‘Maze: The treasure hunters’ is revealed at ChangYou’s media press conference in Beijing.

Maze is a FPS based shooting RPG and sets up battles between Relic Chaser and Treasure Hunter. Relic Hunter is the secret group trying to use the power of ancient relics for its own purpose. Treasure Hunter is the one who would stop them. The purpose of the game is adventuring through ancient ruins all over the world and defeating ancient monster to acquire treasures.

Users would fight against ancient monsters as well as disassemble traps that protect treasures. To achieve goals, a user needs to cooperate with other users.

The weapons and classes in the game are familiar with most FPS game users. Classes would be categorized as Scouter, Assaulter, Sniper, Heavy Trooper. However, characters gain experience points after killing monsters and improve his/her skills just like you have experienced in RPG.

[North America] Chinese Influx

I had a chance to meet with online game publishers and other game-related companies in Northern California yesterday at a nice gathering organized by F2P Forum. And it seems like it’s not just Korean companies in here anymore. I can probably name 16 or so Korean publishers who have actually physical presence in North America- majority of them are based in California.

Now Chinese companies are catching up; Perfect World (Chi: 完美世界) is doing great with its 3 games (or at least they told me so) and IGG still Got Games. THQ*ICE just began Dragonica Online OBT. Besides them, Tencent has offices on the East and the West coast and ChangYou (?游: Chi) is working on its first game in North America.

It’d be interesting to see how these numbers will change. By the way let me know if I missed out someone.
