Last year CJ Internet, Korean online game publisher and developer, launched a new style of MMORPG, “PRIUS Online“, with its catchphrase of “It’s the first emotional fantasy MMORPG in my life.” Five months after it was open to the public its export contract volumes are now reaching to tens of millions of dollars, which are seen quite impressive.
“PRIUS Online” is a MMORPG that distinguishes itself from other MMORPGs by its emphasis on fantasy and emotional factors within a play. Seeking to find ways to embed the factors in the game CJGS, CJ Internet Game studio, created 3C(Character) system where a gamer has his/her own character, a little girl “Anima” who is a soulmate as well as an assistance, and a large Gigas summoner.
.Among the characters “Anima” plays the biggest role in making the game reflected in its concept of emotional fantasy. She is not just a pet gamers used to have when playing other MMORPGs. “Anima” has lots of potential abilities gamers should harness in order to win the game, but whether gamers can use it or not depends on their treatments on her. It’s because the degree of intimacy gamers exchange with her will decide the types of her abilities. In doing so the character “Anima” has gamers feel like playing a upbringing simulation game such as “Princess Maker” while actually playing a MMORPG.
I think it is obvious that CJ Internet’s “PRIUS Online” has come to market with a fairly fresh concept, and it has been making a success especially in exporting. But, gamers’ responses to the game varies considerably. So, it might be better for you to try the game before judging whether the game is well made or not.
