Major expansion to a classic online RPG MUD, Alter Aeon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Louisville, Kentucky -- November 8, 2010 -- Dentinmud Internet Services announces a major expansion to its flagship game designed for the blind and sighted, Alter Aeon ( http://www.alteraeon.com).

By adding new features such as undead armies and demon summoning, the new Necromancer class dramatically expands the options and abilities available to players.

Combining the features of this expansion with the previously existing classes gives players an unprecedented number of new ways to investigate and play the game. The Necromancers don't just summon demons and raise undead armies. They also have new dark magic and spirit abilities and can use dragon teeth as powerful spell components.

High-level necromancers can create and manage many minions at once.

"This is one of the biggest expansions in Alter Aeon history," says Alter Aeon creator Dennis Towne. "We explicitly designed the additions to complement and enhance the previous skills and spells, without compromising ease of play or obsoleting existing characters. Above all, we've maintained the great accessibility that our visually impaired players rely on."

About Alter Aeon:

Alter Aeon has been under active development for more than 15 years.

Alter Aeon began as a multiplayer text game in early 1995. In the late 1990's, the blind and visually impaired began to access the internet using screen reader software; as a text-based game, Alter Aeon was well suited to this crowd. Since the year 2000, there have been many updates to reduce barriers and improve the gaming experience for both blind and sighted players, with the development of a custom MUD client and player-contributed sound packs.

About Dentinmud Internet Services:

Dentinmud Internet Services originally started as a small hosting company in 1997, providing mail, DNS, web services, and MUD hosting. Just prior to 2000, one of these MUDs, Alter Aeon, came under the company umbrella. With the success of Alter Aeon, the company has shifted away from hosting and now focuses exclusively on online game development.
