Abandon Interactive Entertainment announced today that its upcoming virtual world, Freaky Creatures, had moved into an open beta. Abandon first announced Freaky Creatures in November 2007 and was originally targeting a public (I believe) beta in Summer 2008. The world combines offline toys and a flash drive to create unique mosters and battle online. Starter packs with two action figures and a 1GB flash drive will be available in March for $19.99.
“We’ve received a tremendous amount of support and buzz for Freaky Creatures, which is very promising,” said Jamie Ottilie, President, and COO of Abandon Interactive Entertainment. “There are a lot of eager players who want to get their hands on this exciting, new MMO game, and we are delighted to give them the first look.”
