Dofus reaches 10 million players

Flash-based cartoon MMO a charmer.

Ankama Games has said more than 10 million people are playing attractive Flash MMO Dofus.

Mind you, only 1.5 million are paying subscribers. But at GBP 3.90 a month that still turns a tidy profit.

We're not surprised at its popularity; not after Dofus charmed an 8/10 out of us for its heady concoction of cartoon visuals, strategical combat, vegetarian shoes and flower necklaces.

But Ankama seems be trying to shake this welcoming image, by recently unveiling a special Heroic server with eye-opening rules like permanent death.

Dofus is also to get an MMO sequel in Wakfu, which is currently in beta testing.
