DOFUS is a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. Being a mixture of video game and interactive animated cartoon, DOFUS brings a new concept within online games.
Since the precious DOFUS disappeared, the province of Amakna is in turmoil but not without any reason! Indeed, the extraordinary powers contained in these magic dragon eggs start to arouse the greatest covetousnesses, and the cities of Bonta and Brakmar are already confronting each other.
Yet, an even more fearsome threat seems to hang over Amakna. Strange creatures suddenly appear in an already lush flora and fauna, and lands appear in places where there used to be absolutely nothing. But, no matter where they come from, their motives or the events going on, all the adventurers have one single aim: lay hands on the six precious DOFUS.
An amazing and amusing world
With its colourful 2-Dimensional graphics and mischievous legends, DOFUS is an unusual video game.
