Softon Entertainment boast to be the first company to develop a vampire massively multiplayer online role-playing computer game. DarkEden is a horror themed game that is presented in isometric projection. The story line is based on war between the vampires, humans and ousters who are fictionally located in a town called Helea.
The vampires form war alliances with sole purpose of awaken Lilith, the mother vampire who is perceived to have incredible powers. However, the alliance of Vlad, Elizabeth and Gilles face challenges in conquering the mountainous area of Helea since the humans fight against them. The human army bombards Helea with explosives thereby making it hard for the master vampires to awaken Lilith from her tomb.
The only source of power that remains for the master vampires is Lilith’s soul which is scattered all over Helea. After long search, the vampires get pieces of Lilith’s soul and disagree on how to share power. The vampires start a civil war which awakens the ousters from their sleep. Angered by what humans and vampires have done to Helea, the Ousters begin to wipe the warring groups from the area.
DarkEden is presented in various languages such as Korea, Chinese, English, Thai and Japanese. Bloodshed takes center stage in the game since DarkEden is a hack and slash game. In order for the players to progress, they are required to kill gangs of monsters with their crude weapons and gain experience points. The vampires have to kill and drink blood of players or monsters in order to gain full experience points available. Each race has special advantages in order to reap maximum experience points.
DarkEden offers a balanced game play by offering different time zones in which different races are most efficient; for instance, the vampires are weakest during daytime and can cause heavy damage at time. The ousters and humans are active during the day and weak at night.
Though DarkEden was based on hack and slash orientation, it offered fantastic epic experience in fictional country with horrific monsters. The ability to incorporate different time zones in the game where different races presented their weaknesses as well as strengths is a plus for DarkEden.
DarkEden is one of the old MMORPG games that has existed in different countries for close to eight years. Based on old platforms and poor graphics, the game’s attractive nature has been shunned by the contemporary online games that offer sophisticated graphics with diverse gameplay. The storyline is still unique and Softon games should consider developing a new version of DarkEden that is relevant to the current technology.
