Atlantica Online Honored as One
of the Year’s Best MMORPGs

New Offering from NDOORS Gains
Momentum in 2008

NDOORS Interactive, creators of the
strategic turn-based MMORPG, Atlantica Online, is proud to announce that
Atlantica has been recognized as one of the best MMORPGs of 2008. Atlantica
Online is a game that sends players on a journey around the globe, and this year
the title made significant progress in attracting a large and diverse user base
in North America while receiving critical acclaim for its quality,
accessibility, and entertainment value.

The list of honors for Atlantica
recently expanded to include the title of “Best Game” at the Korea Game Awards,
hosted by the Game Industries Association on Dec. 16. Kim Tae Gon, the game’s
head producer, received commendation as an “Excellent Developer” at the KGA for
his work on Atlantica. These awards follow the Golden Plume trophy that
Atlantica took home for “Best Foreign Online Game” at the ChinaJoy Conference in
November 2008.

Despite launching in the fourth
quarter of 2008, Atlantica Online quickly made up for lost time by being
nominated as one of the “Best New Games of 2008” by the editors at the genre
leading website, visited by over 1 million MMO-playing readers every

Atlantica Online’s free-to-play
business model was one of the reasons that popular MMO site Ten Ton Hammer
bestowed the game with the title of “Best Free-to-Play Game of 2008.” Ten Ton
Hammer also cited the fact that Atlantica was “smoother and more fun than
anything I had played in a long time,” in their decision to give the game a
nearly perfect review score of “4.5/5 Hammers.” With such praise as “easily the
best [free-to-play] game I have played and … more fun than many subscription
games I have tried” from Ten Ton Hammer, it is no wonder that the game has found
success among a surprisingly diverse crowd of players.

One of the winners of Atlantica’s
recent “No Atlantian Left Behind” contest was 73-year-old Mary Martinez, a
grandmother from Quitman, Texas. After her grandson, an avid player himself,
introduced Mary to the game, she became hooked on the social connectivity that
Atlantica Online offers her. “I don’t get out and around like I used to, so
playing games where you interact with others is a way for me to have a more
social life,” said Martinez. Mary’s dedication to the game was rewarded when she
became one of the winners of the contest, taking home a new Nintendo Wii.

In 2009 Atlantica Online will
continue to expand the variety of locations that the game’s players can explore
while maintaining the same level of detail and quality that has proven
successful so far. “With the saturation of new titles coming online in the MMO
market each year, it is truly an accomplishment for Atlantica to have gained
steam so quickly,” said Peter Kang, NDOORS Interactive, CEO. “The fans and
critics have spoken loudly and approvingly of Atlantica and that provides us
with extra motivation to increase and improve the quality and entertainment
value of the product we offer this year.”
