IRC is getting an UPGRADE! March 14th, 2010
For over 25+ years, IRC has been what we know it to be today. A great medium to chat with friends, support online communities, and do business. But when you look back upon those decades, you see other text mediums have innovated and evolved, whereas IRC has remained the same.

EnterTheGame has been one of the IRC Networks to help bring IRC to you over 11+ of those 25 years. We have added many new features over that time, but we have always been limited in what we could offer. In the end, IRC was still IRC.

We have been on the forefront of seeing other text technologies over these decades expand, and advance. We`ve seen many people leave IRC for newer technologies, and we`ve seen many new people not giving IRC a chance because it`s not as *cool* or *new* as other tech. Really, it`s left many of us IRCers wondering if IRC was to be relegated to the history books and was just going to keep shedding users to things like MSN, YIM, X-Fire, etc.

Well we are pleased to help announce that all of that is about to change. The future of IRC is going to be bright and full of possibilities once more with the introduction of ETGiRC! It`s not just another chat client, some small upgrade/change, or some feature added to IRC. It is a complete shift in IRC, in what we see, in how we use it, in what it offers us, and in how we interact and experience it.

ETGiRC is NOT another IRC Client!


Among it`s many features, the most awaited one is the introduction of Customized Chat Rooms. In much the same way Companies, Organizations, and Clans have customized web pages, they will now be able to customize the look and feel of their chat rooms now too! No longer will every chat channel look the same! This will provide the users of each chat room/channel with a customized and unique experience.

Here is our new support channel!


Add to this, built-in games with an open development platform, and the ability to find and play external FPS games with the built-in Game Query System, you have something that is unlike any other chat software.

Be sure to check it out! A public beta starts soon, where a limited number of beta-keys will be released! http://www.etgirc.com/
