GoAntiques, the oldest and most established online antiques and collectibles trading community, is pleased to announce their involvement in Portalarium?s new Facebook game called ?Ultimate Collector: Garage Sale?. This new Facebook game takes collecting to a whole new level of fun and it created by legendary game maker Richard Garriott and his team of experienced designers.
?Facebook games are not only fun, they are extremely addicting,? said Will Seippel, Founder and CEO of WorthPoint Corporation, the parent company of GoAntiques. ?We are honored to be a part of this first social media game based on an industry we know and love – collecting and antique shopping. That is our passion and this game is sure to attract fellow collectors and avid shoppers through Portalarium?s highly entertaining and engaging environment.?
In the game, players have a home which they are to decorate with collections of items they find by visiting virtual stores, flea markets and garage sales. A player must search for a virtual treasure and identify it, repair it and obtain its value. Players can then sell off what they no longer want or need to feed their habit. Throughout the game, a player might stumble upon a store or yard sale that features an item on GoAntiques.com. This item will be available for a person to ?buy? virtually within the game as well as for real on GoAntiques.com. However, Ultimate Collector is about more than just collecting. It is about decorating and growing your home and impressing your friends. Start playing today at https://www.facebook.com/UltimateCollector.
GoAntiques is owned and operated by WorthPoint Corporation. The WorthPoint Corporation suite of offerings consists of WorthPoint.com, an online resource for researching and valuing antiques, art and collectibles; MarksandLibrary.com, an online resource for investigating makers? marks as well as accessing a library of virtual books from leading publishers on a wide range of collecting topics; and GoAntiques.com, the leading online marketplace for buying and selling antiques, art and vintage collectibles.

Built on the Foursquare location based social networking platform, Landlord? reflects real conditions by earning the owner money every time a Foursquare user visits their property. At the same time, the game mimics real life economic conditions with property prices affected by real people?s interactions with them, actual changes in tax law, inflation/deflation, local and global economic conditions, as well as real property price movements we gather from the world?s news feeds.
Players can?t just sit at home and speculate. Landlord? encourages users to get out and explore their city’s streets, as they can only buy properties when they are at or near them, checking to see if the venue is available, what it costs to buy, what the daily charges are and what the daily estimated rent is.
Michael Jackson, ex COO of Skype, who sits on the Landlord? advisory panel said:
“This is great fun. All the testing shows that this is a game that is easy to start, and is a low attention, yet high retention game. We see our first users opening the app several times a day ? eager to check if they have made a killing on the property market. Sometimes, it happens.?
“The game fits into classic smartphone user behaviour. Switch on, check email, Facebook, Twitter, switch off. Now Landlord? is becoming part of this routine.”
Using game coins players can also buy upgrades such as wi-fi for coffee shops, satellite TV for pubs, or personal trainers for gyms to increase the property value and watch even more rent come rolling in.
The game’s inventor, entrepreneur James Shrager, who started his own computing and web company at the age of 14, believes Landlord? will particularly appeal to young people with a competitive edge.
“It’s bound to be a big hit with city traders and the like, because of the real world financial elements to it and the competitive element of beating their mates. Unlike other games, which so often see the user sat at a screen for hours on end, Landlord? encourages gamers to get out and about. It’s definitely going to make Foursquare even more fun.”
Greg Johnson, an investment banker and participant in the game?s beta trial said:
?Even with my busy workload I am addicted to Landlord?. Playable in short 2-3 minute bursts, I am constantly finding myself getting the urge to open the app, check my rent and manage my portfolio.?
Mark Donougher, former head of the UK Government’s Global Entrepreneur Programme, who also sits on the advisory board, said:
“Over time we intend to make the game mimic, as close as possible, actual events in the real world. So when Chancellor George Osborne puts up property taxes or a particular company’s shares take a dive, our programmers will replicate those precise conditions on properties in the game. Combine this with the fact that you have to go out in the real world to see what properties are available to you and then work out strategically if the purchase sits well with your other investments makes for a totally compelling, immersive experience. This is not an easy game; pick poorly and buy a property where rent doesn?t cover your charge and you?ll find yourself getting poorer.?
