Aeria Games Spotlights the Human Race for Lime Odyssey: The Chronicles of Orta

SANTA CLARA, Calif.  – Mar. 15, 2012Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, today revealed new screenshots and the opening cinematic for the Human race, one of the three playable races in Lime Odyssey: The Chronicles of Orta, its highly-anticipated 3D massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).   Lime Odyssey is currently in production and will be published in North America by Aeria Games in 2012.

The Humans in Lime Odyssey begin their journey in Blue Coral, a thriving land abundant with vibrant plants and sea life.  While home to many welcoming animals, the forest and beach are inhabited by some that are hostile to the humans.  Venturing too far to the north will lead players into Baron Northpallor’s Manor, a less than hospitable mansion. Diving into the depths of the Beren Sea, players will discover a plentiful bounty of treasure and fearsome creatures guarding it.

Before Lime entered the world once again, Humans made their living on the open sea. Their lives were not easy, nor were the seas kind, but humanity struggled on. Five hundred years ago, a broken and battered ship was forced to make harbor in a land filled with coral. The proud ship Green Leaf ran aground and sunk below the waves, and the humans that emerged fared little better than their vessel. Thin and weak from lack of food, they carried their children onto the shore and determined that this land should now be their home.

Within the forest, the surviving crew of the Green Leaf built a thriving community based around the coral of the area. They named their town Blue Coral, and many of the world’s greatest craftsmen came from this small coastal area. Young humans still cannot escape the adventurous spirit of their ancestors, and many have left home to seek out the Goddess’ Lime.

The vast continent of Orta is home to a diverse collection of races and tribes. Players can choose from a variety of customization options to design their ideal character – create a bold young Human thief, a battle-hardened Turga, or a diminutive Muris – the choice is theirs! Each race begins their quest in a unique starting location.

Lime Odyssey: The Chronicles of Orta will be free to download and free to play. Interested players can learn more about Lime Odyssey and sign up to participate in the upcoming closed beta test at: http://limeodyssey.aeriagames.com.
