VANCOUVER, BC – October 10, 2011 – Day 21 Studios, a veteran run, independent video game studio, is announcing the launch of their debut title Sky Pirates of Neo Terra. Designed for gamers ages 10 and up, Sky Pirates offers real-time online multiplayer racing, the first of its kind on Facebook.
An original game by Day 21 Studios with character designs by comic and pop surrealism artist, Camilla d'Errico, Sky Pirates’ unique visual style and thrilling racing offers gaming audiences a different kind of experience with their friends on Facebook than the typical Farm builder.
Sky Pirates takes place in the original setting of Neo Terra, a wondrous world with a rich backstory, forgotten technology and natural magic. The most popular sport in the land is Glidewing racing, which culminates in a Great Race in the valley of Neo Eden. Winning five consecutive Great Races earns the victor the right to name the leader of the Great Tribal Council. This year’s upcoming race has the cruel Pirate King poised for just that honor, one that could throw this peaceful world into turmoil.
Players get to choose their racers and Glidewings from any of the 14 tribes of Neo Terra or customize their own in order to best the Pirate King and five of their friends on over a dozen unique courses in this high-flying aerial racer.
Sky Pirates creator Sean Megaw states “Thanks to Facebook and other social networks we are in a new golden age of gaming; our mission at Day 21 Studios is to build interactive experiences that involve players both inside and outside the game. For example, if you win one of our Great Race tournaments we will draw your personalized character right into the web comic series…ultimate bragging rights.”
As a reward for registering on our official website at www.skypiratesneo.com/game we will be doing a draw for 5 pieces of Camilla’s original art from the Sky Pirates Graphic Novel.
Sky Pirates of Neo Terra can also be found in comic and bookstores as a graphic novel, or digitally through Comixology, published by Image Comics.
Visit us at Comic Con NYC October 13 – 16, 2011 visit booth 2752 in Small Press to meet artist Camilla d’Errico and Sky Pirates creator Sean Megaw and pick up your signed copy of the graphic novel.
