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 3×3 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
“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
