PAX 10: Wakfu interview gets teen girls feeling fantastic

2:20 PM on 09.09.2010 // Jonathan Holmes

I'd never heard of Wakfu until seconds before this interview. I did know a little about Dofus, Wakfu's prequel, but only because Niero has a Dofus art book on his coffee table. Other than that, I was flying blind on this one.

By the time the interview was over, I had developed a hearty affection for Wakfu. The art style reminds me of something from Vanillaware (Odin Sphere, Muramasa) while the gameplay felt a little like Final Fantasy Tactics on an MMORPG scale. I had less time with the XBLA title, Islands of Wakfu, but I still had fun with it.

We also invented a new word at the end. I wonder if it will catch on with Wakfu's small-but-dedicated group of teenage fangirls?
