A few days ago, I chatted with everyone about the Heluo Studio, which I like very much, and their comeback work “The Legend of the Knight”. In the article, I also mentioned that the majority of players (actually mainly write about myself) really want to Play an open world martial arts game similar to the real-time combat mechanism of “The Witcher III” or “Assassin’s Creed”.
However, the martial arts works of Heluo Studio, whether it is “The Legend of the Knight” or the prequel “The Legend of the Knight”, or the “Legend of Heluo”, which explores the high-degree-of-freedom sandbox game of Wuxia, and the story of Heluo. The latest work “Xia Ying Ge” (now renamed “Xia Zhi Dao”), the battle mode adopts the six-sided battle flag mode. The battle flag mode can well show every move in the martial arts battle. It can be outputted through excellent (coquettish) positions. According to the different abilities of each character, multiplayer battles can be arranged in battle. Give full play to your strengths.
However, martial arts games are not the only way of expression of war chess. The former domestic game light “Sword Sealing Demon Record”, and our protagonist “Fate of Heaven” have adopted the method of real-time combat.
So not much to say, I will chat with the master reader today about the game “Fate of Heaven”.
Real estate company makes games
Every time you introduce a game, you must start with his publisher.
When the players opened the Steam store page of “Fate of Heaven”, everyone saw the name of a very unfamiliar developer: Jiashanlin Entertainment Co., Ltd. The developers of this particularly well-received game are not familiar domestic stand-alone game vendors such as Daewoo and Candle Dragon that we are familiar with.
When players search for this company on a search engine, everyone will see the following picture:
Real estate company? The developer is a cross-border real estate company, and the game’s project is mainly because the boss has a martial arts dream…
Then take a look at the official introduction in the game: the player will become the “man of destiny”, shouldering the blood of the world and the fate of the world. Wander through multiple main lines at will, challenge rewards and solve puzzles, get to know confidantes, and learn martial arts from various schools. Each choice may subvert the destiny and create a wonderful multiple ending.
Whenever a domestic game has a “high degree of freedom” and “multiple main lines and multiple ending plots”, I will always feel a little imaginary. There are too many people selling dog meat these days. After all, “the greater the hope, the greater the disappointment.”
The picture is “cheap” but “changeable”
Open the game with a nervous heart. After opening the game, the most intuitive feeling is the game screen.
No matter from which point of view, the screen of “Destiny” cannot be described as “good”. After 5 minutes of entering the game, you can clearly feel that the production team is exuding a breath: “no money” all the time.
The number of modeling is pitiful, and the indoor scene layout and the modeling of small objects are extremely repetitive. Except for the main characters with names and surnames, the number of NPC modeling in the game will not exceed 15. What about the real estate companies that are said to be rich and oily?
But to be honest, the scene style in the process of “The Destiny of Heaven” itself is not repetitive. You can even feel in the game how the production team racked their brains to use limited art materials to design more diversified levels and scenes. You can also experience this kind of effort in the NPC layout of the town. The production team arbitrarily arranges actions or positions, modeling a few tasks and designing a very life-like NPC scene.
The complicated side task is a double-edged sword
In Kaifeng, Hangzhou, Luoyang and other places, there are hidden secrets waiting for you to discover. Of course, it is not about the development of the plot, but these secrets undoubtedly have great value potential. Some give gossip points, some give martial arts to learn the mind, and some give tricks to cheats. You don’t need these, just hit the BOSS directly. Are you afraid of letting others kill you? And most of the side missions in the game are launched in the mode of investigating, which greatly enriches the gameplay. In addition, there are 15 side missions in Novice Village, so I’ll ask you if you are hi~
When it comes to side missions, one has to talk about its unique systems and mechanisms. First of all, there is a very interesting mechanism in the game called Rumor.
What is a rumor? It means hearsay that the news from one person after another is sometimes reliable and sometimes outrageous, but ninety-nine percent of the game is reliable, and you don’t talk to your neighbors for some hidden tasks. Chat, never want to trigger. For example, a beggar in Hangzhou city begs along the street, and most people ignore it, but in the spirit of helping everyone and everyone for me, I rewarded him with 100 big money (I only have 2,000 yuan, which is a pain to cut love.) Up.)
From his mouth, I learned a piece of news: “The boss of this grocery store is a stubborn stubborn stubble. You can talk a few more days, and you may get another news.”
So, I followed the map to the Li’s grocery store (it seems to be Li, I’m sorry I can’t remember this), I found the shopkeeper, and kept talking to him, repeating, just when we were about to give up, he finally I missed my mouth and mentioned the important news that the pharmacy owner accidentally developed a good medicine, and the prescription still remembers. We finally found the owner of the pharmacy. After answering his three questions, he helped the owner remember what he wanted to eat, and he would share the prescription with us: Angelica + Squid Bone + Peppermint = Da Huan Dan.
This is a good medicine. It can nourish blood. Look, the origin of the recipe for the Great Huandan is actually a hearsay.
