by Rainier on Sept. 25, 2006 @ 4:14 p.m. PDT

Set in the distant future, players will engage in highly tactical multiplayer combat as they control massive gunships capable of firing a large variety of projectiles. Hyperbol’s innovative gameplay, intense combat, and persistent universe will entice gamers spanning several genres.

“It took us a while, but we're finally ready to show the world how this game plays. Our closed beta testers really helped us to fine tune and polish several aspects of the game. They're really looking forward to open beta so more people can see how great this game is.” said Jason Fader, Iocaine's President and Lead Designer of ThreadSpace: Hyperbol. “Open beta will test the waters a bit for us. It will help us see how much the game can handle and how large of an interest gamers have in the game. We're just a team of 4 friends that left our jobs to do what we love, so it's a bit difficult for us to gauge those factors on our own without funding. We're hoping the open beta will show us what we need in order to have a successful launch.”

Multiple Ships with varying attributes are at the player's disposal as they progress in level and earn credits throughout the ongoing war.

Features:

  • Unique gameplay
  • Intense multiplayer combat
  • Up to 16 players
  • Persistent universe
  • Customizable ships
  • Addictive physics
  • Countless strategies

To participate in the open beta, sign up at http://Starport.Hyperbol.com. The test is currently not limited, but if things start breaking, signups are likely to be halted for a short time. Open beta will last for 3-4 weeks and participants will be able to experience all of the online features of ThreadSpace: Hyperbol. New gameplay videos, screenshots, and a section for the game's story have been added to the ThreadSpace: Hyperbol website (http://www.Hyperbol.com) to help show gamers what this game is about.
