This game is based on the Chinese Monkey King myth which has been done about a million times already, but I don't think there is a modern adaptation in video games (I could be wrong). The story itself is pretty cool/fun (shape shifting monk(?) with super strength, speed and magic like abilities), IMO it would make a great game.

The gameplay looks very good. No idea if it will see a Western release, but considering western sites like IGN are covering it I would guess so. Maybe Epic store exclusive considering the Chinese money invested in Epic.

Looks pretty interesting and not like anything I played recently.

I saw a Chinese city builder game the other day that also looked different from the norm.

I watched a bit of the gameplay, and it certainly seems interesting. But I guess I'm not sure what the objectives are or what sort of gameplay loop we'll have.

I've been seeing some interesting games coming out of China lately. I made a thread on Gunfire Reborn recently, and I'm pretty sure that game is being developed in China. Although, speaking of that game, it has a lot of Japanese influence in its monsters and such... but maybe that's more about the shared culture between a few of the Asian states.

Can you share the link on that site?

Do you mean a link to my thread on Gunfire Reborn? You can see that here. It is a little bit out of date by this point as they've added a new character to play as since I posted that update as well as a new difficulty level.

Ah my bad, I thought Gunfire Reborn was another forum, I had no idea it was a game :)

That game has really beautiful art like graphics and the gameplay is obviously pretty unique. I'll have to check it out more.

I would like to see more RPG elements in all aspects of it's gameplay, from building a character to building some base, like home fortress? It's awesome, when game developers care about feedback reviews from the players. It's because players know for sure what exact features would work in specific situations and specific levels of the game. And of course, if your dev team don't know how to implement any feature into the game, maybe you should consider about asking someone else, from different game dev team? I've heard a lot of positive reviews about iLogos and their solutions and offerings of outsourcing in game industry. I've seen a lot of examples of great game projects all over the web, but their successful cases - maybe the best ones. Game art, enhancements of gameplay process, porting PC versions of games to web-versions - they can do literally everything in the sphere of game dev.
