the gaming arm of Asian Media Development Group is shutting down its service in thirty (30) days. This is the announcement that you will see if you visit their official website at iam-interactive.com.
Thus, all Lineage II and Exteel players are advised to use all their remaining iCOINs immediately. Another sad day in the online gaming industry, not just locally in the Philippines but in the Asean region.
iAM Interactive was known as iPlayAsia when AsianMedia (AMDG) entered the Philippine Online Gaming Industry ("P.O.G.I."). Their first offering was ArenaNet’s Guild Wars, selling game boxes to Filipino gamers locally. Later, AsianMedia launched Lineage II for South-East Asian gamers. It was followed by Exteel and then GoGo Racer, both serving Asean gamers in the region.
Thanks to AsianMedia for the games and for the opportunities they offered to everyone - to the gamers to the employees of the company.
