An exclusive peek at game design of Moonlight Online
The development team behind IGG’s first vampire-themed MMORPG, Moonlight Online, is hard at work on the game. They took just enough time out to send along details about the dynamics of character movement and the concepts behind the Moonlight universe and its inhabitants, so sit back and enjoy!
With a 360-degree camera rotation offering a fully 3D gaming experience, players will use both their keyboard and mouse to control the user interface. While developing in-game movement for the three great races, the team is focusing on highlighting the acrobatic abilities that enable parkour-style stunts in real-time combat. The fluid leaps and death-defying feats characters perform in the game may seem surreal or downright impossible, but the visual impact they deliver will be realistic. Vampires will be the epitome of grace and elegance, humans will personify balance and stability, and werewolves will move with all the force of their rage and fury.
What about the look of the game? On what sort of canvas will characters paint their tales in the universe of Moonlight Online? Peace-loving humans will embark on their free-spirited journeys from their rustic farms by the verdant countryside. Savage werewolves begin their feral adventures in the vast moonlit wastelands. The proud and noble vampires will have their roots in a medieval gothic metropolis teeming with opulence and mystery. With a distinct and unique look for each in mind, the team has set out to create breathtaking game landscapes made to fit the three great races.
