- Aion: The Tower of Eternity
- Edited by: 06/25/2010
It's been confirmed that there are two newest additions to the development team of Kingdom Under Fire II, which is currently being developed by Phantagram™ and BLUESIDE™ Inc, and will be published by NHN™ in Korea, and they are two of the most prestigious game developers Korean online game industry has to offer.
One is the creative director of KUFII project, Yong-Chan Jee, and the other one is the project manager / lead server programmer, Young-Sun Lee.
Yong-Chan Jee is known as the very brain behind designing the epic MMORPG "Aion: The Tower of Eternity", the game that's been praised by many as the game that revolutionized the course of Korea's online game industry. His unpredictable, and yet satisfying game design made Aion the #1 online game in Korea, and there are only handfuls who would argue that he's one of the most talented game designers the online gaming has seen.
"I've worked on RPGs for the most of my career, and personally I think this is a very good opportunity for me and consider myself very lucky to be able to work on a completely different kind of game like Kingdom Under Fire II. On top of Kingdom Under Fire series' trademark action and RTS elements, I believe bringing some online game touch into the series will definitely make the game even more dynamic and diverse. Some of the very familiar online game elements such as customization will be introduced for the first time in the series, and player will be able to customize not only characters but also troops, allowing them to create his or her own army. Gameplay wise, Kingdom Under Fire II will offer something for both the players that prefer action-heavy gameplay hacking and slashing being in the shoes of one of the heroes, and those who prefer the strategic side of the gameplay commanding multiple troops simultaneously. I think this kind of combination of various types of players can only be achieved through online gaming experience" says Yong-Chan Jee.
