"MapleSEA" is an alternate version of the popular virtual multiplayer game, "Maple Story." The "SEA" in MapleSEA represents "South East Asia", as MapleSEA itself is targeted for people living in Southeast Asia - although users living elsewhere have the option to create an account as well. MapleSEA also features special maps including Malaysia and Singapore - giving an interesting twist on the already familiar MapleStory. Playing MapleSEA is possible within minutes with Internet access and does not require buying software.
