Players Tie the Knot in La Tale

El Segundo, Calif.-May 5, 2009- Wedding bells are ringing in OGPlanet's La Tale. Players can now date, become engaged and have lovely in-game wedding ceremonies in the 2D side-scrolling MMORPG.

With the newly implemented Affection System, La Tale players can recreate the natural process of falling in love. Once two players begin a relationship, they will gain affection points while they play. As they spend more and more time exploring the world of La Tale together, their relationship level will increase. Once the couple reaches the highest level of relationship points, one partner can present the other with a proposal, using special proposal items purchasable in-game.

Once the happy couple has decided to tie the knot, it will be time for the big event! The couple, dressed in their wedding attire, will be teleported to a wedding hall, where their friends can watch and chat as the ceremony takes place. The monsters of La Tale even get in on the action, dropping food presents for everyone in attendance.

After the wedding, the newlyweds will be entitled to many benefits, including special buffs in combat based on their affection score. They can wear Silver Rings to increase their stats, or Gold Rings to easily teleport to each other.

If married life doesn't turn out to be so blissful, couples can seek a divorce. Choosing to end a relationship, however, doesn't come without a cost. Players must pay to dissolve their marriage, and they will both be prevented from beginning another relationship for a set period of time.

"The new marriage system adds another layer of depth to La Tale, further immersing players in the virtual world" said Ross Park, La Tale's producer. "It also gives players a fun way to team up, and rewards them for building friendships and working together."
