Luminary: Rise of the GoonZu

All servers now to be operated by NDOORS.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - March 31, 2009

NDOORS Interactive today announced changes coming to the world of their MMORPG, Luminary: Rise of the GoonZu. Starting April 1, 2009, ‘A Fellowship of Luminarians’ has been created by the acquisition of all Luminary servers under the banner of NDOORS Interactive. The Hera and Athena servers, formerly operated by NHN, will now be wholly owned and operated by NDOORS Interactive. To welcome all players from Hera and Athena as well as new players into NDOORS’ ‘Fellowship of Luminarians,’ a series of content updates and celebratory events will take place this April.

The server acquisition will not adversely affect market conditions or existing players on any of the servers. Existing players on Athena and Hera will still log in through Ijji.com. However, all updates, events and support will now be administered by NDOORS Interactive. NDOORS is kick-starting the acquisition with a 200% bonus experience for all players. The following events will be taking place this April to unite the entire Luminary community and give new players a chance to get off to a quick start.

Weapon Design Contest – Open April 1-26, this is players’ chance to design their own weapon and have NDOORS make it come to life in game. The winner will receive their weapon creation in-game as well as 5,000 G Coins Welcome Celebration – Item giveaways, 200% experience boost and more from April 1-5 Item Mall Spring Raffle – Players who purchase at least 3,000 G Coins between April 1-12 will be eligible to win King Raccoon and Evil Raccoon plush dolls

NDOORS fully plans to keep the gameplay experience fresh and demonstrate their loyalty to the fans with a series of updates for Luminary rolling out this Spring. In the spirit of the unification, a new marriage system is being introduced which will allow players to form a union in game. In addition, there will be new hunting grounds for players to conquer including "Lost World" where players will be able to hunt and kill dinosaurs.

Luminary: Rise of the GoonZu is a free-to-play MMORPG that incorporates real-world politics and economics. Players are citizens of the Luminary world who not only battle monsters, but engage in the production of new goods, trade commodities, stocks, real estate, and even hire NPCs. Additionally, a player can become the pinnacle of success, the “GoonZu”, by being elected by his gaming peers.
