Welcome to this week's edition of our Community Spotlight.
Fresh from the Games Developer's Conference in San Francisco we have hot news from the lips of John and Tony Tang, the masterminds behind Runes of Magic and heads of Runewaker Entertainement.
Massively chats with Runewaker
Massively sat down with John and Tony for a brief chat and summed up their discussion nicely in a brief article, saying that Runes of Magic has lots more in store.
Another good read is the interview GetBuffed posted on their website recently. Reporter iTZkooPA talked to the Tang brothers and released his Interview with Runewaker a couple of days ago.
TenTonHammer - Top 10 Free-to-Play Games
We got great feedback from TenTonHammer on our release under the headline "The Launch That Faced Thousands of Ships". Let's just quote them:
"In just under two weeks since the official launch of RoM, Frogster's F2P title is shaking the industry. Even if you normally dismiss F2P games, you have to take notice of RoM because it does so many things right. I won't rehash it all here because my review will be along soon enough. The major points to note are that the title offers a dual class system, raid content, crafting, and all the other extras of a standard MMOG. The big deal is that RoM delivers all of the features well. The game doesn't try to add in features to check off items on a list; each component is carefully designed to add value to the entire product."
IGN on the Exclusive Licensing Deal
We have heard from a number of people on the boards that they would love to see other, localised versions of Runes of Magic than just the existing German and English versions. Well, we got good news for all of you. Have a look at IGN's news "Frogster Secures Further Territories for Runes of Magic" - essentially that means that we can now start localising the game into more languages like e.g. Spanish.
