Filipinos have always been fans of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG). The games are a fun escape from our daily mundane life: we go on quests, defeat foes, and earn rewards, all from our smartphones, computers, or laptops. It’s also thrilling and exciting to go to distant worlds that are so different from our own.
EGC Extreme Unreal Technology Inc., a Pangasinan-based studio, is changing that gaming landscape with Walk Online Mobile, the first 3D MMORPG set in the Philippines. In this game, you play a bio-engineered student gearing up for battles and quests in a world that’s familiar to our fellow Filipinos: a post-apocalyptic Metro Manila, the remaining haven for survivors of a catastrophic event that nearly wiped out humanity.
Chaos awaits in the streets and campuses in Metro Manila, where an evil force has taken over. You’ll find yourself gathering potion ingredients in Commonwealth Avenue or fighting bosses in KLAW Global City.
There are also genetically-modified beings and mystical creatures from Philippine folktales and legends that are yet to be explored every time you level up and join Special Events.
Filipinos in the international gaming arena
The idea of Walk Online Mobile came to Edizon Caragay, the Chief Executive Officer of EGC Extreme Unreal Technology Inc., while he was a university student in Quezon City.
“I wanted to show the players both the serious and quirky elements of the game especially those moments at school, in traffic, or at home,” he said.
The game’s setting proves to be crucial to his goal. “I aim to launch the country to the international gaming arena, and want my fellow Pinoys to know that we have a place in this industry, and we can make a name for ourselves right here in the Philippines.”
Walk Online Mobile also proudly has an all-Filipino development team.
Building a tight-knit community
Walk Online Mobile now has a tight-knit community of over 140,000 players. The game’s official Facebook page, which has over 31,000 followers, hosts special events and supports players. It even has an official Facebook group where its 28, 268 members can make friends, get gameplay tips, or scroll through hilarious memes.
If you’re looking for a new mobile game, we highly recommend diving into this world full of Philippine references. Walk Online Mobile is free to download on the Google Play Store and soon on App Store.
