Forrest Woolworth of PerBlue emailed me today to let me know that they just launched their third age of their popular mobile game Parallel Kingdom.Â Parallel Kingdom is a mobile, location based, MMORPG, or Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.Â PerBlue recently closed an $800,000 funding round and has been using the money to continue to grow their flagship game, Parallel Kingdom.
Launched in October 2008, Parallel Kingdom now has over 250,000 users from around the globe.Â PK is one of the first games that allows users to interact in a game and in the real world at the same time.
The fourth age, called Age of Thrones, adds the new Kingdoms feature.Â “Since Parallel Kingdom’s conception two years ago, we knew we wanted to let players build entire Kingdoms,” PerBlue CEO Justin Beck said. “We took our time to make sure it was done right. In my opinion, Kingdoms are the deepest and most social feature of their kind in any mobile game.”
Kingdoms will allow small and large groups to officially organize. Players work together to build and run their Kingdom by strategically allocating resources, managing diplomatic relationships, and of course, waging war. All Kingdoms will be ranked globally on their war victories as well as their overall influence.
Parallel Kingdom is available for free on the iPhone and Android.Â PerBlue generates revenue by selling their virtual currency, Food, which allows users to acquire new weapons, abilities and powers.
