A game about a secret war between toys? Sounds like what Toy Story 2 should have been about. MicroVolts enters it's second closed beta today and is a game I'm actually going to check out because it sounds fun. Plus with a development house named Rock Hippo, how could it be anything but cool?


MICROVOLTS SECOND CLOSED BETA STARTS TODAY, JANUARY 28TH

Players Can Celebrate With A Special "Free-For-All" Event Starting
February 5th

Markham, Canada - January 28, 2011 - Rock Hippo Productions Ltd today
launched the second closed beta for its cartoon-style third person
action shooter, MicroVolts. This second phase of testing will continue
for approximately two weeks in preparation for the official release
day. In addition, the company has released all-new screen shots of
the game and is holding a special "Free-for-All" tournament which will
kick off Saturday, February 5th. Winning players will be awarded their
choice of any weapon they want to use with the launch of the Open
Beta! Players who visit the website at http://www.MicroVolts.com/
will be able to learn more about the game and the events as well as
register for a beta key.

MicroVolts features fast paced, third person shooter action and pits
players against each other in a secret battle that has been waged and
going unnoticed right in our own backyard for years. No one knows for
sure when or where the first toy declared war but rumor has it that
the uprising began with four original limited edition figures, code
named MicroVolts. Battle lines were drawn when Naomi, Knox, Pandora,
and C.H.I.P.--the prototypes a--were soon joined by an endless number
of modified versions. Now, toy figures around the world are engaged in
an all-out war for valuable battery resources and supremacy of the
Micro World. All we can do now is stay out of their way and wait for
a champion to be declared!

With a ton of weapons, inventive character designs, and a huge list of
customization features, MicroVolts is destined to invigorate and
re-energize the Free2play space. Intuitive controls and a third person
view make the game easy to play and fun for both newcomers and
veterans of shooter games.
Game modes include Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Item Match, Capture
the Battery, and many more featuring various maps designed by toy
concept. For more information about MicroVolts, and to obtain a Closed
