I did a news search on "Rocktropia" with Google and came up with 3!! hits.

Shouldn't a new game release render more?

Is it beacuse it's just a "beta" as many says here and not the real release?

ND and MA should announce the release big, or?

The first real planet in the fantastic Universe of Entropia where we use RCE and the fantastic CE2 engine!

I would say so Nirfu.

The entire planet still isn't in use.

So I'd say after 3-4months, we'll have 75%-100% of the land in use, more mobs, items and what not. Which will then call on a full scale advertising campaign (hopefully) and then more hits on Google. :)

In my opinion this is quite impressive without any larger campaign going on and 1 day only.

I can't agree with you. All of these sites all show the press quote from MA. Shouldn't ND Studios be saying stuff to the press. Where is the owner/developer of Rocktropia in this?

I'll post the quote bellow

The Quote:

GOTEBORG, Sweden, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- MindArk PE AB, developer of the Entropia Platform and publisher of Entropia Universe, announced today the launch of the first independently developed virtual planet in Entropia Universe. "Rocktropia" is a themed adventure world for music fans, developed by NEVERDIE Studios of Los Angeles using the Entropia Platform.

Jan Welter Timkrans, founder and CEO of MindArk comments, "The Entropia Platform is the result of several years' work that has enhanced MindArk's business model, organization and technology. Its flexibility supports differentiated ranges of use from MMOG environments to social virtual worlds and three dimensional simulation environments, providing them with full access to a real money economic system, high quality graphics and online entertainment features. We are delighted to welcome Rocktropia to the virtual universe and look forward to a range of other planets coming online soon. It's a great beginning, but it's just the beginning."

David Simmonds, Director of Business Development at MindArk continues, "Our solution offers full avatar portability between independently developed virtual environments. This allows users to easily transfer their avatars, as well as their digital assets, between separate vendors. A single Entropia Universe account provides access without the need for multiple login accounts, and provides the highest level of security for users and service providers alike."

Entropia Universe boasts a high ARPU (average revenue per user) and points the way to a profitable turn key solution for entry into the 3D Internet via revenue share, for organizations which have been impacted by the shifting media landscape. Planet Calypso, the first planet in Entropia Universe, has been online since 2003, became profitable in 2004 and had an economic turnover of 422M USD in 2009. Entropia Universe is a virtual universe for entertainment, social interaction and e-commerce. It is available for free without subscription fees.

Jessus, they should have waited a year or so, until it maybe could actually be shown to public.

I can only assume this is a 'soft launch'. Not only is there no press really to speak of but I am quite surprised I didnt get any email or anything from rocktropia.com or lemmysarm.com which I have signed up for 18 months ago or whenever it was first announced.

I didn't get an email either. Seems like the people that signed up early for Next Island and Rocktropia got purged or something? Haven't got anything for a long time. :(
