A recent blog post by PerBlue CEO Justin Beck tells the latest:
Today we have some exciting news. On October 31st, 2008 the Parallel Kingdom Age of Exploration will be released! This is the first of many ages to come. This age will be a free beta that will run on any iPhone, iPod Touch, or Android Handset device. Parallel Kingdom uses location-based features to place the virtual world over the real world, where you can kill creatures, collect gold, and destroy your friends. We hope you enjoy this age, and look forward to many ages to come.
Parallel Kingdom is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG)--or as PerBlue describes it, a mobile multiplayer trans-reality game (MMTRG)--that overlays the real world with a location-based game world, allowing the most humble neighborhood street to host the mightiest of towered citadels that must be breached for loot. It holds the promise of turning the daily commute into a bold adventure and we expect it to be a hot download when it appears in the App Store.
More screenshots can be seen at the Parallel Kingdom website.
Stay tuned for more information on this title as well as a full review once it makes its debut in the App Store.
