IGF 2008 Student Competition Entrant

Skyrates

School: Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center (Pittsburgh, PA United States)

Game Website: http://www.skyrates.net


Description:
(Skyrate = Sky+Pirate) Join us in Skytopia and become an airborne privateer; fight, trade, and explore your way to fame and fortune in a fantastic world of floating islands where zeppelins rule the skies!
Skyrates began as an experiment in sporadic play, the idea that a game can be experienced in several, short play sessions rather than in one large chunk of time. Think of it like your email, where you just check in when you can. A few minutes here and there, spread throughout your entire day. Through sporadic play, Skyrates creates a new world for busy people by providing a persistent multiplayer world in the context of a casual flash game.
Take a side, and fight with or against other players. You’re all part of the world of Skytopia, and what you do affects the other players and the world. Your actions will earn you experience and gold that can be used to improve your character, upgrade your ship, or even purchase a new one. So, whether you're a peaceful trader, a careful diplomat, or a bold fighter, the sky's the limit!



If you seen any information about Skyrates that needs to be corrected or updated, contact the IGF Chairman.
