Project R1 is a new MMORPG by IMC Games which was founded by the so called Father of Ragnarok Online, Kim Hak Kyu. Due to the success of Ragnarok Online worldwide, Project R1 is being considered as one of the sequels to Ragnarok Online by some people in the gaming industry.

Project R1 is juts one of the game featured at Korea’s Hangame EX, which was held for the third time between May 13th and May 14th.
