Yes this was confirmed late yesterday by Kieron somewhere else in the forums.

So I'm guessing it is some kind of Cola variant? Do you know if this will only be produced while the fanfest is or can I taste it when I get back to Iceland for Christmas vacation?

Edit: When I start thinking about it the more and more sense it makes that they just make "jólaöl" and sell it as quafe.

Probably that not only do you screw over your erstwhile friends and colleagues on your desparate climb up the economic ladder but you attempt to engage in as much smacktalk as possible while doing it.

Or am I being too cynical? Razz

For those interested this has been done before... it is possible to buy Duff beer (as seen on the Simpsons cartoon).

The idea is hardly new... but very workable.

It means EVERYTHING, including culture, information, and even pretend game beverages will be commodified (turned into a commodity) and be bought and sold in some kind of market situation.

not really...
The creators of simpsons were *sued* over the use of Duff beer in it's TV show. (Simpsons eventually got the right to continue to use it)

Duff beer existed before the show was made. So the idea is a new one.

Even if this was correct, in my opinion it don't really count, Simpsons is a very popular TV show worldwide. Compared to EVE (as fine a game as it is) is actually quite 'small-time', most gamers have not even heard of it, and probably even some MMO gamers have not. let alone people that dont even play video games, which is alot of people btw Razz

2000-2030 tonight, the Quafe Queen is going to be crowned and Quafe launched. Not sure how large the release is going to be, I'll have more information later on and update tomorrow.

Pics! Movies! Webcams, whatever, please!

(That goes for the entire fanfest and not just this of course!)
