SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not every day that an actor tells you to raise your baby dragon and train it to obliterate your enemies, until now. Wil Wheaton (Tabletop, The Big Bang Theory, The Wil Wheaton Project) has joined an alliance with Kabam, the leader in the western world for free-to-play games for traditional players, for an in-game campaign that engages millions of players on an exclusive quest in the world of Atlantis.
The global campaign runs from April 18 to 28 and features weekly Tweets and personal video messages from Wheaton also known as "Advisor Wheaton" on @WilW, YouTube and Tumblr, and Kabam's YouTube and Kabam's Twitter @DoAMobile.
"Ever since I first played Civilization way back on my Mac II, I've loved strategy games and Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon is awesome. I've always been direct and honest with people who read my blog and follow me on social networks, and I can honestly say that I think people will really like this game," said Wheaton. "This quest I worked with Kabam to put together is really cool, too, and a great way for new players to discover some of the fun things Dragons of Atlantis has to offer. For those who are trying it for the first time, and for those who are already veteran Lords or Ladies of Atlantis, we have some super cool in-game prizes for everyone who plays with Advisor Wheaton. Did I mention you get to raise a dragon and train it to rain down fiery death on your sworn enemies? Because you do, and it's awesome!"
Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon is available for free on the App Store and Google Play. For full details on the "Advisor Wheaton" in-game event, visit the "Events and Contests" page on the game's forum at http://community.kabam.com and follow @DoAMobile on Twitter for on-going updates.
