Taikodom: Living Universe
Taikodom: Living Universe offers 3D graphics in a world in which
the player maneuvers his spaceship in real time and faces
challenging battles to defend his piece of space in the 23rd
Century. It offers innovative artificial intelligence technology
that enables the player to interfere in story development.
Totally developed in Brazil, Taikodom: Living Universe was
Hoplon Infotainment's first project, the first Brazilian game
released at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), which is held in
Los Angeles, USA.
Idealized by David Jones, creator of the GTA (Grand Theft Auto)
series, APB: Reloaded is a free-to-play action MMO, with sales of
online items, totally in Portuguese. This is the first MMOTPS
(massive multiplayer online third person shooter game) in the
Sandbox style in which the players can circulate freely in an open
world, performing nonlinear missions and events.
In the city of San Paro, a metropolis dominated by crime, the
player must choose between two rival factions: the Just, who combat
crime, or the Criminals, who defend freedom in the city. The game
offers 27 exclusive pilotable vehicles and more than 30 totally
customizable weapons that increase the action in PvP (Player versus
Player) combat against rival factions.
Fallen Earth combines the precision of first person shooting
games (FPS) with the evolution of characters and the strategy of an
RPG. The story takes place in post-Apocalyptic future in Grand
Canyon, one of the last inhabitable places on Earth, while humanity
is on the brink of extinction.
Nearly 95% of the game's items are created by the players using
a real time Crafting system. The map has more than 1000 km2 and 70
cities to be explored. Furthermore, the evolution system is not
based on closed classed, but rather on a system of skills,
attributes, factions and free and customizable mutations.
