eRepublik Reaches the 100,000 Citizen Mark



    The MMOG Gathers Together Players From Almost 200 Countries

    MADRID, April 8 /CNW/ - Last Friday marked the 500th day of the eRepublik
world and along with it an important milestone - reaching the 100,000 active
citizen mark. Since its launch, many new countries and functionalities have
been added increasing the vast number of options players have to interact
among each other.
    "We are happy to announce that eRepublik currently attracts the interest
of over 100,000 real people who spend an average of 15 minutes per day in our
New World having fun with friends from around the globe and pursuing their
professional, political and military careers," comments Alexis Bonte,
Co-founder and CEO of eRepublik.
    eRepublik citizens have created more than 11,000 companies and over
28,000 newspapers. Presently, there are 51 countries available, with new ones
being launched frequently. The most populated countries currently include the
US, Indonesia, Romania, Hungary and the UK.
    eRepublik is a massively multiplayer online strategy game which is set in
a mirror world where players (citizens), join in local and national politics,
set economic policy, start businesses and wage wars with other countries.
    eRepublik is built around the concept of a daily social experience. One
of its advantages over other strategy games is that it demands a smaller
fraction of users' free time (15 minutes/day), while providing them a much
deeper experience for that time.

    
    Key features:

    -   Free access
    -   User-friendly & browser based
    -   No downloads/installation
    -   Not time consuming
    -   Device agnostic
    -   No Artificial Intelligence, only human interaction
    

    Over 95% of the eRepublik world has been created by its citizens; its
social based game play allows it to spread virally in terms of content and
users, with almost no distribution and development costs. In March of 2009,
http://www.erepublik.com received over 2,5 million visits and 66 million page
views, with citizens spending a total of 38 million minutes navigating the
eRepublik world.
