Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games have changed the way we play online forever – and Kyu Lee will explain how they are about to do the same for mobile gaming. Lee is President of GAMEVIL USA and has been with GAMEVIL since the beginning in 2000.

The company runs offices in Seoul, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Beijing, Singapore, Taipei, and Berlin. Lee has graduated Seoul National University with a B.S. in Physics and is also a board member of Com2us USA, Inc. In his devcom developer conference keynote “The Next Generation of Mobile MMO” on Monday, August 21, at 11am (stage [ddc2] Europasaal 1st Floor CONGRESS CENTRE EAST), Lee will illustrate how MMOs like Royal Blood are currently pushing the boundaries of technology and game design on mobile devices with AAA quality graphics, living worlds and player-interaction on a scale that has never been seen before. He gives an overview on the significance of true massive MMORPGs for the Asian and global market, and walks you through the challenges of developing a massive multiplayer world for mobile devices. With 100 vs. 100 multiplayer RvR battles and dynamic open-world events, Royal Blood is the perfect example to get you up to speed on this new frontier of mobile gaming.
