Sylien Games to offer Tradewars Rising games on popular social gaming site BattleClinic.com

Dec 15th 2009– BattleClinic and Sylien Games have teamed together to offer gamers the opportunity to play Tradewars? Rising, a remake of the original Tradewars2002 game. The Tradewars? Rising minisite on BattleClinic allows players to join in to Tradewars Rising games specifically tailored for BattleClinic visitors as well as a leaderboard and a starship killboard, as well as view forum posts, announcements, and news.

As the creators of the browser-based space strategy game Tradewars? Rising ( www.tradewarsrising.com), and owners of the online strategy board game community at www.igGameCenter.com, the people at Sylien truly understand the dynamics of a thriving gamer community, and what makes them tick. The people at BattleClinic have also proved themselves a great asset and gatherers in the sci-fi strategy massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) realm through their collaboration with CCP (for the EVE-Online game) and the makers of great titles such as Star Trek Online, City of Heroes, Jumpgate Evolution and more. Together, they have shown how one can build a great fan site.

But that is just the start of the relationship. There are plans to allow fans on BattleClinic to create videos, player guides, tools and further resources that would be useful and exciting to any Tradewars? Rising player as the fan-base grows.

“I think BattleClinic is the best example of a web site that truly caters to the modern player. They think in communities and are trying to get the players involved in the creative process of the games they carry as much as possible, which is a mentality Sylien Games shares and has been using since its birth,” says Sylvain Rochon, CEO of Sylien Games.“Working together, we can create a tremendous example on BattleClinic of what ANY fan can do on their own site using our affiliate tools to have their own Tradewars? Rising games on their web sites, and perhaps even make a bit of money.“

Players wishing to have fun with Tradewars? Rising can play for free forever, however after an initial 45 day trial membership, players are invited to upgrade their membership in order to retain all perks cumulated so far through gameplay and to gain further benefits.

“We’re truly excited to partner with Sylien Games and give our members another reason to enjoy BattleClinic. It spotlights how game developers and publishers can leverage the reach and marketing power of top-tier fansites. It’s a new way of marketing that has clear advantages. We couldn’t think of a better partner that Sylien Games; look for even more collaboration in the future!”
