Vanguard: Interview @ Mondes Persistants

The Vanguard: Saga of Heroes team answer a few questions over at Mondes Persistant. Here's a snippet from the English translation of the article:<blockquote><em><b>Mondes Persistant</b>: 1) (April) In your background, we have noticed that you have worked on the European market, youa "!ve been working for Ryzom, which is much known here in France. What did you learn from this experience and what is your opinion on the European market and its dynamism.<br><br><b>April Jones (Sr. Manager of Marketing & PR, Sigil)</b>: I worked in Norway for 3 years, some of that with Funcom working on Anarchy Online, and some of that with my own consulting company, Arctic Light. My consulting company was lucky enough to win the contract for helping promote Saga of Ryzom in the Nordic Region. It was a fantastic experience! French developers are known for their visual flair and Nevrax certainly lived up to that expectation with Ryzom. What a beautiful game!<br><br>My opinion about the European market in general is that it is far too often underestimated by many North American marketing and PR professionals. There are very robust gaming communities throughout Europe and I was surprised to learn about broadband connectivity and the fact that many countries are actually more connected to modern technologies than Americans &#61514;. SMS is a great example. In Norway, I could do my taxes by SMS and my bills were all handled electronically by my bank. In the US, Ia "!m still writing paper checks for most of my bills, although more places are slowly making it easier to pay online. We are really behind many parts of the world on that front. So, my time living in Europe opened my eyes to the fact that there are a whole lot of tech-savvy gamers out there craving information about video gamesa and theya "!re just across the ocean from us.</em></blockquote><a href="http://vanguard.mondespersistants.com/articles-0-188/Internationalisationenglish/" target="_blank">More...</a>
