Manchester, UK (PRWEB) March 28, 2008 –-
Kooc Media Ltd. (http://www.kooc.co.uk) has created an online virtual world that currently has more than 23,000 inhabitants although this virtual world, Roliana.com, is only nine months old. Since Roliana.com launched, the site has reached 1.5 million forum posts and 10 million page views monthly.
The Kingdom of Roliana is described as a large kingdom of extraordinary beauty. With its current population of 23,000 (and growing daily), Roliana features a busy shopping district. Roliana’s shops range from those catering to women’s elegant clothing and men’s fashionable wear to salons focusing on hairstyles and accessories.
At Roliana.com, members earn currency, which they can spend on clothes and accessories to dress up their avatars. Users earn their currency by posting in the forums and playing online games. They can also purchase Roliana currency with Paypal, by post, or by mobile.
A feature of Roliana that attracts the strong interest that made it possible for the site to grow as quickly as it has, is the ability it offers for a member to have a customisable avatar. With Roliana’s real life staff of artists, there is a constant stream of new sets of clothing appearing in the shops. With the hundreds of thousands of different combinations there are no two avatars alike.
Echoing the top designers in non-virtual reality, the Roliana designers present items that are valuable because of their uniqueness. Each month one-off items appear in the shops, which users can purchase with real-world currency for their avatars. Because these are one-off items, they increase their in-game value over time.
At Roliana, the busiest activities take place in the forums. At the rate of 1.5 million messages posted within the first 9 months, Roliana is poised to become one of the largest forums on the Internet.
Currently Roliana's forums are ranked 1054th on Big-Boards.com, a site that ranks only those forums that have more than half a million posts. Roliana’s forums have climbed 150 places this month alone, making them the fastest growing site listed.
