Madison, WI November 25, 2009 — PerBlue, Inc. has released a new title in its popular “Parallel Kingdom” line of location-based games. The game, Age of Emergence, is now available in the iTunes App Store and the Google Android Market. Age of Emergence can be played on all iPhones, iPod Touch, and Android phones. It is free to download and free to play.

The Age of Emergence adds a large number of features and significantly increases the depth of the whole game. Among the new features is the ability to found and expand cities with other players. There are four new types of dungeons players can explore and the locations of these dungeons are linked to actual features on the Google Map. Water on the Google Map is now also clearly distinguished and is played differently, adding another linkage between the game and real life. Also, all players are now ranked on a weekly basis in 20 different categories, and the top player in each category wins a trophy hat for their character.

In addition to new features, the previous game features have also been expanded by adding over a dozen new buildings, many new creatures to hunt, and over 30 new items to collect.

The developers of Parallel Kingdom will monetize the game using a micropayment-based business model. Players will be able to buy an in-game resource called Food using their iTunes account or Google Checkout. The functionality used by Parallel Kingdom for these in-app purchases was only recently added to Apple products in the 3.0 OS.
