Asker Online is closing down next month

    
23

Well, that did not last long. Only months after launching, Asker Online announced that it is shutting down on March 22nd.

The action MMO featured elaborate dungeon crawls and boss fights and was positioned as a rival to Vindictus. Neowiz pushed the game through the beta stages last summer, although we hadn’t heard much about the game since then, suggesting that it didn’t make much of an impact in Korea.

Asker Online will join the funeral procession of several other overseas titles being shuttered this winter, including 9 Dragons and Gunslinger Stratos Reloaded.

Greaterdivinity Dystopiq I’m really not sure I’d call the MMO market healthy atm.  I believe (or hope) it will come back stronger than it has ever been but that’s completely up to the game developers.  Someone will nail it again but I have no idea when.

Greaterdivinity it wasn’t a broom actually, she rode around on her giant hammer. She looked like she was straight up out of a korean horror movie tho, so there was that

Damn, I never got a chance to try it, but was looking forward to it. The combat looked pretty smooth, like Vindictus. The destructible environment was also a neat feature. I wonder if it was too much like Vindictus and people just didn’t see why they should switch. Does anybody know what sucked so much about it?

Shame, I had at least wanted to try it since it looked like an upgraded version of C9.

I kept getting it mixed up with Bless … I am really surprised that they are shutting it down: it was a lobby based hack and slash; how much could it possibly have cost to keep open?

Dystopiq This would actually be called deflation, not bursting. Deflation is good, because it helps prevent bursting. Games closing down or failing right out of the gate alongside games that continue to thrive years on or that have successful launches are all part of a healthy market
