Darkness Is Coming to Elsword!

KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPGs, today announces the launch of the new, menacing Job path for Ara: Little Specter. View the new video HERE.

Ara Haan has spent every waking minute searching for a way to redeem her demon-possessed, disgraced brother. Obsessed with her goal, she’s overlooked the very power that has bolstered her immense strength: Eun, the Millennium Fox Spirit. Encased within the very hairpin that Ara keeps so close, Eun writhes inside an eternal prison. Ara’s ancestors confined the ancient spirit as a demon. Always striving to follow the right path, Ara finds the seal was made using the clandestine Haan family art of exorcism. The harrowing truth comes to bear… only a member of the Haan family can cast confinement upon the demons, and break that bond. The entire Haan family was annihilated by the demon army, led by her brother. Ara sets out to master the ominous art herself.

Relentless, Ara stopped at nothing to seek out the alchemist Echo, who became curious about the ancient fox spirit now sharing control of Ara’s body. During the alchemist’s experiments, she learned of a mystic apparatus that can project Eun’s memories. This allowed her to see the exact moment when Eun was captured in the hairpin. From this vision, she learned the secret exorcism technique that her ancestors performed to create the seal and how she might break it. Ara succeeded in cultivating Eun’s supernatural powers from the hairpin… and from within, an amalgamation of Ara’s martial prowess and a dark, ethereal ferocity grew, and in that moment, the Dark Fox was born. With her newly acquired skills, she became widely known as the Little Specter.

Secret Exorcism Art: Night Parade of One-Hundred Souls

Unlock a Secret Skill: As Little Specter, Ara is dedicated to learning her ancestors’ Exorcism Arts. As a combo, players can 3 new, Job specific skills in succession in order to unlock the Secret Skill. Once executed successfully, Ara jumps and disappears, then quickly reappears above the enemy last struck by Darkness Sever then she comes crashing down on the enemy and sets off a storm of specters.

Ara Haan Level Boost Event!
For a limited time, you can boost one base-job Ara up to Level 35 instantly (one character per account only). Just bring Ara to the village or a resting area between fields. Wait for the message to pop up then click the Level Boost button. Once you’ve done this, you will also receive the Level Boost Cube thru the mail!

Ara’s power has grown immensely, but who is in control? The Dark Fox is only the first to cast this harrowing shadow across the land of Elrios. The beckoning howl of the Millennium Fox echoes across the underworld and shakes its denizens to the very core… Darkness is Coming!

Mission Control: NanoMech Lands on Steam Early Access

Players use authentic nanoscience while fighting a rogue AI on Mars!

Mission Control: NanoMech is now available on Steam Early Access where users can contribute to the development of this game based on authentic nanoscience and real life NASA space technology.

Find out more at http://store.steampowered.com/app/338030/

NanoMech is a single-player action-adventure game in which players use nanoscience to upgrade future space technologies to accomplish mission objectives. Set fifty years in the future as mankind is colonizing the solar system, the player begins the game by delivering a shipment of raw materials to a factory on the surface of Mars. A rogue artificial intelligence named D-brain has taken control of the factory and most of its robotic workers and refuses to let the humans go. With the threat of a massive Mars dust storm cutting off communications to the rest of the Mars bases, it’s up to the player to save the other humans trapped inside the factory.

Luckily, several friendly robots are on hand to help the player fight back. The robots gift the player with a special spacesuit and teach the player how it can be improved with nanotechnology. As the game progresses, the player is helped further by scientists hiding inside the factory who leave clues and information that help the player understand and use the nanomaterials in optimal ways. This improvement process must be mastered by players as it is directly linked to the progressive difficulty in the game. Presented with puzzle challenges, the player must race against the clock to keep their robotic team members functioning while searching for more raw materials and the hidden scientists in order to get strong enough to confront D-brain directly.

NanoMech was partially funded under grants from the National Science Foundation (Grants #0823411, 0835450) and developed in collaboration with NASA through a Space Act Agreement. Nanotechnology, 3D printing and other cutting edge technologies will drive space exploration in the future. The game is based on real nanotechnology and was reviewed by experts for accuracy. Players learn about and authentically use these technologies in order to improve their equipment and succeed at mission objectives. As players learn how to defeat D-brain, they learn about atomic structures of nanomaterials and their different capabilities. Nanotechnology is science, engineering and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Materials developed using this technology have special properties not previously present with traditional methods.
