We've had an interesting past several weeks, to say the least, and it has us rethinking re-approaching and fine-tuning Shuyan Saga to meet the interests of a fanbase we didn't know we had.

Shuyan Saga went live on Steam Greenlight in mid-November, and something unexpect...

The UI is a big thing we've been trying to get right. The idea we're going for is to make it as simple as possible, make it as easy to use as possible, and still try to keep it in-line with the overall style. We've changed it around a few times now, and I think we're g...

We've been working on the "Focus" combat system this week, where Shuyan goes 1v1 with an enemy, as opposed to the "Arena" combat mode where she takes on groups. We're developing it sort of like a real-time version of the quick-time sequences you'll find in some games....

One thing we're trying to create with Shuyan is a sense that you're in a world rich with culture and history. We want characters with depth and we want a story that's memorable. To reach these goals, we decided to pull the inspiration for Shuyan from ancient Chinese hi...

Shuyan follows the story of a princess who loses her home, loses her family, and has to sacrifice everything to save the world. To accomplish this, she needs to seek out Kung Fu masters, and perfect their arts.

Shuyan is a story-driven kung-fu action graphic novel, which is told through a blend of comic book narrative cutscenes where readers make dramatic choices, and 3D action scenes with an in-depth combat system.
