Social gamers battle psycho ghosts in Gaia's haunting online Halloween event
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaia Interactive, owner of Gaia Online, the world's most active social gaming community with more than eight million young adult members, today announced Grave Danger! – Gaia's 2010 Halloween game. The eagerly awaited event attracts thousands of gamers each year for an opportunity to battle evil ghosts and other ghoulish terrors.
Players in the game will be tasked with freeing the souls haunting a neglected cemetery. For decades the Omnidrink Corporation has been dumping toxic waste into the graveyard next to its factory. The toxic sludge has created a barrier that is preventing the souls of the dead from reaching their final resting place. Only one man stood up against the company, working tirelessly to discover a chemical compound that will break the spell. Gamers will join the clever scientist in battling corporate misdeeds to free imprisoned souls.
"Our audience enjoys games with smart, sassy social commentary," said Mike Sego, CEO of Gaia Interactive. "This new adventure brings fun social game mechanics into an exciting environment of beautiful Halloween-themed visuals, and continues our tradition of massive holiday events."
Now in its sixth year, this is one of the most popular holiday events on the site. There were over 470,000 players last year, with Gaia awarding 16 million virtual items to participating gamers. Grave Danger! is available on Gaia Online through November 8. Gamers can earn Gaia Gold to purchase Halloween-inspired virtual goods as well as traditional items in the Gaia marketplace.
