Ten Ton Hammer: Earth Eternal boasts an incredible number of races: 22 in all, covering most of the animal kingdom (the land dwellers, anyway). What makes each race different or special, given that none has a gameplay advantage over another?
Mihaly: Nothing is different in terms of functionality. We made the decision to allow players to choose their in-game look and divorce it from their function. We wanted to ensure that if you wanted to be a Mage, for instance, you didn’t have to be one of a few races in order to be an effective Mage. We may implement non-functional differences between races, like race-specific emotes, but we don’t intend to create statistical differences between the races.
