Summary: Islands of Wakfu is an adventure/beat-'em-up game that can be played by two players in team mode. It reveals never-before-seen background content from the world of Ankama casual MMO titles DOFUS and Wakfu.
Excerpt: Wakfu is cute. Wakfu is ridiculously, unapologetically cute. Wakfu is so cute, it could probably overdose you were it possible to do so via a computer screen. With its lush, watercolor visuals, Ankama's sophomore production looks more like the love child of Disney and Studio Ghibli than it does your average MMO. Filled with a menagerie of fluffy animals and a landscape that would fit right in a pop-up storybook, Wakfu could easily be mistaken for a children's game.
Conclusion: Still, the game is coming along marvelously for a beta. Fans of Dofus should find Wakfu to be a suitable follow-up, and newcomers will be impressed by all of the new elements it brings to the world of MMOs. Not only does the combat system introduce a level of tactics that most games don't have, but Wakfu has a unique aesthetic and an amazing ecosystem that responds to the behavior of human players. This is an ambitious project, and I can't wait to see where it goes.
Excerpt: Good news for all DOFUS fans and fans of free stuff, Ankama has just announced its long awaited sequel WAKFU will enter open beta on the 27th April being free to all players. WAKFU is the sequel to DOFUS and takes place around a millennium after the original, still based in the World of Twelve and utilising some sumptuous isometric 2D graphics, Ankama has been able to reinvent the game world creating entirely new adventures.
