DOFUS 2.0 Media Tour
French, strategy-based, graphically-upgraded MMORPG. Need we say more? If so, read this article.

When I first saw press materials for Ankama Studios' strategy-based MMORPG DOFUS five years ago, I was fairly impressed. But when I played the game itself, it was lacking some "oomph." Particularly, the in-game graphics did not live up to the concept art. I guess that's what stopped me from really getting into it.

That all changed in December of 2009, when Ankama launched DOFUS 2.0. Ostensibly the same game, but with a more refined coding structure and impressive 2D graphics, I was instantly attracted. So I spent some time in the game, learning the ins and outs, and I'm back with a report for you. That'd be the first link below.

If you want to see for yourself the difference in quality, compare the image galleries for 1.0 and 2.0 by clicking the other links below. The concept art for the two games are shared, and you'll want to check that out too.

In the future, we'll be delving deeper into the world of DOFUS by checking out the game's soundtrack(s) and interviewing the French developers at Ankama Studios.
