'Wish' - First Beta Phase Launched

by Rainier on Dec. 1, 2003 @ 10:05 a.m. PST

Mutable Realms, Inc. and Themis Group announced today the beginning of the highly anticipated Wish Beta. This round of Beta is scheduled to run through the end of February, 2004, quickly scaling to 20,000 users.

"We're excited to be underway," said Marc Laukien, President of Mutable Realms. "With the help of Themis Group we plan to quickly scale this phase of Beta to reach our intended goal of 5,000 simultaneous users."

Wish defines a new category of online game, the "Ultra Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game" (UMMORPG). Unlike existing MMORPGs that confine players to a server with only a few hundred other players, Wish's highly-scalable server cluster infrastructure allows the game to support tens of thousands of simultaneous players in a single shared world.

"This is the birth of an ambitious project," said Alexander Macris, CEO of Themis Group. "We're excited to be side by side with Mutable Realms helping them accomplish their goals."

Wish is planned for release in Q4 2004. More information about Wish can be found at and a Beta signup form is located at http://www.themis-
