MapleStory is a well known massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), with over 40 million users registered worldwide.
This cross-platform CD ROM was the first in a two-part initiative to introduce an iTrading Card Game (iTCG) ('a real-world Trading Card Game with codes redeemable for exclusive virtual-world game content') based on the MMORPG and developed by Wizards of the Coast.
The CD contained an interactive Flash application (reproduced here as a web-only product) that served as a navigation shell for the disc content, as well as providing a searchable list of the game's initial cards.
To reach the widest possible audience, the CD was produced as a full-featured, cross-platform product. It included native icons for the Windows and Macintosh operating systems, a Mac Finder window image (seen here), a Windows autoloader, and OS dependent directories to make only the relevant content visible to a user.
In development of this product, I not only served as the primary Flash developer (working closely with Toshiko Okumura, a very talented artist), but I also lead the disc production efforts as well, and even mastered the final product.
When the iTCG was released, the second part of the initiative went active, with a web site that delivered special codes. Some information on the site can be found in the Web section, here.
