Nexon signs agreement with KMGA to help local game developers
Nexon signed an agreement with the Korea Mobile Game Association (KMGA) to help local game developers make games using its upcoming metaverse platform Project MOD, the company said Tuesday.
Project MOD is a metaverse service under development by Nexon, aiming to become Korea’s Minecraft and Roblox.
It will allow users to make user-generated content (UGC), which refers to content created by users like YouTube videos and Wiki texts.
The service lets users make use of the graphic resources from Nexon’s popular MapleStory game franchise to make their own content for free.
Through the agreement, Nexon will help local game makers to use Project MOD in a more detailed way through a programming language called Lua. More detailed programs will be revealed soon, Nexon said.
“We hope this partnership leads to not only young talented developers to fulfill their dreams but a healthy content industry as a whole,” said the KMGA in a statement.
Project MOD is currently under development. Its official release date has not been set.
