Seven Lights, a new online games company, was introduced today to bring together the best elements of strategy, role-playing, customization and collectibility. Seven Lights will use virtual economies/microtransactions as its primary business model. Game Daily speak with CEO and co-founder Tim Harris.
Today Tim Harris, Mike McCarthy and Dave Shuck introduced Seven Lights, a new Chicago-based developer and publisher of online entertainment. The three founders describe the online experience they will provide as one that "unites strategic gameplay with RPG character development, collectibility, customization, and virtual economies."
Seven Lights will be avoiding the retail channel by publishing its content online, starting on the PC and then gradually moving to consoles, handhelds, and even mobile phones. The first project, called The Continuum, will be a browser-based (using flash) game set for release in early 2007.
