Leading online games publisher, NGames, has today announced the introduction of Numen; a new player companion feature; to magical free-to-play web MMORPG, Tales of Laputa.
Currently in open beta on the Game321.com online games portal, Tales of Laputa combines RPG gameplay with classic anime elements and thrusts players into a brave new world where magic and machinery coexist, and the threat of demonic invasions is an ever-present danger.
Born from a mysterious egg, Numen are magical spirits gifted to level 30+ adventurers as a special thank you for helping to protect the City of Sky. Numen float around players at all times, enhancing their journey with mystical effects that take advantage of the lastest browser-based gaming technologies. But Numen are more than just an aesthetic treat - they also come with their own attributes, which are added to the attributes of their masters to bolster their current attack and defense capabilities.
Players can nurture their Numen through nine stages of growth, each growth stage unlocking a new look, increased attributes and exciting new stats to benefit the Numen and its master.
Growth stages require 10 stars before they can be upgraded, which adventurers purchase by exchanging the gold and Ingots (Tales of Laputa's currency) earned by completing Laputa's many exciting dungeons, quests, and special events.
Numen are highly customisable. Players can determine which attributes receive the most growth, depending on whether they upgrade using gold or Ingots; and they also have complete control over the avatar the Numen embodies. Plucky adventurers should mould their Numen into a magical creature that truly complements their character's existing abilities and style.
When Numen reach the full 10 stars of their current growth stage, players must break the bloodline barrier using Souls to unlock the next stage. Souls can be obtained by hunting; free hunting chances are handed out on a daily basis' and adventurers can choose to spend Ingots on more hunting attempts if they wish to advance their Numen at a faster rate.
The level of the Souls used must match the level of the Numen in order to be eligible for advancement, so any adventurer with a stockpile of low-level Souls should consider synthesizing them into higher level Souls to help with their Numen progression.
Nurturing Numen is no easy task – attempts at increasing a Numen's level can fail and any spent souls will be not be returned - but the effort is far outweighed by the benefits of always having the mystical companion floating nearby.
New avatars are unlocked as the Numen progresses through its growth stages, while players exploring Tales of Laputa's vast in-game world might even find some unique Numen Avatars of their own.
With six varied and exciting classes to choose from and a plethora of items and equipment to customize characters, there is something for every player in Tales of Laputa. Interested gamers can visit the Tales of Laputa official website and play for free now: http://bit.ly/152Q2C4
