexibility will enable Quel Solar to focus on the Alpha whilst dx delivers world-class performance and infrastructure in an economic manner to match the uniqueness of this outstanding game.
Dominic Silk CEO of dx said; “ LOVE is a truly remarkable game and dx is absolutely thrilled to be working with Quel Solar and Eskil Steenburg to provide the hosting and infrastructure for this groundbreaking MMO”.
Eskil Steenburg of Quel Solar said; “With the Alpha test ready to launch it was important for me to work with a company that really understood the needs of such a unique game. dx took the time to examine the requirements and ensure flexibility so that LOVE can be tested on a variety of hardware across two continents. This Alpha evaluation period will guarantee that the infrastructure is tailored to the specific needs of LOVE”.
Populated with weird animals and wondrous, gaseous visuals, LOVE is a lavish and unique procedurally generated universe. Designed as a communal adventure, where gamers work together to build settlements, defend them from enemy attack, and explore the surrounding world and its many dungeons. Players will be able to do things such as deform elements of terrain, allowing them to build tunnel networks or walls to defend their settlements. Part Zelda, part Tale In The Desert, part adventure shooter, and wholly abstract and beautiful, LOVE looks being “one of the most precious events in PC gaming”.
