Well it seemed to work for Evony ....

Does Allod's onlines latest advertising campaign remind you of anything?


To be fair to Allods, they are using their own artwork in the ads, the image is taken from one of the game's splash screens I believe. Allods is even a pretty decent game despite their ham-fisted attempts at commercialising it. This campaign does smack of desperation though, doesn't it?

As with the cash shop prices that caused so much outrage they seem out of touch with their demographic.

It's probably great art for 14 year old boys. However if they looked at the Daedalus Project to see who plays MMOs they would discover that we're not actually all teenage boys.

That is actually a very good point Stabs. Its as if Allods was taken over by someone who doesn't know very much about the mmorpg business.

I've argued that for a while now. The *game* is pretty solid, if nothing earth-shattering, but the business side is flat out incompetent.

This was shown last week in the blog world, but I have yet to see an ACTUAL ad. I wonder if it's just a hoax?

It's real Anton. I saw this in the wild.
