<Dragona Online> has been famous thanks to its promotion model Aoi Sora, a Japanese AV actress, and the game itself has also been confirmed through the 3 tests and 2?guerrilla?events. The uncle gamers over 30 yo is its major target.?This is an interview with JaeMok Jung PD of LivePlex.
<Dragona Online> is the first self-developed title of LivePlex. It must be a huge burden.
The matter of finishing development was more important than how to do it. We tried not to make a game that cannot be completed or that gets delayed by excessive schedule. Yes we have expanded the content size because the feedback from the first CBT was not so bad. We have put our all effort into it.
Are you aiming the adult game since the major target is gamers over 30 yo?
LivePlex has decided aiming adult gamers. Of course we may make a game for teens but not right now. Success can be brought from this pool. I heard <Immortal Online> reached 50,000 CCU. In other words, a market for uncle gamers has settled in.
Targetting 20s is indeed a new challenge for us. We, as a new developer, chose the success based on stable base rather than the challenge. We just needed a game that makes LivePlex both publisher and developer. Also, we aim the number 1 in the uncle market.
Does the adult game mean adult oriented content or management?
We do not pursue any cutting body, excessive blood, or nudity at all. These are only considered as a matter of general game play. We pursue content like stock system.
One of the unique feature of <Dragona Online> is the stock system. What is the purpose of it?
The stock system is derived from an agony that something fun besides game play is needed. It was a thought that the stock in the game and the real stock of LivePlex?synchronize. But players can buy and sell only once a week in order to avoid abuse. Trading between players is unlimited. It is a something like off-board trade.
All the items on the stock are reset on every?Wednesday. Although it is not buying real stock, the value of the items will reflect the value of the company.
Casting Aoi Sora as a promotion model was controversy. Can we see her at OBT?
She will be working as an advertising model. We are preparing many things include events inside and outside of the game. But we are not sure if she will visit Korea for offline event yet.
Recent online games launch commercial service after short OBT. When do you think <Dragona Online> launch commercial service after OBT?
It will not be more than 2 weeks from OBT. Everything is ready.
Lastly, what is the final content?
We are preparing siege war which will be updated after OBT.
The owner of the castle can cast unique possession which turns the character into a dragon. Only one gamer can do it per a server. There will be 4 castles in the future but only 1 castle will be updated for now.
