Starship Titanic Community Press Release
Douglas Adams launches Starship Titanic Community on the Web
Best-selling author Douglas Adams has officially cut the ribbon on the online Starship Titanic Community (www.starshiptitanic.com).
The Digital Village, Mr. Adams's media company, with tools and services
from CyberSites, Inc., the Starship Titanic Community is an online
society for fans of his work, based on the world first seen in the
popular CD-ROM game Starship Titanic, from Simon & Schuster Interactive
and The Digital Village.
"I've written books, created for television, made CD-ROMs; I didn't want
to simply re-create these experiences on the internet. The web is a new
medium, demanding an entirely new kind of fiction, and that's what we've
developed for the online Starship Titanic Community."
Members of the Starship Titanic Community enter the world of Starship
Titanic and receive new personas, avatars, and homes. They can chat, send
instant 'telegrams' to each other, create web pages, participate in
bulletin boards, contests and role-playing, all within a themed Starship
This world is created using the ground-breaking tools and services of
community provider CyberSites. "People are coming online to communicate,"
says CyberSites CEO Elliot Klein, "and CyberSites provides the tools to
enable them to commune online. Creators of great content and owners of
great properties use our community infrastructure to breathe life into
the online experiences they create, to promote their brands to a
world-wide audience, to generate new revenue and to really take advantage
of the internet as a communications medium."
