Project >X<

Just got news. I think it’s safe enough to reveal this.

For 2008, mobiusgames will be offering 2 new game titles for the first half of this year:

GONG! – an MMO Casual Game based on soccer, and cute fashion styling

and

Dekaron– an MMO Extreme Action Online Game. In the US, Acclaim re-worked Dekaron into their own version and called it “2Moons”. Currently, Dekaron is available in Europe as EU Dekaron. More details soon.

You heard it here first, gamers.

What do you think of these new mobiusgames titles?

Pwn Intended Letters

Nako, so exciting. Naglagay na kami ng banners here sa office for Project >X< and it’s really going to be big. Plus, the installer for GONG! are ready na, we just have to follow The Plan for its release and make it available sa GONG! Website.

Anyway, I want to share some letters na nakuha namin for Pwn Intended, ang ating webcomic series here sa mobiusgames.

From “Felippe Baricuatro”

dear team mobiusgames
your 1st issue of pwn intended really rocks then i red the other issues dang it really made me laugh. thnx for the webcomic I hope the next one is better thnx team mobiusgames ^_^

Dang! talaga, eh no? Salamat rin sa mga katropa nating sina Chester Cabanos, lordz legend, christian rey arada, john roger, mary france celada, Dayle Leyson na nag-email rin sa pwnintended@gmail.com about their our strip.

Well, Felippe (and everyone): Thanks for taking the time to write to us about Pwn Intended!, the first and only locally produced webcomic strip for gamers by gamers. We’re really happy that you guys are enjoying something we worked so hard for. In fact, sama ko na rin sa mga pasasalamatan si DayLe RaKiOnZtA for telling his sharing Pwn Intended to his Friendsters. Great job, mga katropa!

Right now, the Pwn Intended team (that’s Lois, Eric, and Me) are already working on the second episode of Pwn Intended. Right now, we’re still discussing where it’s going, and medyo controversial ata ang naisip kong title for our next episode:

Pwn Intended: A Magical Place of True Adventure

What do you think? Masyado bang controversial?

Hehehe…

Anyway, based on what we have so far, the next episode is going to be set in a faraway magical place called “Nu”. The land is in trouble because the old king just died, and he left everything to his dog. Srsly. His cute, adorable puppy. Now, the thing is, as it turns out, the cute puppy is the reincarnation of The Supreme Evil One who once tried to take over the entire land of Nu, and being a cute puppy is just a part of his Plan Most Evil for World Domination. With him in power, Nu is in peril!

And the only one who can save the land is the Snow Queen’s son who was sent to a faraway place in order to protect and train him for his fate as the savior of Nu…

So, can a young boy addicted to an MMO RPG called “Mu” actually save the land of Nu? Stay tuned to find out! After all, everything is possible in… A Magical Place of True Adventure.

GONG BANG NA!

Hahahaha… Kinaya nyo title natin, mga katropa? Hahaha…

Pansin ko, up na pala ang ating teaser site! Ang cute talaga, shet. Kainis, super busy ko sa Project <X>, hindi tuloy ako masyado makajoin sa mga soccer matches. Waaaaah. Ayoko na magtrabaho, gusto ko na mag-going-going-GONG!

Anyway, ngayong malapit na malapit na ang release ng official GONG! website at ang launch ng GONG! into Open Beta, ano sa palagay nyo dapat itawag sa mga mobius katropang adik na adik sa GONG! ? Gong Bangers? Gonggolians? Gonggoloids? Gong Gang? Gongsters?

Comment lang ng comment, mga katropa! At wag kalimutang ibookmark ang inyong katropang napapahamak sa kakablog para sa inyo,

Extasiege.

Project

Whew. Been hard at work rushing several copies, and other necessary paperworks for Project <X>. Must not say anything to a single soul about this. Must not give hints. Must not give clues.

ArGh.

Oh, the temptation.

Project <X> will change the gaming scene forever. That’s all I’m saying.

Of Heroes and Saints

Sigmund Freud once said men want to be poets and heroes, whereas A.S. Byatt reacted with one of her female characters wanting to be a poet and a poem.

Which isn’t really related to this post.

Hahaha… papaka-profound shit lang. Actually, I’ve been thinking about a very important part of the mobius katropa eh, the Game Masters.

The Game Masters are unique individuals tasked with the arduous job of managing in-game events, procedures, etc. They usually get the worst PR because, as we all know, unsatisfied customers make more noise than the happy ones. Game Masters, also, are the most popular katropas. They represent mobiusgames directly to the players on a daily basis. Players idolize them; every kid wants to have their jobs.

I was thinking, siguro hindi narerealize ng mga tao how hard it is to be a GM eh. Ang laki ng responsibility, ang laki ng expectations.

That’s why we honor their right to privacy. I suppose para silang superheroes eh, kailangan ng secret identity. Think about it.

Superheroes need to hide behind masks not because they’re ashamed of what they do. Kasi, di ba, there’s this thing where those around them get involved sa problema nila kahit hindi naman madamay. Like Lois Lane. Like Auntie May. Like Ding. Hehehehe…

Bakit? Kasi hindi naman kayang iligtas ng superheroes lahat ng nangangailangan ng kaligtasan eh. Ang laki kayang responsibility ang mamili at magjudge who deserves to be saved and who doesn’t, di ba? Parang sa DC universe, when 9-11 happened, the superheroes were busy and they weren’t able to get there on time. May anonymity tuloy towards superheroes.

Superheroes aren’t saints. They can’t save everyone who prays for salvation. Ganun talaga buhay, try nyo kaya maging superhero. It’s not such a super life. Madaming nag-iingay, nagca-cause ng civil war, kasi hindi sila kayang iligtas ng superhero na hinahangaan nila. Pero di ba, dapat nating tanggapin yun? Shit happens.

Nako, mga katropa, mabuti pa kwentuhan na lang tayo. Kung superhero ka, sino gusto mong iligtas? Comment kayo ha!

Medal Promo Thing

Currently, we’re running this event in Mu Online where monsters drop medals containing random items and jewels. I don’t know why this copy got rejected:

Welcome to unemployment, Batch 2008! Here’s something to make your life infinitely more fun before you have to deal with the worst monster (your Future Boss) working life has to offer: The Mu Medal Event! Each monster killed will drop a medal. Collect medals and drop them from your inventory for surprise gifts! Medals have chances of dropping Zen, random items, or random jewels!

Hey, I was just being honest! Right? Hehehehe…

Anyway, to all you Mutizens out there, catch this exciting event before you have to drag your lazy asses back to school, or your parents kick you out to go hunt for a job. Also, make sure you max out your ePoints on our Summer Heat, Summer Treat promo.

WTH is GO(i)NG On Here?

Take a guess. What’s going on here? hehehee…

It’s a screenshot from our newest game title, GONG! Soon to be launched simultaneously here in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore. Stay tuned for more details.
