Dofus Announced

Posted Thu, Aug 18, 2005 by Boomjack

Let's pick a cool name for a game....hrm.... Dofus!
The official Dofus site is announcing that September 1st will be the international release. Everyone's favourite Dofus, Michael Jackson thumbed his fake nose at us and yelled:

" ANKAMA Studio is proud to announce the international release of its Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game called DOFUS.
After a successful release in France last year, DOFUS, a unique tactical MMORPG, will be available worldwide.

During 2 months pen beta test, 80.000 players throughout the world have discovered DOFUS and started their journey in the mysterious Province of Amakna.
And now it is time for all internet players to go further and discover all secrets of the lands of Amakna and live thrilling and wonderful adventures.
DOFUS is a Tactical MMORPG which means players evolve in a real time universe, but when they fight against monsters or against other players, action is turn-based (with specific number of actions each turn). Thus, fights are breathtaking and each move is strategic."

[Ed: How much time was spent coming up with that name? The fact that it was released in France first makes it hard for me to stop chuckling.]


It seems that every online game developer these days wants a piece of the mobile gaming market pie and Ankama Games is no exception. According to an Ankama press release, DOFUS: Battle launched on for the iPad and iPhone devices today. DOFUS: Battle is a mix of Tower Defense, real-time strategy and RPG. The game is based in Ankama's popular DOFUS universe and uses locations, characters, monsters and equipment that will be familiar to DOFUS players.

DOFUS: Battle is available in every country but is currently only available in French, English and Spanish languages. Check out the official press release and trailer after the break for more game details.