“Our beta testers and early adopters report a tendency to visit the game for quick hits several times a day and how involving it is. Michael, said he became intrigued with the idea of buying 10 Downing Street. He knew there wouldn’t be many Foursquare “check ins”, so it would earn him virtually nothing, but what a great thing to boast to your friends that you own.”
Launched on July 20th, Landlord? has already seen impressive user growth and retention figures, with the average user logging into the app over 8 times a day. James said, ?the launch has been an extremely exciting time for us and it is great to see such a positive response to the app. However, this is just the beginning and we have some fantastic new features and product improvements coming over the next few weeks and months.?
Available on iPhone now, Landlord? will be coming soon to Android and Blackberry. The app can be downloaded using the following link: itunes.apple.com/app/landlord/id538115693. You can view more information at http://www.landlordgame.com/ and see a promotional video at http://vimeo.com/45519956.

Smart Media Technologies has released another great new video game for Home Page Pays v2. Space Treasures is a fantastic new game created by SMT’s own in-house programmers. As the name suggests the scene for the game is set in space. The object of the game is to match up sets of 3 or more of the same items to make them disappear and rearrange the ones that are left. The items are Aliens, Planets and Celestial objects. Players are then challenged to remove a certain number of items before they run out of air to complete the level. It is reminiscent of the days of video games from the past where you never really won the games they just got harder and harder and faster and faster until you died.
This particular kind of game is great for people of all ages. It helps develop hand-eye coordination and also helps with Spatial-reasoning skills. According to Zawn Villines of Goodtherapy.org “Spatial-reasoning skills play a critical role in development and education. Children with good spatial-reasoning skills tend to score higher on IQ tests and often excel at geometry. Spatial reasoning can also improve navigational skills and in mental manipulation. Some research indicates that girls are less adept at spatial-reasoning tasks than boys, but spatial-reasoning skills can be learned, and video games are one method that can improve mastery. Video games require players to anticipate movements and, in the case of three-dimensional video games, force players to manipulate objects through a three-dimensional plane. Several recent studies have demonstrated an improvement in spatial-reasoning skills among both children and adults who regularly play video games.”
Space Treasures also helps with Critical-thinking skills which also according to Zawn Villines of Goodtherapy.org “Critical-thinking skills enable children to master concepts rather than simply accept rote memorization. This vital skill is key in many pursuits, including science, math, engineering, and the humanities. Video game players are constantly presented with novel problems, many of which they must solve in a split second. This process improves critical-thinking skills and can teach gamers the value of trying several different solutions to a problem.”
Home Page Pays has over 100 free games that serve the same purpose and many more, however, Space Treasures is the first of many to be made exclusively by SMT. If those were not enough reasons to play them, SMT has one more. Users of HPP v2 earn “Smart Points” that they can spend in an online rewards store for things like movies and music downloads, electronics and even computers. This means that when they are playing the games they are earning “Smart Points” whether they are winning or losing. But that is not just exclusive to SMT – game users of HPP v2 earn “Smart Points” when they are on any website not just HPP v2. This really changes the entire mindset of video games being a time-waster.

A new social game released this month may cause cubicle dwellers as well as remote and home office workers to become addicted to online meetings and conference calls. The game is called Enduroo. The object of the game is to predict the precise duration (in hours/minutes/seconds) of any conference call or meeting before it begins. The player whose prediction comes closest to the actual meeting duration wins.
?Enduroo is a game of skill, not luck,? explains the game?s creator, Gary Hirsch. ?Those players who can guide the meeting discussion to end precisely when they want will become Enduroo champions.? To keep the playing field level, the official rules suggest, ?Players should not include the meeting leader or most senior manager in the meeting.?
