Hong Kong based Artificial Life, Inc. today announced the upcoming release of its first massive multi-player 3G mobile game.
The new game is based in its style and core functionality on the Company's award winning v-girl(tm) and virtual boyfriend 3G game series. The game establishes a massive multi-user virtual community and is custom-built for 3G phones; however, it can also be played on 2.5G and 2.75G/EDGE phones with slightly reduced functionality and speed.
Players select a virtual personal for themselves and inhabit and live in a simulated virtual city. When navigating through the virtual city, users can contact and interact directly with other players in real time, have life real time chats with other human players or chatter bots, enter and explore virtual buildings, use interactive objects and cooperate with others to solve certain tasks or to avoid certain threats. The game is expected to become a widely popular new type of interactive mobile dating game.
The new game runs with Java J2ME clients on an extended version of Artificial Life's Distributed Smart Engine Mobile Platform(tm). Players can interact with a potentially unlimited number of concurrent users.
The new game is scheduled for launch in Q4, 2005. The game name and brand will be announced in the coming weeks along with further game features and details.
