Representatives from British company GDI (Game Domain International) has announced the start of its AWOMO (A World of My Own) beta test scheme - with 20,000 testers already recruited for the PC game subscription and download service and over 70 games currently available. The AWOMO service was first announced in February by Richard Branson’s Virgin Group as a PC service designed to “replicate the functionality of iTunes” with an interactive 3D community based interface. The service received a boost in June when it announced support from major UK based retailer GAME. The current “low level” beta testing does not feature the 3D interface, themed around an island paradise, with that aspect of the service scheduled to begin testing later this summer. Around 10,000 additional beta tester vacancies are currently available, with users being offered free games for their assistance as well as the chance to win AWOMO subscriptions and introductory offers for the final service. The AWOMO website reveals beta test support from publishers including 2K Games, Atari, Codemasters, Eidos Interactive, Empire Interactive, Koch Media, Merscom, Midas, Oxygen, Telltale Games, THQ, Vivendi Games, Nanogames, Sega, NCsoft and Strategy First. Actual games available during the beta test period include Bone, Championship Manager 2007, City of Heroes/City of Villains, Civilization III, Colin McRae Rally 04, Company of Heroes, F.E.A.R., FlatOut 2, Hitman: Blood Money, Just Cause, Operation: Flashpoint, Serious Sam II, Test Drive Unlimited, Tomb Raider: Legend, Virtua Cop 2, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos, Virtua Fighter 2 and Sam & Max: Season One.
