Default Scroll of Taiwu - #2 steam bestseller

September 21st, 2018, 18:17
It's in early access and you've never heard about it before.

https://www.pcgamesn.com/scroll-of-t…of-taiwu-steam
The second best-selling game on Steam is an early access indie game that isn’t available in English, reflecting the platform’s enormous rise in popularity among Chinese users. Scroll of Taiwu, which released yesterday, “is an indie game based on Chinese mythology and Wuxia tales,” and does not offer English language support across its interface, audio, or subtitles.
It's RPG/strategy hybrid. Do please visit it's steam page and look at it, can something feel more exotic than this?

What to do? Learn chinese or wait for translation? Or, easiest solution, follow Trump and pretend it doesn't exist?

I'll pass thank you but I have bought a few translated or subbed RPG/SRPGs games off steam before. Maybe if they did a good job on English subs I might buy it.

For all that's holy don't do Engrish as most translations turn out.

Quick Update here are the three games I bought.

The Gate of Firmament - https://store.steampowered.com/app/4…_of_Firmament/
The “Xuan-Yuan Sword” is an epic oriental RPG series with 25 years of history.It elaborates on the very heart of this series, the idea of "one, looking at the same thing from different angles, may come to different conclusions. " through a variety of historical incidents in different times.
Tale of Wuxia - https://store.steampowered.com/app/3…Tale_of_Wuxia/
Tale of Wuxia is a role-playing and single-player PC game, made by Phoenix Games and Heluo Studio. Added lots of new stories, gameplays and systems, it is a new version of Legends of the Wulin. The game engine used by Tale of Wuxia is U3D.

Tale of Wuxia has been dedicated to providing gameplayers with a player-defined platform, where they can customize their own Wuxia. Instead of being restricted to characters’ basic properties and martial arts, in this new version, gameplayers can also choose the personalities and talents of their own. The new talent system makes characters more distinctive. For example, the hard workers are good at monotonous missions, the slyboots prefer changeable missions, while the jade trees are more popular among girls. Different talents come with different gameplays, greatly increasing the fun in playing.
Tale of Wuxia Pre-Sequel - https://store.steampowered.com/app/6…The_PreSequel/
Tale of Wuxia: The Pre-Sequel, the authentic sequel of Tale of Wuxia which surpasses the latter in every way, is a CRPG developed by Fenghuang Game and Heluo Studio. This U3D-based game includes better story, funnier events and enhanced gameplay. Tale of Wuxia: The Pre-Sequel enriched the character development in Martial Arts and skill variance. Your character can not only learn Arts itself, but also invite multiple members into the squad and select their skills. The brand-new Squad-combat Mode and Jianghu Tales Mode randomize the gameplay, different squad-members and talents grant you various tactics.

Simple : Because there are so many Chinese people in the world.

Wuxi is in fact a Chinese town. In the booklet of "The Project That Never Was" by Eric Woolfson, the other half of The Alan Parsons Project, he wrote that Wuxia means nowadays "no tin town", because there was once tin, but the mines are empty now (my words).
My home town has a "twin town" thing with Wuxi.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuxi
Wuxia seems to me a term on its own : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuxia
Wiwaxia, however, is one strange animal (?) from the famous Burgess Shale . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiwaxia
