World-exclusive peek at new RAN game from South Korean developer
By Joey Alarilla, hackenslash Editor INQUIRER.net IN A WORLD exclusive, South Korean developer Min Communications has presented a new title based on the RAN Online story, but which is a completely new game that offers cute characters and more accessible gameplay. P.B. Kim, producer of Min Communications, who spoke through an interpreter, said the working title of the game was RAN AS (Another Story) but it is now known as OS Online. OS stands for "One with the Space," and Kim said the idea is to take different stories from all over the world, including monsters from different cultures, and place them in one massively multiplayer online game. Kim declined to say when the game would be launched, though it is now undergoing testing in South Korea. The use of cute characters is expected to broaden the appeal of the game. "It is a game the whole family can play," Kim said through his interpreter. OS Online will feature two schools and six grades. Kim said the idea is to take advantage of the RAN Online storyline that has already won the loyalty of hundreds of thousands of gamers across the region, and introduce it to a new set of gamers and even people who might not consider themselves gamers through by using cute characters. During his presentation, Kim also showed an in-game clip from the game in a world-exclusive sneak peek at OS Online. Here's a copy of the video clip on our YouTube channel.
