Seven Lights Launches The
Continuum, An Original Online Collectible War Game
Today the premier online collectible
war game, The Continuum (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
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.
