Bulgarian game developer Masthead Studios
has been putting a lot of effort into spreading the word about their upcoming post-apocalytic MMO Earthrise
. Massively had a chance to sit down with Masthead Studios CEO Atanas Atanasov at GDC 2009
for a preview of Earthrise
which gave us a taste of what to expect from the title, but we're always on the lookout for more info about the game.
We've come across a short interview at QJ.NET
with Atanasov that might be worth a read if you're excited about the dystopian MMO. He discusses some of the major game design decisions Masthead Studios made with Earthrise
in respect to character progression (both online and offline) as well as departing from a few of the tried-and-true systems found in other MMOs on the market. Have a look at the Earthrise interview over at QJ.NET
for more on the sandbox elements of this first release from Masthead Studios.
