Atlantica Online developer NDOORS Inc. has acquired CrazyBox Entertainment, the South Korea-based developer of the online first-person-shooter Seven Years of War.
CrazyBox, founded in 2004, has garnered praise for Seven Years of War, with action that takes players into the thick of urban military combat. The game is currently published in Japan.
NDOORS will now be able to incorporate the technologies developed by CrazyBox to produce new games in the FPS genre, expanding NDOORS diverse range of titles. In addition to the strategic turn-based MMORPG Atlantica, NDOORS has developed Luminary: Rise of the GoonZu, a MMORPG that incorporates real-world style politics and economics, and the time-traveling MMO Time N Tales.
A new FPS will be introduced next summer by NDOORS.
“Were excited about the synergy that will be created by melding Crazyboxs technology with NDOORSs creativity,” said Cho Seong Won, CEO, NDOORS. “This acquisition will allow us to provide people a broad range of games. We look forward to making those games fresh and exciting for all players out there.”
Atlantica Online is set on Earth, in a parallel reality that takes players through a fantastic journey to discover the lost secrets of Atlantis. With its heavy emphasis on strategy, Atlantica was designed to stand out amongst the cookie-cutter MMOs. The strategic gameplay incorporated into the turn-based combat, mercenary and country management systems will appeal to strategy and RPG players.
