Exclusive interview with Jino Lee, lead producer of The Day
PC Games: Which game have your developers worked on before "The Day"?
Lee: Our developers consist of talented industry veterans with various PC MMO and console development experiences. The titles include massively popular MMORPG in Korea such as MU and lineage II(PC), Kingdom Under Fire : The Crusaders(Xbox), next-gen MMO such as Huxley and APB. We are all gathered to create next groundbreaking MMO yet to be seen on the market.
Lee: It was an obvious choice. With over 10 years of experience in making MMOG, we felt that we are finally ready to create the game which we always envisioned and dreamed of.
PC Games: What do you think is the advantage of the CryEngine2 for "The Day”?
Lee: Our first priority in searching for the right engine was how prepared the engine is to produce massive quantities of contents that we envision. After evaluating at least a couple dozen of engines on the market, CryEngine2 became a clear choice for our game having extensive tool features and efficient modularization for content production. Having top-notch graphics rendering capability was a huge plus. ;)
Lee: "Overwhelming Truth” and "Our story” are two core themes of the background story of Project The Day. As for "Overwhelming Truth” of it, the players will travel back and forth between past and future to find out what were the real truths were behind famous and mysterious historical events and places in the history. As for "Our Story”, we are creating a world that is believable, yet with exciting twists and immersion. The world of Project The Day will be based on what our happenings are, and what if it takes unexpected turns in the future.
PC Games: How many races will there be in "The Day" and which are playable?
Lee: Sorry we can't reveal this yet but surely will let you know soon.
