Aeria Games, the publisher behind BigWorld-Powered Realm of the Titans and Kingdom Heroes Online, just released their new Aeria Ignite game platform.

Ignite allows you to launch all of your Aeria games from one location under a single Aeria Games account, as well as download new games and play browser-based titles. This platform not only streamlines your gaming accessibility, but also adds in plenty of social features. Like Valve’s Steam, you can view what games your friends are playing, as well as message them through the integrated chat system.

Here’s all of the features that accompany the Aeria Ignite platform.

If you’re getting a case of deja vu while reading this, it might be because Wargaming.net just announced a similar platform at this year’s E3 (video). Like Ignite, it will allow you to keep all of Wargaming.net’s BigWorld-Powered titles under the same account and launch them from a central location. Our extensive blog post on the announcement can be seen here.

Around the time of this announcement there was some discussion in the World of Tanks and Warplanes forums about how if this “Universal Game Platform” will become a standard among MMO developers. Considering these two leading MMO companies are backing this kind of unified game system for their titles, there is a pretty big chance that this will become common practice in the industry.

Wargaming.net’s Universal Game Platform has not yet been released, but Aeria’s Ignite is up and ready for you to try out. Just download it here and play some Realm of the Titans!

BigWorld-Powered “Moego”: Cats

from the kitty cat man dept.

Continuing our exclusive coverage of the recently-announced, BigWorld-Powered, Userjoy MMO “Moego,” it’s on to the cat pet. It’s becoming increasingly clear, with each passing video, that the order of things in Moego tend toward: player joins/creates family, recruits various animal castles, which then release pets of the same animal type out of the gigantic building on their back. It looks like the animals and animal castles come out to fight… but, what we can say for sure is that this little guy carries a pipe and/or large ladle… which endears him to us greatly.

In Moego, once players have joined or created families, they are able to begin recruiting and raising pets. These furry little cuties, whose titles include “crispy sheep” and “fancy raccoon,” act as your personal posse, laying down adorable pain on your adversaries. Each pet is upgradable, and also has a unique crafting and item upgrade ability, so progression through the game will largely depend on your pet platoon.

MOEGO is a “community-centered free-to-play MMORPG,” with all the expected accoutrement, as well as some very unique offerings in the MMO space. These include family groups, “animal castles,” pet armies, and a few others.

BigWorld-Powered “Moego”: CRISPY SHEEP

Continuing our exclusive coverage of the recently-announced, BigWorld-Powered, Userjoy MMO “Moego,” we’ll take a little-bo-peek (unavoidable, sorry) at another acquirable pet: CRISPY SHEEP. We’re still not entirely clear on the meaning behind this little buddy’s name, nor are we totally clear on the “100%” bib that he/she is born wearing, but we love it. The video below showcases pet upgrading pretty well.

BigWorld-Powered “Moego”: Swordsman & Soulkeeper Classes

from the animal castle dept.

Continuing our exclusive coverage of the recently-announced, BigWorld-Powered, Userjoy MMO “Moego,” here’s a couple more character classes: The Swordsman, y El Soulkeeper. A note on aesthetics: we’ve enjoyed the contrast of simple, strong tones on world assets, which provide a nice, clean canvas upon which characters in increasingly complex and awesomely-designed garb can run around doing their thing. We think this video exemplifies this pretty well.

BigWorld-Powered “Moego”: a rabbit… as a pet

Continuing our exclusive coverage of the recently-announced, BigWorld-Powered, Userjoy MMO “Moego,” another look shall be had the legions of animal pets that the player will acquire through the course of the game. This time, it’s a Rabbit. We’re extrapolating here that the now-infamous animal castles (building-sized animals with buildings on their backs) are the source of pets in Moego. This is depicted in the video below, wherein a gigantic rabbit animal castle basically poofs a new rabbit in front of the bowing player character.

BigWorld-Powered “Moego”: Monk & Priest Classes

Continuing our exclusive coverage of the recently-announced, BigWorld-Powered, Userjoy MMO “Moego,” we’ll peek at two character classes: The Monk, and Le Priest . Comprising the more spiritual side of the character class array, these short video overviews demonstrate some of the unique abilities and tendencies that these two exhibit. Our particular favorite, visible below, is the massive flying fist of doom that the monk throws around with reckless abandon… or is it controlled abandon? Do or do not, there is no try.

Continuing our exclusive coverage of the recently-announced, BigWorld-Powered, Userjoy MMO “Moego,” it’s time for our first look at one of the key ingredients of the game’s unique hyperbolized world: PETS. In particular, you’ll find a video below featuring Dog… who is apparently a crack shot in a gentleman’s duel.