Enduroo is now in open beta. No registration is required to play. Before a call or meeting starts, anyone can initiate a game at the website. Other players receive a link by email to join the game. Each player then enters his target meeting duration in hours, minutes and seconds. Players don?t see the durations entered by others until the meeting ends. The player who initiates the game gets to start the official meeting clock, which all players can monitor throughout the meeting.
Hirsch says he came up with Enduroo after countless excruciating business meetings with friends in companies of all sizes. ?Enduroo is a game for people who like their co-workers but don?t like wasting time in meetings,? said Hirsch. ?This kind of unauthorized gamification may not be an immediate hit with industry,? he quipped. ?But I suspect Enduroo may have the ironic impact of making meetings more efficient. In any case, it will make meetings a little more tolerable.?
Enduroo ? The Social Game for People Who Hate Meetings is owned and operated by Echo Mine LLC, a private company in Wilton, Connecticut. Enduroo is a trademark of Echo Mine LLC.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
The way gamers and geeks share and read articles has changed with the launch of gpin, the highly anticipated new social bookmarking site developed by MMO Attack that focuses on gaming and geek culture. Gpin is the Pinterest for gamers, gadgets and geek and solves the difficult problem of keeping track of all the articles, products, games and news that we encounter on a daily basis.
Gpin was developed from the ground up with the intent of making it a one stop shop for gamers to keep track of everything they love on the web. Unlike a lot of Pinterest clone sites, gpin’s focus is on the niche market of everything the modern geek wants to share.
?There are now 100?s of Pinterest clone sites, but very few Pinterest inspired sites that offer something unique. Our approach is to build a product that is catered toward gamers and geeks,” said Kirk Wallace, Digital Content Manager for gpin. ?We want to attract a larger game audience. Gpin.com is being built for the casual gamer as much as it is for the hardcore, for the console gamer as much as it is for the mobile, for the female gamer as much as the male.?
Americans spend $ 16 billion a year on computer and video games. But in the industry that was once dominated by male players, female gamers are the fastest growing demographic of video game players. Forty-seven percent of all players are women, and women over 18 years of age are one of the industry’s fastest growing demographics.
“When developing gpin, we asked ourselves how do people take in their content? We are a visual species and looking at the popularity of a site like Pinterest, which is by and large dominated by women, we saw that there was opening to bring that to gamers,” explained Kyle Barber, Lead Developer for gpin. ” We took this into consideration when building gpin.com and we believe this model will dominate the design landscape in the future, as well as appeal to men as much as it does to women.?
Users can join gpin using their Facebook or Google accounts and begin using the service immediately. Pinning a post is easy using the Add Pin button on the top right or the custom designed bookmarklet that offers one-click publishing of anything found across the web. Gpin is in its beta phase and is asking that users submit any and all feedback to the developers so they can expand the reach and usability of their product. MMO Attack sees this as a viable distribution method for releasing gaming related content and has already seen an increase in other gaming sites like xmmorpg, muchmoregaming, mmohut and thinkgeek using the service.
Founded in 2013 by a group of developers, entrepreneurs and social media experts from San Diego, CA, gpin is a social sharing/bookmarking site that specializes in all things gaming, gadgets and geek. The site offers a fun and easy way to share and organize all of the interesting things we all find on the web. Use gpin to share a new story, organize and collect bookmarks, and discuss and comment on other users’ content. Gpin wants you to discover new things and get inspired by people who share your interests.

Flirt Planet is a ground-breaking new social dating videogame where players can learn valuable socializing and ?flirting? skills that will genuinely help when it comes to dating in the real world. The videogame is the first social dating game ever created with an aim to improve real world relationships.
Social networking environments, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, help people become more ?connected? online. But, for many, these countless connections are not meaningful. Flirt Planet is an innovative, gaming solution to the modern day dilemma of countless online connections, but very few real life bonds. The new gaming technology provides social tools, through a dynamic virtual experience, that genuinely help people form fruitful bonds in the real world.
