FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nocturion's Indiegogo Campaign:  http://igg.me/p/718835/x/6745359

Sunday, August 31, 2014 – Athens, Greece – Celebrations are taking place in both Athens, Greece, and Halifax, Canada, as Nocturion reached and surpassed it's crowdfunding goal of 10,000 USD with 8 days still left in the campaign.

“We've said it a million times, we have the best game community ever!” said Konstantinos Manos, Nocturion's Lead Game Designer and Developer. “Thank you to everyone who contributed to our campaign, who shared it with their friends, made comments... to everyone who helped make Nocturion happen!”

Nocturion, a massive, multiplayer, online strategy game, where players become heroes and build empires in a medieval world, received contributions of $1 to $800 from 221 funders during the first 28 days of its 35 day campaign.

“Thanks to Indiegogo's flexible funding option, we've already started putting the contributions to work and will be ready to go live by the end of September,” said Manos.

Nocturion's development team is currently in Athens, but will move to Halifax to build their game development studio in the fall.

“Exciting things are happening,” said Manos. “We've had an overwhelming show of support from people across Nova Scotia, some great people have reached out to us, and we are already starting to build our network.”

In Nocturion, player success is determined by the ability to plan and execute tactical strategies and by their attention to detail.

Nocturion's lore spans hundreds of years with original geography, history, noble houses and politics, warring factions and influences, supernatural enemies, dragons, and more. Players start as mayors of their own small village, establish resource production, and create their first army. With that they can defend their village and raid dungeons for minerals and hidden treasures. In order for players to unlock the mysteries behind Astral Travel and defend their villages from outer planar demons, they will need to forge alliances with other players and combine their forces and their strategies.
