Posted by Carter Dotson on March 21st, 2012

The Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) recently ran a competition in South Korea to help find some of the most intriguing upcoming titles from local developers, in order to help promote their gaming industry. Sixteen games were selected by the agency, and they will be released over the next 12 months, with titles being published by Gamevil and Com2us.

The first of these titles are Plants War, published by Gamevil, a strategy-RPG hybrid, and Cheese Please, a mousey puzzle game where players must try to eat the cheese in each maze, without dying from the many hazards present. The rest of the titles will range from arcade action titles like Dead City and KaTaNa. There's Fruit Rush, a colorful puzzler with daily missions, and Sir Real, a 3D action RPG that will use the Unreal Engine. Even a selection of MMO titles will be involved: Astro Wars, King of Pirates, and Fantasy War, along with some social games like Golden Menu, Little Wizard, and Aqua Story. These games were all selected to show off the talent of the Korean game industry, trying to turn the country into a top worldwide content creator.
