Hey everyone,

The "Free Realms" beta site is officially live. Check it out:

Free Realms (http://www.freerealms.com/)

I'm a senior artist on the game, and I'm super proud of the title, more so than just about anything I've ever worked on. I hope you guys and gals enjoy playing it as much as I've enjoyed helping animating it.

Cool beans, Floyd!

Are there supposed to be videos on the site? Cause there's a lot of space and I don't see any videos. Would be cool to see the stuff in action!

hey man it looks real nice! Congrats on working in such a title. Hopefully you got 0'00001% royalties and it turns out to gain a fourth of what WoW does in 1 month. Then you'll be rich.

I was taking a look at it this morning while my 13 yr old daughter peered over my shoulder. Got to an image the pet dog and my daughter squealed, "How Cute!" (yes she literally squealed! - and made me jump out of my chair).

I signed up for the Beta. I think my kids will love this. Good job Floyd.

Yeah, doesn't work for me. I only see a free, blue space. So it's either because of Flash Player 10 or because Adblock blocks it. Darn!

What browser/operating system are you using? I'll let our web guys know about it.

I like all the added mini games, seems like there's a lot to do. Definetly should appeal to a wide audience.

Congrats on the beta, Floyd! We got the sign up info in the Seattle studio last week and I hope to have time to check it out. Things are getting crunchy leading up to Town Hall, so it may have to wait til after that. Looking forward to it, though.

Hey Floyd, are they accepting people into the Beta yet?
I signed up weeks ago and never heard anything. :shrug:

You should have gotten a "Thanks for signing up" email, telling you that people will be getting into beta over the next few months.

OK. I got that, but I wasn't expecting to have to wait several months to try it out.

Call me "Mr. Impatient" with a side of "short attention span". :D

Just a quick note to let you know that Free Realms went into internal closed beta yesterday (http://kotaku.com/5160852/free-realms-enters-closed-beta) .
