I see the 2Moons crossing...
CCR we ain't, but one developer is experiencing a revival all his own. Long known in the videogame industry, Dave Perry announced he's remaking a Korean MMO in his own image this week. If you haven't heard, it's going to be called 2Moons, a free fantasy MMO supported by advertising. Firing Squad asked Perry why he's venturing down this new path:
If I'm required to know the back history of 5 clans, or watch 20 minutes of cinematics, or read a website before I can have fun, it just bugs me. So I've been toying with the idea of making an MMO that's easy to get into, easy to understand, possibly funny at points, but that makes you feel bad-ass. Not wanting to wait 3 years to find out how it went, I looked for games/engines that could be a match. The closest I could find was a game called Dekaron made by GameHi in Korea. So now I had to convince the creator of that game to let me make any changes (not small ones, big ones, like "Erm... Would you mind if we changed the entire story?") They agreed!
