Denmark, CA: Indie video game developer Aventurine announced plans to collaborate with New Age genius John Tesh on the soundtrack for their upcoming new expansion that goes only under the single code word: "Glitter."
"We got the Tesh, what can we say?" said Aventurine owner/head developer Tico Torres. "He's going to be a perfect fit for our new player experience, which we announced recently." Tico spoke proudly about the new up-and-coming changes to the new player experience for their hardcore PvP MMORPG called Darkfall.
"As we’ve mentioned before we’re happy to see an ever-increasing number of new players entering the game and we’re also about to introduce several initiatives and special offers to further increase these numbers." Tico continued, beaming. "We’re introducing a new feature possibly as soon as the next patch which provides optional protection against player attacks to brand new players. This functionality is very limited and only lasts a few hours but it should be enough to allow someone logging into Darkfall for the first time to learn to control his character and to get his bearings while still having proper access to the live game. "
Some of those features include a special "Welcome Basket" that can be claimed by any new account holder upon entering the game for the first time. Inside the basket the 19 year old man would find a battle-axe, some incense and a blank journal to keep track of his exploits. Also, the new player will find himself welcomed home by the sound of glittering silver trumpets every time he logs in.
The changes are not without controversy, however, as the official forums for the game hosted post after post of poorly worded threats and entire paragraphs that warned, in detail, of what we think is death. Or disco, we can't tell.
We reached The Tesh for comment, on break from his whirl-wind 50 city/2 year "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em" world tour:
While the exact date of release for this new expansion is not known, many fan-sties are estimating it's arrival some time in the spring.
(No, I don't think Darkfall is turning into a Candyland. I just thought this was funny.)
