TOKYO – June 13, 2012 – NEXON Co., LTD. (“Nexon”) (3659.TO), a worldwide leader in free-to-play games, today announced that “Cloudstone,” a point-and-click, action roleplaying game, is now available in open beta on Facebook. Developed in conjunction with Los Angeles-based development studio Playsaurus, “Cloudstone” offers magical, mayhem-filled maps of lush new lands floating in the sky, where players can customize avatars to battle unique and colorful enemies.
To jump into the “Cloudstone” fray, players can go to: https://apps.facebook.com/cloudstone/.
“Cloudstone” offers three character classes, including the close-quarter fighting Warrior, ranged-attack Wizards, and the quick-healing Monk. Players can explore four different islands, where they will fight through up to a dozen dungeons. The dungeons are occupied by cute but deadly monsters, such as “bloops” “fat bats” and “mud balls.” Once defeated, these monsters drop gold and valuable items that can be traded in for gear upgrades. The dungeons can be replayed at different difficulty settings where the risks are higher, but the loot drops are more rewarding.
To customize their gaming experience, players can personalize their characters’ appearances by changing hairstyles and facial features, as well as selecting from a variety of armor designs and weapon types.
“Cloudstone” also offers an item shop, a practice area, a job board, and a tavern where players can socialize and exchange tales of their wild adventures.
The game’s point-and-click controls are intuitive and easy to master, and simple socializing features give players a quick way to add their friends to the adventures.
“Cloudstone” will be published by Nexon Korea and distributed globally in a joint effort with Hong Kong-based 6waves.
“Cloudstone” is Nexon’s fifth title on the Facebook platform. Facebook users can also enjoy Nexon titles “MapleStory Adventures” and “Zombie Misfits,” as well as “KartRider Dash” and “Zoo Invasion,” both of which entered open beta in May 2012.
