San Diego – 03/20/2013 – Arkadia Studios partners with GUNNAR Optiks to create virtual gaming eyewear
Arkadia Studios and GUNNAR Optiks have partnered to bring a real world piece of gaming equipment to life in the virtual world of Planet Arkadia. A 3D version of GUNNAR’s Vayper Onyx will be available to colonists on Planet Arkadia from March 2013.
‘Lucky Arkadians will win both the in-game version and the real life version of these gaming glasses from GUNNAR,’ says Arkadia Studios Community Manager, Cyrus Chen. ‘This is seriously classy eyewear, and I know plenty of players who are going to be excited to see their avatars wearing them – not to mention being able to protect their eyes in real life with the latest gaming tech.’
Arkadia and GUNNAR will be making 18 Vayper Onyx sets available to random active participants with Planet Arkadia’s next update, scheduled for early March.
‘This is the update we and our players have been waiting for,’ says Arkadia Studios CEO David Dobson. ‘There is an enormous amount of content being added which will create a lot of opportunities for players, even those who are new to the game. Our partnership with GUNNAR Optiks comes at the perfect time, and the chance to win these glasses is another great reason to get in and see what this virtual life is all about.’
GUNNARs are high tech computer eyewear, designed to protect, enhance and optimize your vision. According to Nathaniel Pope, International Sales & Marketing Manager, GUNNARS increase contrast, comfort and focus while minimizing eye fatigue and visual stress for anyone who spends long hours viewing digital screens. GUNNAR eyewear is powered by i-AMP lens technology comprised of a proprietary lens material in an advanced geometry tuned for intermediate viewing distance and finished with custom formulated lens filters, tints and coatings. “We are pleased to offer a visual upgrade to the colonists of Planet Arkadia,” says Nathaniel, “that will allow them to stay focused and keep their eyes on the game.”
Anyone interested in trying to win a set of these glasses simply needs to visit www.planetarkadia.com/gunnar, download Planet Arkadia for free, create their avatar and get active in the game!
Colonists achieving “global” loots in hunting, mining and crafting during March, April and May 2013 will earn entries into the random draw.
