For immediate release
Sunnyvale, Calif. -March 28, 2008– Gala-Net has announced a new Achievement System for their popular free-to-play game portal, gPotato.com. These achievements will provide new goals for their users to strive toward, along with the ability to show off their achievements and gain in-game benefits for completing them.
GPotato users can earn achievements by completing specific objectives within gPotato games. Every gPotato user has a profile page, and on this page they can show off their achievements, their scores in the various gPotato games, post information about themselves, and post to their own blog.
Every night, the Achievement System will detect any new achievements a user might have unlocked. When they have unlocked a new achievement, the achievement will be displayed on their profile page. They will also be given a point reward, called pChips. PChips can then be spent on in-game items found in a special web-shop.
“We wanted to provide our users with more goals,” said Michael Powers, Producer at Gala-Net.“We hope users will enjoy showing off their accomplishments to each other and form a stronger community.”
The Achievement System will first launch within the gPotato game Rappelz. The system will later be added to Flyff and the other gPotato games.
