MapleStory Adventures [Closed Beta]
I didn’t notice the announcement made nor have I heard anybody freaking out about it. I just figured it out last night, so I’m sorry if I’m late. The registrations for the closed beta are closed for now, but I’ll keep you updated in case they open them again~ Oh and don’t worry, there’s another way you can play it (just read on).
So what is it?
It’s a version of MapleStory for Facebook. This version is a flash game with a much simpler interface and lets you connect with other players on Facebook. Instead of playing FarmVille on Facebook all day, you’ll be playing MapleStory! So I’m guessing it’s like the MapleStory Thief Edition iPhone app, except this one allows you to connect with other players instead of being all by yourself.
“Expanding our global IPs into the social and mobile gaming space is a watershed moment in Nexon’s global expansion efforts, not only will this move provide new ways for hundreds of millions of fans worldwide to experience Nexon’s games, it allows Nexon the opportunity to prove the robustness of its business model on new platforms.” -Daniel Kim, Nexon America CEO
How do I play it?
It is currently in the beta phases and the closed beta is about to launch on June 16th. You cannot register anymore, but just to upset you even more, I’ll tell you how simple the registration was; take a survey and get the keys. Each person will get 5 keys so he can recruit his friends also. You will need those keys to access the closed beta.
The Facebook page is not up anymore and it will only be up on June 16th. On that day, click on the “Go To App” button next to the “Like” button on that page and enter your key. You will then register your Facebook account to the Open Beta.
For now, just worry about getting your key. Remember that each person gets 4 extra ones that they don’t need anyway so it shouldn’t be too hard. REMEMBER, ask NICELY. Don’t annoy the heck out of them because they won’t give it to you. Be nice and they will be happy to give it to you.
What about the real version?
We don’t know yet. The only information out is about the Open Beta. I can’t tell you much aside from that.
If I get a key and I start playing, I’ll definitely make a video about it. If not, well, I’ll find one.
Off-topic but I remade my animation program. It’s still ‘beta,’ the animations are still kind of off so I’m not making the animations yet. I’ll be sure to have them when the class is released in KMS…
Well, this is it for today. Wow, I blogged for 4 days consecutively… I’ll start taking little breaks in between posts from now on.
And hey, who knows? Maybe this game might actually be more fun than the actual MapleStory? We shall find out in five days…
UPDATE: The website is back on! Instructions~
