Between now and May 12th, Atlus will be tossing “enchanting” golden tickets to 2,000 lucky forum members of the official Atuls Online message board. These just aren’t pretty little pieces of text and graphic design. No sir. They’re beta invites for the upcoming steampunk MMORPG, “Neo Steam.” If you’re like me, this was your train of thought: “steampunk, golden ticket, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, want now.”
If you don’t get a golden ticket, and claimed top prize in one of the company’s past contests, the official announcement says “rest assured you are also in Golden Ticket Beta!”
As of writing, I have not received my own golden ticket for the steampunk MMORPG. With each passing day my dreams of playing one of the ill-fated teenagers from Roald Dahl’s story inside of a steampunk universe significantly deteriorate. Of course, that could change if a reader or even Atlus wants to slip a golden piece of virtual paper into my virtual inbox.
