During the recent Game Developer's Conference, we had the opportunity to check out Continent of the Ninth Seal (C9), a game that is squarely on many people's radar. See what we discovered and then let us know what you think.
Continent of the Ninth Seal is hub-based dungeon MMO along the lines of Dragon Nest or Vindictus. Players can select from three archetypes: Fighter, Hunter, and Assassin, each with three sub-classes. C9 does not use your typical MMO tab-targeting system, but instead opts for more FPS-like controls. If something is in range of your weapon, chances are you’ll hit it. The game makes use of a combo system and skilled players will be able to string together some Tekken-like juggling combos.
