Singapore – 20/03/2013 – Arkadia Studios partners with GUNNAR Optiks to create virtual gaming eyewear

‘Lucky Arkadians will loot the gaming glasses from GUNNAR while hunting,’ says Arkadia Studios Community Manager, Cyrus Chen. ‘This is seriously classy eyewear, and I know plenty of players who are going to be excited to see their avatars wearing them. Additionally, players can purchase the real life version directly in the game, so they can look as cool as their avatars!’

Arkadia and GUNNAR have made a limited number of virtual and real life Vayper Onyx sets available to participants with Planet Arkadia’s latest update, Arkadian Sunrise.

‘Arkadian Sunrise is the update we and our players have been waiting for,’ says Arkadia Studios CEO David Dobson. ‘There is an enormous amount of content being added which will create a lot of opportunities for players, even those who are new to the game. Our partnership with GUNNAR Optiks comes at the perfect time, and the chance to win these glasses is another great reason to get in and see what this virtual life is all about.’

GUNNARs are high tech computer eyewear, designed to protect, enhance and optimise your vision. According to Nathaniel Pope, Gunnar’s International Sales & Marketing Manager, ‘The glasses utilise a number of specific technologies to reduce the stress on your eyes that comes with the hours we now spend staring at computer screens each day.’ These technologies include FRACTYL lens geometry, DIAMIX lens material, IONIK lens tints and iFi lens coatings. ‘The human eye is not set up to look at a screen all day, which is where GUNNARs come to the rescue. We’re very pleased to be able to offer some sets to the colonists of Planet Arkadia,’ says Nathaniel, ‘and we know it will make their gaming experience much more comfortable.’

Anyone interested in trying to win a set of these glasses simply needs to visit www.planetarkadia.com/gunnar , download Planet Arkadia for free, create their avatar and get active in the game!
