How It Works
BrowserQuests™ itself is an online RPG developed and delivered in the spirit of traditional tabletop, pencil-and-paper, gamemaster (GM) led quests and encounters (but the tabletop, pencils and paper are all replaced with an online interface and the GM is virtual, controlled entirely through programming code). Players register with the site, create a hero for themselves, eventually recruit up to eight other non-player heroes to form an adventuring party and explore the fantasy world of Sisalus in pursuit of fame, glory and adventure!
Players interact with the virtual GM as if they're having a one-on-one conversation: The GM explains what is happening at the moment and the player responds via the game's visual interface (a collection of buttons and dropdown menus that allows the player to act in a very specific way). With each interaction between the GM and player, a random encounter sponsor ad is displayed, and because these interactions are typically 30 seconds to perhaps a minute or two apart, the ads are delivered quite frequently. Hence, during a typical 30 minute online session, the player will likely see several dozen of these ads!
With each ad rotation, the marketer's name is prominently displayed as a hyperlink; when clicked by the player, the marketer's website is then launched within a separate browser so the player can explore the associated product or service. Hence, players can easily learn more about the marketer through the game's encounter sponsor ad mechanism.
Page Sponsor Ads
In addition to the smaller, more intimidate encounter sponsor ads, marketers also receive full, more traditional page-based banner ads. Measuring 835 x 100 pixels in size, these ads appear at the bottom of nearly every page throughout the BrowserQuests™ website (rather than just on the player page where the encounter sponsor ads are displayed) and are intended to promote the marketer's product or services throughout the website.
Full, page-based banner ads and player encounter-based sponsor ads can be purchased using the following "packages":
