MMOABC: Can you tell us a little bit about Tales Runner?
Tales Runner is a fun and fast paced racing game developed by Rhaon Entertainment. Players will enjoy the tumbling, running, and jumping to get through obstacles. It consists of a wide variety of challenging and very exciting maps. There are multiple game modes; basic races, relay races, 30 player survival races and even a single player mode. For the more social users there is a town in which players can interact, show off their gear, create a family (guild) or become a “couple” with someone else.
MMOABC: How does Tales Runner differentiate itself from other MMORPG games?
Tales Runner is not an MMORPG. It is an MMO Racing game. There aren’t a lot of quality games in this genre and we feel that Tales Runner will do extremely well because of its unique game play and features. It is a racing game but it also has many of the elements of an RPG. There is a leveling system, a town where players can socialize, as well as an alchemy system that players can use to craft items to help improve their stats. This is not even to mention the scores of items and outfits that each character has access to.
MMOABC: Online hacking and spamming are widely evident in the MMORPG realm, how does Tales Runner handle these disruptions?
We are aware that hacking and spamming are issues that can immediately invalidate any competitor in the online gaming market. We are already talking to several companies and seeing which one can provide us with the best anti hack security. Once we’ve found out which is best for us we’ll be using their services to keep hackers out of our game. As for the spamming, we will be doing our best to maintain a constant presence in game to make sure that that issue is handled on a first hand basis.
MMOABC: Many MMORPG operators/publishers are currently hosting many games in different geographic regions. Some are "free to play" while others are "pay to play." What is your take on this?
I think that it’s great to see that gaming has come such a long way in a relatively short period of time, especially the free to play market. These days, gamers all over the world from different economic backgrounds have the ability to play many quality games. I think that free to play games are the way to go because this genre continues to expand and improve on a regular basis. There are a lot of new free to play games coming out that are comparable to some of the pay to play games that already exist.
MMOABC: Are you guys planning to do any Tales Runner contest events in the next coming weeks or months?
We will be hosting a variety of events over the next month or so. We don’t want to go into detail about them because we want our players to be surprised by what we have in store. Please check our site for regular updates regarding future events.
MMOABC: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to talk with us. We wish the best of luck to Tales Runner!
