Zeus Beta Test Closed After Impressions Games is Flooded with Over 10,000 Applications in One Week Players Turn Out in Droves To Test Newest City Building Series Game

Impressions Games (http://www.impressionsgames.com) today announced that the second round of applications for their upcoming beta test for Zeus: Master of Olympus has closed after only a few days, with over 10,000 applications received for the 350 spots in the test. Those selected to be in the beta test will be informed via email as they are selected, and the first batch of the prized beta CDs will be mailed on August 24.

"The tremendous response to our call for beta testers shows the wide appeal that our city building games have," said Alex X. Rodberg, product manager for Zeus. "We've been inundated with applications by people of all ages and all walks of life, and we're excited to get those lucky few hundred involved in the final stages of development."

Contributing beta testers will receive not only pre-release builds of the game for testing and evaluation, but also boxed copies when the game is finished, and be listed in the credits in the manual.

Zeus: Master of Olympus is the sixth game in Impressions' award-winning City Building Series. Zeus, set in a mythological ancient Greece, serves up a world filled with the likes of Hercules, Athena, Ares, Medusa, the Minotaur, and many others. Players build and rule Greek city-states while summoning heroes and gods to protect their land from monsters and other Greek cities. Easy to learn, and quick to get in and out of, Zeus promises to be the most fun city building game yet. More information about Zeus can be found at http://zeus.impressionsgames.com/
