Suzhou, China – February 21, 2012 – It’s oftentimes hard to figure out what makes an MMORTS game appealing to gamers. What will keep players coming? What goes behind the scenes? Starting this week, Barbily Games will be doing something new. Besides the new expansion that is planned for launch next week for Star Supremacy, Barbily Games is planning to do a daily event starting this week and ongoing that will bring users closer to not only the game, but also to the staff.
Those who have facebook and twitter accounts and are following and liking Star Supremacy will be treated to something special. Every day, Barbily Games will be posting up a status message on its Star Supremacy facebook and twitter accounts. The status message could be about anything. Topics range from life in general, the game, the company, and current events. Basically, anything that users can relate to. Users have the entire day to post a reply to the status message. At the end of the day, Barbily Games will post up their own reply to the status message as well as post up replies to any questions users have posted. Every now and then, the staff will check in during the day and post a reply if users start asking lots of questions.
So if we were to ask “What would you rather do: Eat a cherry pie with a bottle of Dr. Pepper while warring an alliance in game or eat a lemon meringue pie with a bottle of Sprite while raiding a GM colony?” Tough one huh? Personally, I love both pies as well as both drinks.
What is the objective of this daily event? Thomas Watson, PR Manager for Barbily, explains that “It’s our way of improving our communication and relationship with the players. Star Supremacy is a leading RTS game. We want to give users something to do while they play the game. What better way than to go on facebook and twitter and see what our users are up to. It’s a fun experience and guess what, it’s a daily event!” Players can respond to the status comments that Barbily posts up as well as ask their own questions about any topic they want. Lets get the questions and answers going!
Reminder: When the Likes on Star Supremacy Facebook page reaches 500, 1000, everyone of Star Supremacy will receive gifts. What is more, when the page reaches 30,000 likes, 3 randomly selected players will win a gaming headset—Ear Force X11 Amplified Stereo Headset with Chat!
More events are still to come. If you think you have an idea for an event in the game or community, give Barbily your thoughts here. For those who have a facebook, Star Supremacy now has a facebook game application that you can play at http://apps.facebook.com/ssupremacy
