Tencent Aurora Studio developed MMORPG and ‘Cheonae Myeongwoldo M’ will be released in Korea on the 24th. The PC version of Cheonae Myung-do has already shown the emotional emotion of the original novel of the same name and the unique worldview of martial arts as a game.

To solve this question, Tencent participated in G-Star in 2021 in the name of the developer Aurora Studio, and showed a demonstration version. Not all content was released, but the mobile martial arts MMORPGs were able to see the details that were often trimmed without the subtitles and dubbing errors. In addition to mobile, PC clients were also attempted to enjoy the unique taste of martial arts games that supported martial arts with non-mu-mu, or collaborated with non-mu-mu.

Ahead of ‘Cheonae Myeongwoldo M’, the developers were able to listen to the story from the development PD and Chelsea Cheng Art Director after Tencent Aurora Studio.

Q. Following the G-Star 2021, I conducted a CBT in Korea in March, but I wonder how the user feedback was.

We tried to improve convenience by gathering opinions on the UI. First of all, we have improved the overall UI design and supports the ability to hide the event related UI on the main screen. The UI improvement is difficult right now because it is a task to change the entire structure, but we will improve while converging the feedback of users.

** Q. Cheon Ae Myungwoldo is one of the best masterpieces of lyrical martial arts, and I wonder how it was built on the focus to reveal its emotion as mobile.

In order to give the story immersion, I tried to shoot the conversation between major NPCs and characters in the game and to produce as if watching a small episode through video production. In addition, I tried to recording voice actors by recruiting famous Korean voice actors. Currently, we have prepared about 170 minutes of cutcin based on the release of Korea’s Cheonae Myeongdo M.

▲ participated in G-Star 2021, received a user feedback, and also held various field events.

Q. In addition, the existing Cheonae Myeongwoldo is famous for its vast content, and what kind of criteria did you work when implementing the content on your mobile?

The most important part was to technically overcome the limitations of the small screen of the mobile and the resulting combat quality. We have studied the cool combat production of the PC version on mobile, and we have tried to improve the contents according to the mobile user’s Playstyle.

I also tried to reproduce graphics and combat operation, which are the advantages of the original PC game. I also succeeded the original PC in the story, content, and growth system design. In addition, we have enhanced and improved convenience, such as simplifying the combat system so that mobile users can play easily.

** Q. If you are a martial arts, you can’t miss it.

I think many users would have expected the light of martial arts. We also wanted to show the cool and brilliant movements that Gyeonggong brought as a martial arts MMORPG. Above all, the light ball of ‘Cheonae Myeongwoldo’ is characterized by its distinctive features for each door. Along with this, thanks to the careful research and technology of camera moving and art production, you can implement brilliant lights by Munpa that is no less than PC on mobile.

** Q. PVP ‘Nonum’ was also very important in the existing Cheonae Myeongwoldo. What did you consider to realize that fierce fight in the mobile environment? There is also a gap between PC client users and mobile users.

The 1VS1 PVP, the Nonum, has an easy operation and a cool combat expression, making it a popular content not only in the PC version but also in mobile versions in China. In addition to inheriting the core and outstanding combat skill mechanism of the PC version, we excluded unnecessary skill designs to reduce the difficulty of manipulation. At the same time, it was intuitively added to prevent strategic play on mobile.

The Matching System of the Nonum is a way of matching the rating in consideration of various factors such as player’s age, ranking, hidden score, and odds. It was developed to match the matching efficiency of the users in the play and match it as accurately as possible. Basically, mobile users are matched first, and only if the number of matchable users is extremely insufficient, the logic is applied to the PC user.

Running
Q. In the CBT version, only six doors came out, but how much do you hold the other Moonpa?

Since there are several doors on the PC version, and all the doors are popular, the users who have experienced the existing PC version may want to experience all the doors.

First of all, in the open specification, Munpa also considered the proportion of various contents such as party dungeons, raids, and guild content. On the other hand, we focused on allowing users to play with various doors as much as possible. In Cheonae Myeongwoldo, there are more optimized doors in tankers, dealers, and supporters, so users have prepared to enjoy them together.

In ‘Cheonae Myeongwoldo M’, Moonpa characters will be updated sequentially as well as PCs. The Moonpa will be released gradually according to the user’s pace, so please wait a little.

** Q. In addition, in the CBT version, there was a reaction that only three kinds of status contents came out of the chefs, a marker, and the current issue.

In the CBT, only a few contents were shown, but after the official opening of June 24, you can enjoy seven identity contents, including chefs, votes, and current issues, including posols, explorers, civilians, and cooperatives. There are a variety of missions for each person, and there are fun play elements.

Q. Martial arts MMORPGs released in Korea used to have translation issues such as Chinese dubbing suddenly mixed or popping Chinese subtitles. What is the driving force that was able to pack the details like this?

In order to be a game that anyone can understand and play with all ages, four Chinese researchers from Yonsei University participated in the supervision and collaborated with more than 20 professional translators to improve the completion of localization.

Q. The factor that interacts with colleagues has increased considerably than the existing Cheonae Myeongwoldo. Why did you make this change?

In the mobile version of Cheonae Myeongwoldo M, NPC’s favor is one of the characteristic content in the mobile version. I hope that not only the story but also the users can interact with their favorite NPC, find out the situation and story of the NPC, and have a deeper attachment. In line with the genre of MMORPG, we have developed it to feel like a role-playing in the world.

** Q. Many users who have been encountered in Cheonae Myeongwoldo have encountered a lot of users, but there are some users who will be approached in terms of new mobile MMORPG without the existing Myeongwoldo. What did you prepare to inform users without prior knowledge of the worldview of Cheonae Myeongwoldo and to inform the knowledge of the dictionary?

The story of the player of ‘Cheonae Myeongwoldo M’ is a story that takes place after the original novel. Although he borrowed the relationship between Ko Ryong’s values and the era of the original novel, and the relationship between the characters, he was organized so that there was no problem in understanding the story without knowing the original.

In particular, while working on the story cut scene, the users who do not know the original work could easily understand the relationship between the characters and the characters. It is not considered to provide additional information about Koryong writer and existing original work, but if you have a chance, we will consider it.

Q. Since Chun Ae Myungwoldo is an important game, Cheonae Myung-wol was the most surprising of M. Why did you add this feature?

From the development team’s point of view, I wanted to enjoy the story that I made hard, but I didn’t want to put a skip function, but I felt that the users who enjoyed the content should consider.

So I created a function to skip it for users who are not interested in or in a hurry. Even after the main story skip, you can see the story you skipped earlier when you have interest or time. The story is also one of the big strengths of our game, so it is recommended to listen.

▲ While working on stories such as cinematics,

Q. Cheon Ae Myung-wol also prepared for Korea’s launch of Korea?

In order to increase quality localization services and the satisfaction of Korean users, we have selected Sung Woo-jin and other specialized advertising models. In addition, we have prepared a Jjimjilbang Hair headdress item for Korean users with rewards of 1.5 million registrants. In addition, we are preparing for events and updates only for various items and Korean users in the future. The first event of Korea will be released as soon as possible.
