Atlantica Online Honored as One of the Year’s Best MMORPGs

NDOORS Interactive, creators of the strategic turn-based MMORPG, Atlantica Online, announce that Atlantica has been recognized as one of the best MMORPGs of 2008. Atlantica Online is a game that sends players on a journey around the globe, and this year the title made significant progress in attracting a large and diverse user base in North America while receiving critical acclaim for its quality, accessibility, and entertainment value.

The list of honors for Atlantica recently expanded to include the title of "Best Game" at the Korea Game Awards, hosted by the Game Industries Association on Dec. 16. Kim Tae Gon, the game's head producer, received commendation as an "Excellent Developer" at the KGA for his work on Atlantica. These awards follow the Golden Plume trophy that Atlantica took home for "Best Foreign Online Game" at the ChinaJoy Conference in November 2008.

Despite launching in the fourth quarter of 2008, Atlantica Online quickly made up for lost time by being nominated as one of the "Best New Games of 2008" by the editors at the genre leading website, visited by over 1 million MMO-playing readers every month.

Atlantica Online's free-to-play business model was one of the reasons that popular MMO site Ten Ton Hammer bestowed the game with the title of "Best Free-to-Play Game of 2008." Ten Ton Hammer also cited the fact that Atlantica was "smoother and more fun than anything I had played in a long time, " in their decision to give the game a nearly perfect review score of "4.5/5 Hammers." With such praise as "easily the best [free-to-play] game I have played and … more fun than many subscription games I have tried" from Ten Ton Hammer, it is no wonder that the game has found success among a surprisingly diverse crowd of players.
