Love on Inline Skates: Street Gears is celebrating Valentine’s day

Press release

For immediate release

Dublin, Ireland– 11th February 2010. Street Gears, the free cell-shaded inline skating MMO, is celebrating its Asian Love Festival from the 10th February to the 3rd of March 2010. The background story of that festival is the tragic love story of a samurai whose beloved was kidnapped. In the ongoing story he became the first“rider” in Street Gears.

For three weeks, all Street Gears players will have the opportunity to join numerous events and tournaments under the umbrella of the Asian Love Festival. Decorations will be placed all over Park Town, lanterns and banner will give an additional atmosphere and an Asian background music completes the romantic ambiance. During the festival, players of every level will get amorous gifts and love surprises.

Besides brand new Asian costumes in a Ninja and Kimono style for all six characters, racing teams can look forward to additional crazy outfits. In trendy racing suits, e.g. a dragon, players can race through Park Town and get on the racing tracks. For the ones who weren’t lucky last year and couldn’t get their own fancy costume, there is good news: both costumes are available again during this year’s Asian Love Festival.

In this update, another brand new feature is the dynamic day and night time implemented in the game. At 8am the sun will rise over Park Town and will set at 8pm on the horizon.
