Revelation Online’s Ever, Jane sensibilities

MMORPG import Revelation Online is taking appearances seriously. “Revelation Online offers a complete character creation system,” explains in a fresh dev blog out today. “Players can select their appearance, body type, costume, accessories, headgear, and voice based on their own personal tastes. You can also select the colour, material, and patterns of their clothes. In addition, there are different styles of wings and mounts to choose from.” Critically, “this all allows you to be able to tell who that lady holding the umbrella on the Sulan Bridge is from over a hundred meters away and allows you to say to others: Look now, I shall defend that person with my life.” This game gets it.

The dev blog also tackles the game’s battle system, character growth, companionship, and which skills will help you pick up chicks.

“We provide fairness in the game and want all players to be able to grow happily and freely in Revelation Online. The MMO world is a simulated world as well a realistic world. We make friends here, fall in love here and reach milestones that can inspire others. Tears don’t come from frustration and failure, or injustice and suffering. They come from past experiences. They allow us to remember that it’s not that hideous, realistic monster that does it, but the fact that we can laugh and take pictures even when our team is slain. Perhaps, growth in a game is fleeting, but it can move the player enough so that they remember it for years later. Growth and companionship is the most moving part of an MMO game.”

Also, “if your Grace level is high enough, the maids at the inn might pay more attention to you.” This is the first thing you should do when the game launches, obviously.
