It's time to wipe the tears from your eyes and say a meaningful "farewell" to your character in HGWars, because he's going away! Or she is, as the case may be.
I will be wiping all characters and battle records in the very near future, probably within the next hour and a half. Then the new round will begin and will last at least until this time on April 30, 2009. It may last longer or it may not, depending on how things are going.
The game is not entirely finished, but I think anyone who has played it can agree that I've made significant strides in that direction (with your help). Now it's time for open beta and I plan to be offering a prize to users that will consist of at least a $20 Amazon.com gift certificate. I'd like to be able to offer more if I can, but we'll just have to see. If the amount I can offer increases and/or the date the contest concludes changes, it will be announced in advance for users (and not just here on my blog).
I'll be spending most of the next few hours getting PR stuff ready to go--like possibly a small marquee ad for the site--and hopefully adding a feature so that users can wipe their own account at will to start fresh (if desired). I hope to make a big push for the game now that we're ready for open beta and I hope that you'll all help by referring friends who you think may find it interesting.
Remember that if you refer users, you should add your user ID to the end of the URL so that you can receive HG Points for referring them (even if it's only a small amount). Convince friends to sign up for the site through your referral link, as well (found from your main HG Points page). This will ensure that you get the most points possible, points that you can use for prize drawings and for in-game advancements.
I'll see you in HGWars soon... as new characters, with a fresh start and with honestgamer dominating. Oh, yeah!
