25 th of June 2012. — NIKITA ONLINE makes an announcement on striking the partnership agreement with Twisted Tribe and release of the browser online game Nadirim through the GameXP Connect platform.
The developers of the free-to-play browser game Nadirim ( nd.gamexp.ru) from Hungarian Twisted Tribe studio have managed to create an authentic Arabian Nights atmosphere. Hand-drawn graphics and the original ethnic soundtrack fill the game with pure vividness of mid-eastern folklore.
The unique atmosphere of Arabian fantasy, vast seamless world stretching for over 20 000 game screens and fascinating plot are the trump features of Nadirim which make it rather dissimilar to the other browser-based projects.
Due to its strong PvP/PvE and captivating narrative Nadirim is likely to be favored by both MMO and traditional RPG fans. The balance is maintained mostly by the means of the well-developed quest system dividing the character’s log into three types of entries — those marked with red are plot-driven, they allow the user to learn the story and discover some new locations, while the ones outlined with blue or green are meant to give an opportunity of further character development.
There are three different character classes available in Nadirim — Sage, Rogue and Warrior. The main story goal is to stop the dreadful djinn Nadir from shutting down the Arabian Desert sun.
“Arabian fantasy is definitely not the background to be often found in online games. Western or if you will «western-style» mythology is a more common setting. And this speaks in favor of Nadirim,” states NIKITA ONLINE’s CEO Stepan Zotov. “We are glad to find such a talented and dedicated game developer as Twisted Tribe. Nadirim is a project capable of surprising people and we are sure our users will be enjoyably surprised.”
Before its official release in English Nadirim was placed second in Most Anticipated category of the Best Browser Games of the Year 2010 contest by BBG site. MMOSITE readers also placed Nadirim among the most anticipated MMO games of 2011 — Nadirim was the only browser-based project in the Top 10 list.
“On seeing how suddenly well the original English version was acclaimed by the Russian-speaking users we came to the idea of publishing Nadirim in Russian. Then it was all about finding a local partner,” says Twisted Tribe’s CEO Sip o cz Bal a zs. “NIKITA ONLINE appeared to be the first company to pick our attention. As it turned out later we independently sent mutual business proposals almost at the same time. No matter if it was destiny or just a funny coincidence I’m sure GameXP Connect will make it possible for the Russian-speaking users to enjoy and appreciate our game.”
GameXP Connect will grant Nadirim an opportunity to reach fast-growing audience of the entertainment web-portal GameXP (which today exceeds 8 million) as well as utilize an extensive set of advanced services from voice chat to 24/7 support team.
