Ridgewood, NJ (PRWEB) August 8, 2004
Mnemosyne LLC. opens its doors for business! Founded by two former Cyber Warrior, Inc. developers, partners Jeff Grubb and Julia Howe hope to revive the dream that is Rubies of Eventide mmorpg. Mr. Grubb describes his impetus for opening the Phoenix server, ÂThe hardcores were pinging our game servers ever since Cyber Warrior closed. Daily, people were looking for their game to come home toÂ we had to do something!Â
MnemosyneÂs philosophy comes as good news for former players as well as new recruits. The modest company hopes to keep Rubies free to play with fund-raising drives for major purchases. Run like a virtual village, Rubies of Eventide relies on player donations, volunteerism, and the creative contributions of its conscious community. "Essentially, this model helps create a more responsible gaming environment where players can take pride in the community they belong to,Â comments Julia Howe, "we listened to what our customer base was asking us to provide and discovered that it was much more cost-effective to tap into the skills of our players than to do everything in-house. This means we can create more content value for less Â and make available an excellent venue for our players to showcase their talents to the gaming community.Â
About Rubies of Eventide:
Rubies of Eventide is a promising example of change in the MMORPG industry.
