Award-Winning MMORPG "Pirates of the Burning Sea" UNVEILS NEW WEBSITE!

(Seattle, WA) January 11, 2007 - Flying Lab Software unveiled a website redesign (www.burningsea.com!) for their award-winning MMORPG Pirates of the Burning Sea, a massively multiplayer online game of swashbuckling adventure on land and sea, set in the Caribbean during the 1720s.

In addition to the brand-new look, the updated Pirates of the Burning Sea website introduced twelve never-before-seen screenshots of breathtaking environments from the game world. The bold site design, launched in tandem with a new Developer Log from Flying Lab Software CEO, Russell Williams, signals the fast approaching June 2007 release date for Pirates of the Burning Sea.

In his Developer Log, Williams writes, "Here at Flying Lab, we're now firmly in the fun part. Our beta releases come out about every 2-3 weeks, and each release dramatically improves the game. This month is a big one for us, as we start rolling in the new avatars into the game, and the Open Sea is about to get a dramatic facelift in both the visuals and in the gameplay. Ship skills are being totally redone, the avatar combat is being finalized, we're adding on yet more richness in our sounds (crew sounds, anybody?) the UI is being (finally!) redone for real, and the art department is kicking ass and taking names. We can't wait till you guys start seeing the new environments, especially the new jungle beach!"

You are invited to check out the new look and see our amazing jungle beach screenshots by visiting our site at www.burningsea.com!

Pirates of the Burning Sea Upgrades Avatars

You've all heard Eekabeep rant and rave about "Pirates of the Burning Sea" (releasing in June) for ages, but I really have to share this! "Pirates of the Burning" Sea is undergoing dramatic changes to its look, from the environments, lighting, ships, animation and overall vision. The latest change has been an update to the people of the in-game Caribbean, giving them a much better fashion sense, as well as shapes instead of tubes for their bodies. Aw yeah.

Check out the new vs. the old avatars.

And now.. the man that Eekabeep will marry some day....