I personally like this rumor system very much. This is the world. There are opportunities everywhere, but it depends on whether you can seize this opportunity yourself. And the rewards are appropriate, and you have a bonus point. This is not much more interesting than the pure task of running errands in the traditional RPG? This system can really see the intentions of the production team and set up a separate language for most of the NPCs. Content, and generally have events that can be interacted with. Unlike many other games, NPC is an NPC, a tool to gather people and make up the screen, and it does not improve the gameplay.
Now that the side mission is a “double-edged sword”, let me talk about his shortcomings. This game puts almost all the main storyline follow-ups into the sidelines that can be done or not. The ending of the protagonist and the girls, the life and death of the main character, and even the protagonist’s own life experience can only find the answer in these branches.
And almost all of these branches require players to actively search for triggers, and some of them are extremely malicious. Unless you search for them purposefully, there is basically no way to trigger them. If you are really a “head iron brother”, regardless of these key branches, blindly brushing the main line, then in the end you will usher in the worst ending in a confused, helpless, and headless situation.
In addition, the complicated side quests have brought a burden to many players, and it is difficult for you to complete all the quests without looking at the strategy. For example, the task of eating noodles for a girl from Novice Village who just entered the village. I found the noodles but couldn’t find anyone. I also don’t know who the Kaifeng Mansion love letter is for. But I’m a gamer who doesn’t like to watch guides and wants to play with my heart and soul, so I often find it troublesome to go around.
Good combat experience and gorgeous martial arts
The battle in this game is definitely in your hands. Except for attacks, every martial arts has 7-8 moves. According to the sequence of moves, it is determined whether the ultimate ultimate move can be released. The moves are gorgeous and gorgeous. Cool, satisfy everyone’s martial arts dream. It’s very similar to the popular online games “Chu Liuxiang” and “Tianya Mingyue Knife”. The difference is that the moves here are better~
Take the marksmanship (long handle) obtained in the later side missions: the angry King Kong stick method as an example. It is so gorgeous and cool that there are no friends. No wonder you have to go to Shaolin Temple to steal things. Such a powerful martial arts school is a fool if you don’t learn it.
The golden stick method is based on the golden melody. The stick method covers: rush, serious injury, sweeping, full-screen coverage indiscriminate attack, high burst, etc. It is very powerful, and the full-screen indiscriminate attack is full of visual enjoyment. The demons descended into the world, smashing all the evil underground to pieces, and after a set of moves, he was shocked.
However, the combat system is not without flaws.
As a gossip system similar to a skill tree and rich mental methods, it can be said that the elements of martial arts are enough, but this system is not deep enough, and it is not worth the player’s time to study like martial arts moves. The effects of some mental methods are very tasteless. Although each improvement is written on the value panel after adding points, there is really no feedback experience except for the damage and blood deduction that can be seen for each shot.
The overall plot is plump and hard to hide the thinness of the main line
Generally speaking, the story of a game must first talk about the main line and then talk about the side lines. However, because the main line of “Destiny” is too thin, I even finished writing the combat mode before remembering: “I haven’t written the main line yet? ?”
On the whole, Tianming Qiyu is a game with an excellent plot. The main line and the branch line complement each other. Some hearsay rumors will help you better understand the roots and evils of Manichaeism. On the one hand, innocent villagers and escorts are brutally murdered; On the one hand, the residents of the city are still in awe of this cult. This kind of contrast is intolerable by a man of temperament. Show players a more real world.
In addition, part of the props in the game can be displayed, which means to show it to the NPC (Chengbutang: show you my lawyer badge~), and the ones that can trigger the task will automatically be displayed. Take Xiaoxi Village as an example. For an old man without clothes in the cool weather, we can hand over the worn-out cotton-padded clothes we found to the aunt for repair (right-click on the aunt and display the clothes in the inventory). , The old man was full of joy and gave us a piece of broken exercises as compensation (the introduction of the broken pages is very clearly written, some of the words on it have been blurred, and even eroded by the dog’s saliva, but still vaguely recognizable), and I don’t know this. Did the old man grab the broken pages from the dog’s mouth?
If you just look at the main storyline, the information you can get is really limited. On the contrary, the branch revealed more background stories and made up for a lot of missing information. The three heroines correspond to three directions, allowing the protagonist to understand the emperor of the current dynasty, the decay of the previous dynasty, and the three lives and three death drinks. The general framework is still there, but after all, there will be a lot of information that has not been explained.
As a new company with no development experience, this first stand-alone game is amazing. In any case, this game can be called a work of conscience. It’s better than some of the bells and whistles introduced, but in fact, it is golden and deceived. Cheating games are much stronger. Each player has a different experience when playing this game. The rich branches and the various types of martial arts can all create a martial arts world where joy, enmity, adventure and hardship coexist. I hope that more people can play this game and experience this happy and enmity martial arts world.
At the same time, there are some regrets in this game. Only the first chapter is dubbed, and there are obvious traces of rushing in the later plot. It should be the same as Gu Jiansan, so that the budget is not enough. The process is a bit shorter and may not be worth the original price, but 40-50 is definitely worth it. For a fan of martial arts games like me, I can only say blood earned when I bought more than 20 dollars (it is said that it dropped to 7 yuan some time ago!). Recently, 2 is about to come out. I will definitely continue to support a wave of real estate bosses’ single-machine dreams.
