from the mech mount dept.
Carey Chico (formerly of Pandemic & Activision) is the President & CCO of China-based GlobeX Studios. The company has been developing Secret Kingdoms Online, a free-to-play MMO that focuses on collecting and upgrading combat mounts.
In this video interview on GamerLive.tv, Carey discusses the free-to-play movement, the need for adaptable distribution methods, the game itself, and the studio’s vision. (The video is from E3 2010, but we’d never shared it before).
Secret Kingdoms Online is currently in closed beta.
