DURHAM, N.C. - November 8 2007 - The Escapist, the cutting edge online interactive entertainment publication and home to the wildly popular Zero Punctuation serial animation feature, is excited to have welcomed one million unique monthly visitors during October, setting a record for the magazine.
"This is a proud moment for The Escapist," said Julianne Greer, Editor-in-Chief of The Escapist Magazine. "We are really excited to reach such an important milestone in just two years. It is indicative of the hard work and passion of the team to continuously bring the progressive editorial and video content that we are known for."
The Escapist is a leader in providing breaking news updates, riveting editorials and reviews from the industry's most accredited writers and laughter-inducing video content. "The Escapist is a release valve for creativity and critique. Its championing of serious writing and reading about games and game culture serve a community that has had little of either," said John Tynes, freelance writer for The Escapist and producer of Pirates of the Burning Seas.
"It shouldn't come as any surprise that The Escapist is hitting the one million visitors per month mark so soon, frankly. It's a must-read publication unlike any other in the category," said Hal Halpin, president of the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA). "I don't have as much time as I would like to read through all of the media that cover the IE business, but The Escapist is on my short-list; it's insightful, intelligently-written and topical. Congratulations! And keep up the great work."
