EVERETT, Wash.--February 7, 2013-- GameSamba announced today that they will be introducing a host of new features and content as part of an overall rebranding strategy for the casual free to play MMO Remnant Knights. The company is also partnering with leading cloud gaming service Kalydo so players can easily jump in and go. In response to the game's enthusiastic player base of teens and casual players, GameSamba is emphasizing the quirky and social elements of the game, along with the school rivalry-based competitions. A revamped rewards program and VIP subscriptions will be introduced, and a new set of Expedition Quests gives players the opportunity to delve deeper into Remnant Knights lore.

"The uniquely cute and colorful world of Remnant Knights resonates well with teens. We've worked hard to create a friendly environment with tons of fun stuff to do, and we want it to be easily accessible for everyone," said Dr. Scott Wong, president and co-founder of GameSamba. "Kalydo provides a great solution that gets people playing and connecting with their friends instantly."

"We are excited about the launch of Remnant Knights on Kalydo. Gamers can now play this game instantly from the desktop and browser without having to download and install a big client. Cloud gaming is the future and Kalydo is shaping it together with GameSamba," said Doki Tops, CEO of Kalydo.

Brand new Expedition Quests unlock the secrets of Kasmari, as players embark on a journey to discover their true past, encounter noteworthy individuals, overcome obstacles, and earn their knighthood. The 65+ quests add variety to gameplay and offer exciting new rewards.  

Players who log into the game and check in with the Daily Rewards App will receive a special free premium item each day from the Samba Shop, with different category of item represented daily, such as Mounts Mondays and Pet Thursdays. As they advance through the game, players will also now receive Progression Perks at certain level milestones. These free premium items serve as a bonus reward for achieving the level, and provide some added help for the next challenge.

The new VIP Subscription program offers a greater value and convenience for dedicated players who frequently purchase premium items. Subscribers may choose from 1, 3 or 6 month plans starting at only $4.99 per month, and will receive an exclusive VIP Title and stat-boosting Frenzy Potion, a collection of consumable items, one free monthly event item and 400 free Sambas per month to buy their preferred shop items.
