Telos International, an independent videogame development company, announced today that City of Sinners & Saints, a massively multiplayer online social networking game is scheduled to open the gates to its virtual city (Manatee Bay) in Summer 2009.
“City of Sinners & Saints is being specifically built for the next generation of virtual world travelers,” says Sean Yeomans, president, Telos International. “Our vision is to offer a new kind of experience beyond the normal boundaries of social networking. The city is a place where visitors can enjoy rich content of cartoon-style graphics, comedic story lines, casual games, and social related quests that offer endless hours of challenging yet light-hearted fun.”
Built with the ground-breaking Multiverse Platform, City of Sinners & Saints is being designed for the next generation of social networkers looking for an expanded experience on a website. The city will offer virtual travelers from around the globe the opportunity to socialize with friends, create unique characters, play casual games, purchase virtual goods and real estate, and shop online for their favorite products – all within an original world where a laugh is around every corner.
City of Sinners & Saints offers:
* All the same key features found in other social networking products, while introducing a 3D comedic, cartoon-based style metaphor of the real world.
* A virtual friendship manager – track who is online, who is in your top ten, who youve interacted with and block those pesky players you dont want to talk with.
* Animotes that break free of the simple happy faces that players have seen for years and come alive in pre-rendered animated comedic video sequences.
* An open world experience where players can complete comedic quests to earn in-game currency to purchase gifts for friends, acquire living space, new clothing, furniture and a variety of accessories.
