Turn-based Strategic MMORPG, ‘Atlantica’ is about to be revealed in July
NDOORS Corporation plans to gather users’ feedback and test stability in July with respect to its piece of work, ‘Atlantica’ which is a MMORPG game that will give worldwide services.
“MMORPG Atlantica was created by Producer Kim, Taegon who wanted a change from the original MMORPG.”
Producer Kim, Taegon who has 15 years of game producing experience have produced ‘Atlantica’ to grow out of original MMORPG. That is why Atlantica has a very unique style: Turn-base method and business management like strategy. We aimed to attract 20 plus male adults and let users to be more accessible to the game. That brought us to a conclusion that hunting games have many limits.
“Turn-base method is the basis of Atlantica’s battle strategy.”
Turn-base method is the basis of Atlantica’s battles. A user takes charge of a troop that is composed of a hero and a number of soldiers to fight with monsters. A user can have 8 soldiers maximum and have to decide how to assault in 30 seconds. It is interesting to see that outcome of a battle is often determined by stationing 9 characters including the hero in a 3x3 box.
As to stationing different kinds of soldiers at the front and back, users should take the attribution of a monster into account. A monster that likes to attack within a short distance usually attacks the soldiers at front line. In that case, users should place the strongest soldiers at the front.
There are many kinds of mercenary corresponding to that fact that they play an important role in the game. They mature along 3 steps: A feeder that brings animals and soldiers who carry weapons back, an inventor who collects machines and weapons, and lastly a princess who invalidates adversary’s magic.
Producer Kim, Taegon explained why they introduced the turn-base method, “The most important elements of a game would be repetitive battles and strategic battle. MMORPG these days are played by speedy actions. It is very crucial that who plays with more complicated mind and which strategy is used. We decided to use turn-base method because we wanted to improve the speed and control. We thought one-on-one fights would be not good.”
“Special feature of online PC games would be PVP and community.”
Atlantica is MMORPG which not only has a typical monster hunt but also has PVP(3 teams on each side) that enables players to talk to other players. It also has online game features such as a party hunting and PK that are different from SRPG’s console games. One of the strong points of online games is that they have communities. Atlantica has a political system that runs a nation. A nation is built by guild confederate. PK can be applied among nations that have declared a war against each other. People can even raise children which is pretty realistic.
Turn-base method is familiar to most users but they are found in console games and are not common in general online PC games. Users in North America and Europe who are very much used to console games can enjoy Atlantica’s PVP and communities because features are not many.
In the meantime, Atlantica will be updated on July 10 in Korea that is called ‘Atlantica 2.0.’ In Atlantica 2.0 will announce to the public regarding the New World, North America and main scenario through gamengame.com
