Topic: Free game offered to first-time MMRPG players.
Have you heard of online games like Everquest, Asheron’s Call or Dark Ages of Camelot and been curious to try one? The University of Michigan is running the first-ever comprehensive study of massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMRPG’s), and we will give free copies of the new game “Asheron’s Call 2” to people willing to play.
400 of the first 1,000 people who fill out the study’s survey will get a free game sent to them in the mail.
Who we’re looking for: We are most interested in people who have never played an MMRPG, or who have played very little, but everyone is welcome. We are also very interested to get both men and women to participate in the study. Your computer must be able to run the game, and so must be at least 733 MhZ, with a 2 GB hard drive, sound card and a 32MB 3D video card.
What do you have to do? You have to be willing to fill out one survey, play the game at least twice a week for one month, and then fill out a second survey at the end. That’s it. We’ll mail you the game, and the cost of the first month of play is included with the copy.
Spread the word: Do you know someone who hasn’t played one of these games before, but might be interested in trying one out for free? Please send them this information!
