On November 24, 2009, I came across an editorial titled “the End of Music” from nytimes.com,
At the first paragraph, the writer GLENN BRANCA told a true story and expressed his opinion about Music.
However, I am not here to discuss Music on Gaming Site, but I am going to voice my opinion in a passive way:
Not long ago, maybe one week, we covered a piece of news that Nap Was was most likely designed based on Evony and Kingory. That is true from their functionality and ingame items, but I would rather say that is China-business model than the Copycat.
Is it a case of the survival of the fittest?
We got insider’s news that Kingory is struggling to stay alive, the servers of Kings of nations and Rise of Empire have been relegated to the underground and have already been closed due to “stereotyped innovation”, Empire Craft has stopped evolving and become a dead browser game.
On the other hand,Nap War comes last month. but it has been proved not a good game for browser game fans.
Today, Three Kingdoms Online has its release date. Let’s take a look at its press release.
Koramgame proudly presents： Three Kingdoms Online, a massive multiplayer online SLG game based on ancient Chinese history, scheduled to release its English version next week. The game is inviting players all over the world to play free of charge. Three Kingdoms Online is rich in culture and features, offering its players an unique experience never before found in a browser game.
The game was first released in China, and caused sensational popularity almost immediately upon release. Currently the game has accumulated tens of million of users and fans. The game is also the consecutive winner of ChinaJoy “Best Browser Game” of 2008 and 2009.
The Three Kingdoms period (169-280AD) is a historic period in ancient China. The nation was divided into three kingdoms and their quest for total domination has been a fascinating topic for historians and gamers alike. The publishing of The Romance of Three Kingdoms (14th century) has turned this part of Chinese history into the most famous piece of literature, introducing vibrant and intriguing stories on heroes, weapons, war strategy and diplomatic tension.
While many other Asian game makers have released various classic titles regarding this time period, the Three Kingdoms Online is the first of them developed as a web-based game. The game allows players to compete and cooperate with other players, allowing much more realistic diplomatic and military actions. The development team also tried their best to include cultural and historic elements. Gamers will find much of Chinese ancient history captured by this release.
KORAMGAME.COM has emerged as a prominent leader in the Chinese browser game industry. The company has developed a number of outstanding, award-winning browser-based games.
