The global pandemic forced many conventions and exhibitions to find alternative ways to bring their experiences to the people. The MAG, a convention for Manga, Anime, Cosplay & Fashion from Erfurt, went ahead and created a full free-to-play MMO experience for their 2020 edition.
Building on the X5 framework developed for the Indie Arena Both Online we created a free-to-play MMO version of the convention. The players where free to explore the different thematic exhibition “lands”, such as games, fashion, boardgames or artists. You could meet NPCs and real players, check out booths, watch streams and collect trading cards by exploring every corner of the world (sometimes even outside of it).
