Oh! Our Great Empire Online Game!!

6 10 2012

This will be the next game Alfagame will release.

I have difficulty translating the title of the game…: 壯哉! 我大天朝网游!!
壯哉! is a majestic exclamation that is rarely used. I couldn’t find a word that is similar so I just use Oh!
天朝 is actually a term that the China netizens recently like to use to refer to China(mostly I see they refer to themselves) as a mockery or sarcastic term which is the meaning of “Empire” to mean China is still ancient and backwards.
网游 refers to Online Game in general but normally it points to the RPG type: MMORPG

The creator created this game to vent about the game making industry…in China.
From the pictures she posted in weibo, it seems to be you are a game investor and will be hiring workers(with different capability) and investing on different types of categories(RPG, FPS, visual novels etc…). It is a stat & money management of a game making company. I think it will be somewhat of an arcade game that goes on and on maybe until you bankrupt because it has a ‘highest record’ at the main menu.

See pictures here, no need to register:

The second screenshoot is about a project title and you have investment points that can be put into different categories like you’re making a Princess Maker project game for example and you have RPG, cultivation, music, social, racing, strategy, competition, action, FPS, gamble as categories to put your investment points in.

The last screenshoot is hiring workers. Shown there is a fresh graduate and show contract money(50 thousand) his evaluation by HR(not sure what is HR, maybe lecturer) which is he seems to want quick promotion, his stats(planning, coding, art, music all 30), his comment which is to make the best game.
