1. GHOST X

The world view of GhostX is based on the modern city. A multi-national military experiment resulted in opening the gate of the Spectral Realm. And from the opened gate, Nanobots appear with other monsters. The game character and the Nanobots fight and destroy the monsters together. Of course, the Nanobots are considered as a monster, but it's a good kind. I took the ideas from cartoons which showed monsters with three eyes. I thought the monsters would be more emphasized if they came out from buildings or subways. (Laugh) The monsters in Ghost X doesn't look like the general monsters that we know about, it looks more like a monster with a modern appearance.

2. METIN 2

Metin2 is an oriental fantasy 3D MMORPG with realistic battles where you can defeat a bunch of monsters with a single sweep, giving you a thrilling sensation.
