Keyquest Beta: Now underway!

We have some cool, exclusive KeyQuest news for you tonight! A beta option has opened up for Premium members, though only a few were accepted. We, however, have some cool screenshots to share from inside the game! Many thanks goes to xfzunx for providing the screenies. :) (Click each screenshot for a larger version!)

Keyquest is an online game that you'll be able to play through your browser. In the game, you'll get to use the tokens that have been collected by purchasing the plushies and trading cards that have been available for the past couple of months. If you don't have any, or you can't get to any merchandise, rest assured that TNT has promised to release some special tokens onsite that anyone will be able to obtain. ;)

To begin, when you fire up the game, you'll see a welcome page with various options for chat rooms to enter. Each chat room contains players that you can play games with, so you'll have to partner up with someone before you can play.


Below, you can see what the "General Chat" room looks like. There's not anyone in there now due to the limited number of people participating in the beta, but there will be plenty more when KQ goes live. :)


Next, you and your opponent pick a "house" to start from. Whatever house you pick will determine where you start on the board. No two players can start from the same house.


Once you've made your house decision, you'll be shown a brief overview of the game board, and a wishing of luck from the Keyquest faerie.


Below is just some random game play in which the player received a blue key. You need to collect a certain number of keys before you can head to the end door of the game to finish.


While you're moving around the board, you can pick up power-ups to aid you during game play. This one below, in particular, is a Misdirected Compass. It will let you turn around and move in another way.


Again, another power-up. This one is a Loaded Gummy Dice, and it can let you pick the number of spaces you move.


And this here is the end. Still needs a little work. :P *cough*KeyQuest logo goes here*cough*


As mentioned above, this is the Keyquest Vault. Any keys you earn in-game can be redeemed at the vaults for some sort of prize that we don't know what it is yet. :P


There are also some mini-games that you can play besides the KQ game itself, and of course chatting with the people you're playing with. Right now, the game is still in beta, and it's definitely a work in progress. So, some things may not be identical come release time. Can't wait until it finally becomes public! :D
