Tynon is a turn-based fantasy social online game[1] developed by uCool Inc, which is partially made up of indie game developers formerly of Evony.[2]

Development[edit]

Tynon is uCool's first entry into the game market. The developers stated they wanted to create a separate independent studio and focus on a complex, hybrid style of game that is very different from other titles.[citation needed] The studio has at least 170 staff, and the game is flash based and played via a web browser. The game is to be distributed digitally as a DRM-free flash based game, initially for the Windows and Mac platforms.

The game was launched on July 26, 2012.[3]

Relaunch[edit]

Tynon went into a second closed beta that launched on May 20, 2013. The second closed beta ended on June 12, 2013 and the second incarnation of the game went live on June 13, 2013.[4]

Plot[edit]

The Dark Wizard Wyrm has somehow bewitched the king, leaving the land of Tynon in turmoil. Allies have become suspicious and an elite knight named Rosaline has taken up the quest to rescue the king and restore order. The lands continue to burn while wicked goblins roam free, serpent queens plague Verdant City, and the kingdom is threatened by disaster and slavery.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay involves tactical strategy, role-playing and social interaction. There are five main areas to the game: questing, arena, heroic realm, championship warfare and guild wars. The single-player campaign is the core of the game. The arena gives the player the opportunity to compete with friends and rivals, where player may challenge anyone up to five ranks above them on the arena ladder. The dungeon, unlocked when a player reaches level 35, allows a player to battle through a series of floors in order to earn virtue and diamond fragments. The campaign and arena progress are dependent on the build of the player's city, making it closely related to the other modes of play.

There are over one hundred levels and thirteen kingdoms available for players to explore on the campaign area for Tynon. As players progress through the campaign, they will have the opportunity to collect heroes which will be able to join their battles and offers further tactical and strategic decisions a player will have to make that directly impacts their progression.
