— First, please introduce yourself. What is your favorite game?
Mr. WOO GANG (WOO) Hello. This programmer and main game designer WOO GANG is WOO GANG.
I like a highly competitive game, and League of Legend and Heirs Stone are your favorite. League of Legend was quite excited (also played with the Faker of Korean Properer T1 Faker), Haas Stone in Standard Battle Ground Mercenaries mode 25 You may have entered within the ranking (1st page).
-Why did you start developing this work?
Milieu I have played a lot of competent games, so I know the height of the hurdles that starts playing newly more than anyone. Therefore, I would like to lower the hurdles by focusing on EVE instead of PVP, and I wanted to know more people with a fun genre called card game. As a result, the Defense game, which is one of the most popular genres in EVE, was combined with a card game.
— Please tell me the characteristics of this work.
The WOO card game is always facing the dilemma. There are few card types, and the game is not deep. However, if there are too many cards, there are too many players to know and hurdles will rise. In order to solve this, we distributed all cards for each 20 hero and made as many heroes as you like at one time. Players can use more complex strategies by adding more heroes and their cards after each round, making it a more complex strategy, and pick up the cards and pick up the enemies dropped items, It is also possible to continue using the first tactics.
— What kind of person do this work do you want to play?
I would like to play the WOO Defense game and all people who have played card games. Therefore, we have prepared normal mode and hard mode. If you are already familiar with the card game, you may feel easy to do this. But such people try to challenge the hard mode by all means. There is a challenge and I think I can enjoy it. In particular, it is step 10 in hard mode.
— Is there a work affected by this work?
WOO We are incorporating the Plants vs. Zombies layout. This work is a very famous and popular work, so some people may feel like a glance this work. Monsters and boss designs are referred to World of Warcraft. Also, the card is designed based on the experience of playing Magic: The Gathering.
— Did you have an impact on development by new coronavirus?
WOO Currently, we are working at a place away from Korean population dense areas. Therefore, the impact of new coronas is not so much, and we are all vaccinated.
— Is it okay to deliver and monetize this work?
WOO Of course. Our goal is to have more people around the world and have our games to share their strategy. Therefore, delivery on Twitch and video posts to YouTube are very welcome.
— Lastly, please give a message to the Japanese reader.
WOO Japan has a variety of card games, and there are many card gamers. The trading card game I played for the first time is Yu-Gi-Oh, so I intend to know the scale and depth of the Japanese card game market well. If you are interested in a real-time card game, please feel free to play this work. We promise that it is a game that has never been played so far!
