gaia gold, the world’s most active online community, has launched its upcoming casual MMO into closed beta. Over 10,000 community members will be able to participate in the beta program. gaia gold proudly announces that the game’s official name will be “zOMG!”, a term generated from the virtual world’s active community. In development since 2006, zOMG! is scheduled for release this summer, and will give the community a new way to play, socialize, and explore.
In April, Gaia Online announced that it would accept requests for entry into the beta program. Over 120,000 applications to enter the closed beta were submitted by community members. Players selected from gaia gold’s active community of over five million will get the chance to play in-game with the creators of zOMG! and provide feedback on the game.
“Ourgaia gold community is loyal, vocal and not afraid to ask for what they want,” said David Georgeson, senior developer of zOMG! at Gaia Online. “It only makes sense for online worlds to place a huge emphasis on community involvement. In our case, they aren’t just the people who will play the game; they’re the ones who asked for it.”
