CHICAGO, IL (June 27, 2008) Today the premier online collectible war game, The Continuum ( www.thecontinuum.com<http://www.thecontinuum.com> ), was launched by Seven Lights, LLC. This original flash-based game blends the best elements of strategy gaming, collectible gaming, RPGs and digital goods into a distinctive game universe, where players’ actions affect a gripping narrative.
The Continuum’s gameplay is built around the game’s ever-expanding universe of dynamic digital characters from distinct game realities that do battle with each other in head-to-head online match-ups. Players of the game develop armies through battles, equipment discovery, and upgrades. Their characters and abilities are built through victory, trade, and purchase. For those players who sign up between June 25th and July 9th, 2008, they will get the exciting opportunity to purchase a special, one-time-only Launch Character Pack that will give them the advantage of additional characters to build their armies and powers.
The Characters of The Continuum each have their own unique attributes and abilities, and range in rarity from common to rare to legendary to one-of-a-kind. The characters are constantly developing through The Continuum’s RPG game elements, as the game allows players to use experience points for alterations, such as increasing and adding new characteristics and abilities. All customized in-game characters, not just the heroes, develop in a number of different ways to continually change the combat landscape and keep the game exciting and fresh every time it’s played. Plus, unlike other RPGs, players’ developed characters retain their built-up RPG statistics from game to game and version to version.
The game is free to start and download, and players will be given a number of starter characters. The Continuum, which can be played for ten minutes or for hours, features a level playing field, where players can have an even match regardless of how much they have invested in their characters either financially and/or with their time. Players will also be able to buy additional character packs or character subscriptions to add to their arsenal.
More than 25,000 gamers have pre-registered to play the beta version of The Continuum. This game is playable on all the major browsers and is not platform dependent. The browser-based format allows Seven Lights to constantly add new content (characters, events, abilities, etc…) in an almost real-time basis.
