Taking over the world, one piece of media coverage at a time

Empire Avenue is barely a week old and people are already talking about us. Let me give you some insight into what's happening. We've had about 250 people active in our closed beta over the last week - well within the numbers that we wanted to get feedback from. There are a lot more folks chomping at the bit to get into the site, and we'll soon be opening the doors for more beta testers. If you've signed up and haven't received your invite yet, don't worry - we promise we'll let you in!

In the meantime, we've been featured in a few websites and news articles, with lots more to come. For those of you who haven't had a chance to join in the fun of helping us beta test our little baby, we invite you to go see what other people are saying. Check out the Citytv Breakfast Television spot from Calgary, Alberta to get a look at how the site looks and works!

So here's a bit of the media coverage:

Yahoo! Video Games
Breakfast Television, Citytv, Calgary
iNews 880, Edmonton
The Edmontonian

Look out for more coverage in the next couple of weeks; several high-profile websites will be diving into Empire Avenue, and we'll be sure to pass along updated coverage on the site, on Twitter and Facebook. We're having fun rolling this out, and our beta testers have been amazing. Help us take this to the next level and see what disruptive fun we can all have!
