IMC Games Renamed Project R1 to Tree of Savior

NHN Entertainment (old publisher, new publisher unknown) announced that IMC Games has renamed “Project R1” as “Tree of Savior”.  It took approximately 12 days for IMC Games to find the name. The focal point of the game will be the spirit of the forest, the “savior tree”.

The game features a 2D character in a 3D environment in an isometric view of the surrounding, differentiating Tree of Savior from most 3D MMORPG games. This decision to create a 2.5D was pushed by the depreciating attention on 3D games. So one day the developer said “Let’s make a 2D game that highlights the attractiveness of the game”.

“Project R1” has undergone four years of development. Most of the basic contents has been developed and right now the developers are refining the game. CBT is expected to begin at the second half of this year.
