Micro Forte Canberra developing Kwari

Company: 
News: 

It was announced last week that Kwari was a licensee for the BigWorld Tech for their online first person shooter. More news today from Worthplaying.com reveal that Kwari is actually a title that has been in development at Micro Forte Canberra since mid last year...

Steve Wang, Head of Studios for Micro Fort? commented, "We're really excited by the recent announcement of Kwari and even more so to announce our involvement in bringing this unique game title to the table."

"Working on Kwari has reinvigorated the act of making games for me, without sounding crass it really does represent a paradigm shift that is going to happen sooner or later in gaming whether we like it or not." said James Sutherland, Producer for Micro Fort?.

Kwari has an interesting subscription model of free-to-play / pay-to-shoot, and you'll be able to nab the free download when it's released later this year. If you're eager to check it out now, however, you can sign up for the beta test program, starting next week at www.kwari.com!

    You saying that it's using Unreal engine 2.5?

    Using older engines is a logical business decision for games like MMOs and money-makers like this. It means a wider player base.

    It looks good regardless.

    Is this pronounced "quarry" or qu-arr-ee?

    LOL...

    I meant that the game looks just like an Unreal game.

    Nah, don't think so.
    And you're right, it's good business sense, but it suffers on the visuals.

    That's one big a**'s shotgun lol. The bad thing is about this game is strange visual's.

    But really who gives a dam when you can run around with a shotgun that big.
