'2Moons' - 22 New Screens

2Moons is a free, totally brutal MMORPG designed specifically for adult gamers. No mercy for the weak, no pity for the dying, no tears for the slain, 2Moons was created to be an easy-to-get-into title set in an aggressive, dangerous and visually stunning world.

With 24-years of experience in the video game development business David Perry, whose latest Matrix Movie related game projects are estimated to have grossed over $300 million, hand picked his key creative partner, Mr. Sunghun Baek for the 2Moons project. Mr. Baek is the Designer and Chief Technical Officer for GameHi, a blockbuster game maker from Korea.

As Acclaim CEO Howard Marks explains "David is a superstar in the game world and his first MMORPG is going to change the 'game.'"

"2Moons is a game that focuses on training players to become saviors in a world where any hope for survival was virtually nil," says Perry. "Instead of wading through a lot of heavy back story, the game's narrative is all about the individual's journey as they grow to become a level 100+ warrior. And the arcade style fighting system in the game lets you dive right in and go hand to hand with some of the most impressive enemies in a massively multiplayer game yet."

2Moons is based upon a successful MMO called Dekaron in Korea. "Many Asian games just get translated and thrown out on the USA market", says David Perry, "Acclaim wanted to change that model." "There's a clear need for Western designers to get involved if the games end up here", and so this is a special situation where the original game creator and I have decided to partner on this challenge", to take the framework of a working successful MMO and re-make it specifically for Western audiences.

This collaboration of two leading game designers from either side of the planet, working on a game of this titanic scale, is hailed as visionary and very exciting. But perhaps the partnership's most beneficial component for players is that Acclaim's model is based on releasing full-price games for free. With no subscriptions, and no charge to download the game, it will be funded mostly by advertising--and (even more radically) the user will be allowed to turn off the in-game adverting if they choose. With Perry's approach, Acclaim is determined to offer truly free gameplay by creating a new kind of advertising model for the industry.

Developed by former Shiny founder Dave Perry, This M-Rated title is targeted at those looking for an adrenaline soaked experience and aimed squarely at players looking to kick @$$ for free!
