And more older Sword and Fairy games coming to Steam. Chinese only of course.
This one looks pretty cool, but no English translation. If someone told me that the game was made by Helup Studio, I'd believe them based on the Steam trailers.
I remember there was a time where everyone online in Chinese forum complain about how shitty and lack of improvement Chinese RPG games were. during 90s.I've spent the last weeks looking into the history of Chinese RPGs, was quite shocked at how there's barely anything about them in English... so I prepared a very basic article with an overall timeline and the most relevant titles: https://felipepepe.medium.com/before-genshin-impact-a-brief-history-of-chinese-rpgs-bc962fc29908
The point is not to go in-depth on specific titles, just to serve as an introduction to people who never heard of a single Chinese game. If anyone has some insight or feedback to offer, I'm all ears.
