Austin, TX — FoxySoft ( proudly announced this morning that after nearly two years in development the first Public Beta version of “Venus Rising” will be opened to a limited number of public users for trial testing. Venus Rising is the first of it’s kind Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) offering a robust story line with quests like other games involving battle, problem solving, and developing skills — however Venus Rising uniquely offers quests that require a different kind of “Swordplay” as player characters and non-player characters (NPC’s) also interact sexually to gain new skills and moves in the bedroom in addition to those on the battlefield. Immersive reality truly creates a virtual life for characters who can own land, build wealth and live an alternative life as an ancient Roman.

Venus Rising insures scalable, extensive stability and support by building upon a non-proprietary gaming platform; the same platform selected by Zenimax Online for “Elder Scrolls Online”, as well as Electronic Arts’ BioWare division for their wildly popular “Star Wars: The Old Republic”. Similarly, Venus Rising is free to play; with some quests and features unlocked through a small monthly subscription fee of $10.00 USD.

“Developing Venus Rising has become a labor of love”, says Alex Allen, CEO of FoxySoft. “It’s truly amazing to see what started as a simple idea grow into a fully functional virtual world that is as true in it’s nature as possible to Roman times. As a gamer myself, it was important to me that this game appeal to both male and female gamers of all sexual orientations.”

The first Public Beta test for Venus Rising is free and now open to the first 500 approved applicants who are 18+ years of age. To sign up, interested users should follow the directions provided here to request a Beta Key and game client download instructions.

“Sexual activities are very much a part of the player’s character development; you aren’t simply running around having all the sex you want — just like you can’t run around killing everything all the time,” Allen explains. “Players progress through levels of expertise to eventually have 16 sexual positions during an encounter. Players will be able to invite other players into their personal homes or into a game-provided room to engage in sexual activities. Or, players can visit any one of the many brothels to learn and gain prowess from an automated character.”

Public interest in Venus Rising is significant which is evidenced by the more than 24,000 likes on its Facebook page ( FoxySoft intends to launch Venus Rising for general consumer use later this year after some further stress and functionality testing in the Public Beta. Like other MMORPG games, once launched, FoxySoft will continue to add new features, lands and quests to the ever- growing online community.
