Virtual World Fantage Welcomes Easter with In-Game Festivities

FORT LEE, N.J. – April 5 , 201 2 Greeting Easter with a basketful of in-game activities, kid-friendly virtual world Fantage.com ( Fantage), is kicking off the holiday with a week-long “Bunny Bash 2012”. Beginning today and ending on Wednesday, April 11, the world’s young players can enjoy several new mini-games, accumulate free gifts and a valuable medal, and collect Easter-themed limited items at www.fantage.com.

The Bunny Bash 2012 features include:

  • Mini-games
    • Find the Eggs! – Players are tasked with uncovering hidden eggs by clicking areas they want to explore. Their character will move to that section and the spot will be revealed; however there are a limited number of clicks allotted to find the goal number of eggs, so players are encouraged to plan their search well.
    • Easter Egg Drop – In this game, users are in charge of non-playable character (NPC) Kawaii, and must move her side-to-side to collect the target number of eggs before time runs out.
    • Egg Decoration – Players put their artistic skills to the test in this game, clicking paint colors to apply a stencil, and then dragging to a white egg to apply the effect. To complete the game successfully, they must match the given image in the time limit.
    • Egg Colorator – Players start out with three conveyor belts of eggs and must shoot them to add color to as many eggs as possible before time runs out.
  • Group game
    • Egg Color Battle – Two teams face off with the goal of collecting the most colored eggs. White eggs fall from the top of the screen, while players use their crosshair tool to click and color as many eggs as possible.
  • Egg-coloring fountain – Players can celebrate the season by buying their character an egg costume and exploring the Fantage world to discover egg-coloring fountains. Fountains are located in different areas, so players can walk through to embellish their exterior with any one of four random patterns.
  • Free gift – Available on April 8, players can collect a free Easter egg for a limited time.
  • Easter egg scavenger hunt – 20 eggs will be hidden throughout the Fantage world.  Players will be awarded five stars per egg they find, with a bonus of 100 stars for any player who finds all 20 eggs in one day.
