On a related note, Naughty America also announced that it is moving forward with plans to make additional in-game advertising opportunities available, as well as secure additional distribution partnerships.
"We are completely committed to providing users with the safest possible gaming and social networking experiences in Naughty America: The Game," stated a spokesman for Naughty America. "Sentry will help us to ensure that these objectives are met with the most advanced technology available."
"Sentry is committed to creating safer and more secure online dating, social networking, and marketplace experiences," said John Cardillo, CEO of Sentry. "Bringing our services and expertise to the world of multiplayer gaming is an exciting evolution for our company and a tremendously reliable feature for Naughty America: The Game."
Each member subscribing to Naughty America: The Game will have the option of providing personal information which will be instantly verified through Sentry. This includes an immediate check of the user to detect a criminal and/or sexual offender history. Upon completing the Sentry process and obtaining verification, a special seal will appear on the member's personal profile, indicating to other players that their background screen contained no negative information. This is updated every three months and will allow the entire gaming community to be a safer and more secure place.
Scheduled to go live in the Spring of 2006, Naughty America: The Game is a new twist on the world of online dating, combining in-game chat functionality with real-world profiles along with a heaping dose of entertaining games and exploration features. It is intended for mature adults, with a credit card required for age verification purposes. Featuring fun and stylish game play, users create a unique fantasy persona by choosing from different body types, skin tones, and clothing options. Choices can even be enhanced at any time by visiting plastic surgeons, clothing shops, hair salons, tattoo parlors and other in-game hot spots.
Naughty America: The Game also features "Sex Mode" for the truly adventurous. This is entered into strictly by mutual consent and can be exited at any time. Unlike some games, Naughty America respects a player's decision to participate only in activities in which they feel comfortable.
