Earthrise: An Interview with CEO Atanas Atanasov

Sci-Fi plus PvP Freedom for All
Sci-Fi plus PvP Freedom for All

The science-fiction genre seems to be on the rise in the massively multiplayer gaming marketplace. With the release of Tabula Rasa, the continuing success of EVE Online, and the ongoing development of Jumpgate Evolution, it seems only logical that the next round of MMOG unveilings should include a good helping of sci-fi. Recently, the Bulgaria-based Masthead Studios announced that they were hard at work developing a PvP-oriented science fiction game called Earthrise. The Ten Ton Hammer staff tracked down Atanas Atanasov, CEO of Masthead Studios, to answer a few of our questions about the game.

If I must describe PvP in Earthrise with one word – it is "freedom". In most popular MMORPG titles you are limited to attacking players from the opposite faction or players from a guild that you are at war with. Earthrise will give freedom to the players to attack anyone they want to in most areas, not without consequences however.