To celebrate the world?s first social dating game, and inspire users and supporters for its Live Test Version, Flirt Planet is launching a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. Perfectly timed with the love-filled holiday when many reflect on their real life relationships, the campaign starts on Valentine?s Day (February 14th) and will run for 45 days. In the crowdfunding, the independent game developer, TrulySocial, will allow Flirt Planet?s backers to collaborate in the development of core game features.
Founder and Creative Director Sebastian Coman, has been passionate about designing videogames since an early age. When Mr. Coman recently realized the need for a social dating videogame, he transformed his life-long passion into a full-time mission to help millions of people acquire social skills for free (in a virtual environment) that they could apply in the formation of real life relationships.
?In a world where virtual interactions are plentiful, but largely meaningless, I wanted to bridge the gap between an amazing, engaging videogame, and real life interactions for dating,? explained Mr. Coman. ?Flirt Planet?s mission is to make social interactions more meaningful by offering social tools in a fun, safe, and dynamic videogame environment.? ?We are thrilled to be introducing the Live Test Version of Flirt Planet and launching our crowdfounding campaign on Valentine?s Day.?
How Does Flirt Planet Work?
Simply log on through Facebook Connect, build your very own avatar, then create and maintain relationships with other player-created Avatars and Artificial Intelligence computer-controlled characters. These interactions can take place in multiple forms — both via text and also through digitally animated body language. In Flirt Planet, with your avatar, you interact with others who you find attractive, and learn how to better flirt and date within the game environment.
In addition, you can introduce compatible friends, take on-line crushes on virtual dates, and practice dating and flirting skills in these scenarios. The skills you acquire in Flirt Planet serve as your foundations for building meaningful relationships in the real world. So Flirt Planet is not only fun and engaging, it also has real value.
Try Out Your Flirt Planet Skills For Real
Playing Flirt Planet is good practice for the company?s soon-to-be-completed “Dating Service” (18+), where users will be able to communicate freely via Flirt Mail with their connections once a connection request has been accepted.
This dating service is utterly unique, and highly effective, as there?s real science behind the match-making. A variety of compatibility metrics is offered to the users, challenging the services offered by rivals Match.com, OKCupid and eHarmony. While you’re playing Flirt Planet, a profile of you is created based on your interactions. With this, the team provides you with easier or harder characters to interact with. When it comes time for real dating, highly targeted matches are made, based on the user’s preferences and game playing style. Flirt Planet players can also search for matches by choosing their own criteria.
The very best part, it is safe to play. Players may use their avatars and communicate anonymously (through their favorite devices), and only give out their direct contact details when they feel comfortable using their real identity. Users play with a screen name, and have the option of only using their avatar pic in the dating area. Users may send and receive Flirt Mail (dating area communications) through SMS and email, without disclosing personal contact details to their Flirt Planet connections.
Flirt Planet is well controlled for appropriate playing and dating activities. The game is open to players 13+. However, 13-17 year olds may ONLY play the “core game.? Players 18+ may play the game and also have access to the dating area. Teens have no way of interacting with adults and vice versa. In the Entourage/Players in Your Neighborhood you have no way of communicating with one another, nor do you display personal details. In the Dating Service you get to communicate with one another only once consent is established between the two users.
If you wish to learn more about Flirt Planet?s social dating videogame, the company?s crowdfunding campaign, request images, or speak to the developers please contact Samantha Hyde at Press(at)FlirtPlanet3D(dot)com.
About Flirt Planet
Flirt Plant is the world?s first social dating videogame. The innovation bridges two industries — online dating and videogames — and provides valuable social skills for players so they can become better at forming meaningful relationships in the real world. The game is live now on Facebook and will soon be available on the iPhone, iPad, and Android. The company is based in Gibraltar and has a nineteen-person strong development team in Downers Grove, IL, headed by Creative Director Sebastian Coman and videogame veteran Brian Colin.
