14 September 2011, Singapore and Malaysia – The excitement was felt throughout E2MAX @ Cathay Cineleisure on the 4 th of September 2011 as AuditionSEA clubbers sauntered into the cybercafe for the annual celebration that they had all been waiting for. It was the 5 th birthday

for AuditionSEA ( www.AuditionSEA.com), a free-to-play online dancing MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game).

Carnival delights such as free candy floss, airbrush tattoo and Polaroid photo redemption broke the ice among fellow clubbers and their friends and before long, excited chatter could be heard throughout the event area. Not long after though, the air grew tense as eight clubbers took their

seats at the computer stations. As it was later revealed, they were the skilled mode-masters who were assigned the unenvied tasks of engaging other clubbers in online dance battles. The respective modes for challenge were Crazy Choreography 8, Crazy Choreography 4, Beat Rush

and Guitar Mode. Fun and excitement ensued as challengers stepped up to try and defeat the mode-masters for exclusive premiums and cool in-game items.

In conjunction with the 5 th birthday celebration, clubbers who were at the event had an exclusive preview of the upcoming content, due to be released today. Aptly named “Couple Garden”, in-game couples can now strengthen their love and gameplay by creating a garden of their own,

cultivating and harvesting crops. Single clubbers now also have a new reason to expand their circle of friends, in the hope of finding their other half in the game in order to enjoy the new features.

The Couple Garden mode is very similar to wildly popular farming games found on social networks. In this mode, couples will need to plant seeds, water them, tending to their gardens and reap the harvest when the plants are fully grown. The growth cycle goes through five phases, and

like most farming games, if the garden is neglected, the plants will wilt, and couples will need some Audition cash to revive their wilted garden. To encourage couples to take care of their crops, rewards are given for their efforts, and upon harvesting, couples may even receive couple

points and rare items. Couples who spend the most time and effort on their gardens will also be featured on the ranking system for this mode.

“We are delighted to see so many ardent supporters of AuditionSEA, especially those who turned up today for the 5 th Birthday Bash. We are also happy to find out that AuditionSEA has remained one of the most popular dancing games in the hearts of our players," said Sherman Tan,

Chairman of Asiasoft Online. "At the same time, we are very excited about the new Couple Garden Mode at the same time as this mode definitely brings a new dimension to engage with our gamers, as well as providing more opportunities for them to bond and interact through a common

activity, which in this case, cultivation of their own gardens.”

The celebration was a great success as seeds of love were spread among the clubbers, who walked away with fond memories, great gifts and wonderful prizes, and not forgetting the delicious birthday cake as well as the exclusive preview of the new, eagerly anticipated Couple Garden

Mode! Visit www.AuditionSEA.com for more details.
