Perpetuum is a video game by Avatar Creations Ltd. It is a player-driven persistent-world MMORPG set in a science fiction ground setting. Players pilot customisable robots on various islands connected by several teleports. These islands are either alpha or beta/gamma, meaning players can freely engage each other. Players of Perpetuum are able to participate in a number of in-game professions and activities, including mining, logistics, missions, manufacturing, trading, artifact hunting and combat. The range of activities available to the player is facilitated by a character advancement system based upon extension points accumulation in real time, even while not logged into the game. Perpetuum was first released worldwide via a digital distribution scheme on 25 Nov 2010, following a period of closed and open beta testing. The first major upgrade was the version of Perpetuum dubbed Terra Incognita, which was released on 4 May 2011.
