The MMO Gamer recently had the opportunity to sit down with Gravity's Mario Fernandez Jr., community manager, and Joon Yoon, marketing and PR manager, to discuss Requiem: Bloodymare, and the process of importing East Asian titles in general.
Mario Fernandez Jr. on why the game is horror-themed: "We wanted to target a different market. There's a lot of fantasy MMOs out there. Our world was technologically advanced, but, through so much war and cataclysm it's changed dramatically. It's almost back to the medieval period.
It's a post-apocalyptic world. You still see remnants of the science, you have the DNA system, the fact that your character is a bio-engineered super-soldier, something unique to this world.
A lot of the monsters have a bio-mechanical feel, they'll have machine parts, gruesome things like monsters attached to other monsters, blood, gore, and a lot of different things."
