MapleStory is one of the world’s most popular free-to-play online games. When it came time to advertise a new set of character classes, Nexon’s creative video maven, Luis Reyes, challenged us to take a different approach than just unleashing some flashy animation (although that’s certainly cool too!)
So… what if these new characters had to actually audition for the job? How would they handle the casting process? Hilarity ensues. And violence. Make that hilarious violence. And a giant walking robot.
