Developer Rigem Works has announced a classical MMORPG called The Herb, which will apparently offer a "spellbinding storyline, a variety of PvE events, ranked PvP, robust guilds system, Pets & Mount system as well as a deep social element."
Rigem Works is an independent studio founded by siblings Emese and Sylvester Amal and based in Potsdam, Germany. There are five total developers at Rigem Works, which certainly makes developing a classical MMORPG an ambitious enterprise. Emese Antal had this to say about their newly announced title:
When we were children, we had a lot of disputes, today are we the best colleagues, because we share the same goals. We are working in the multimedia sector for more than 20 years. During our career we have delivered over 40 software products, from chat functions to VR, AR applications, educational software for schools, and multiplayer games.
The game itself is based upon a quest reward system where players will supposedly uncover "long-forgotten secrets" and learn magician's recipes that will help them learn and develop their growing skills. Players will also be able to collect different herbs and create elixirs that will give them unique skills, which definitely sounds fairly interesting at least.
The game takes place on Gondwana, which is one of the oldest planets in the universe of Argatica. It is also the only place where rare and valuable herbs can be found that will enhance player abilities. The player plays as someone who is a member of a secret organization who are trying to save the planet from... something. We'll find out later, I guess.
