The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences has recently awarded the title of

a massive RPG world with online capabilities and potentially endless quests.

advancement of the interactive arts. As quoted from their website, their mission goals are as follows:



  • Promote and advance common interests in the worldwide interactive community.
