Seven Quest, a massively multiplayer online game based on the 1,000 year old tales of Rostam and the Epic of the Kings, will release later this year.
Speaking to ArabicGamers, Dubai-based publisher Gameguise; working in collaboration with Falafel Games, gave us a glimpse of some of The Shahnameh artwork we can expect to see in the game.
ArabicGamers was given some of the exclusive Art work for the mythological hero, Rostam; the symbol of the Iranian hero who conquers all evil, whom players will assume his role to fight off mythological creatures such as a three-headed dog, or a 10-headed snake. Exclusive Art work can be seen at the end of the article.
