Shuyan Saga – How Are We Supposed To Put This Game Down!—Edamame Reviews
"When we first saw the price tag for Shuyan Saga, honestly we were a little skeptical. Most mobile games in 2019 don’t cost US$5.99, (if anything at all), but having played the game, we can say with confidence, it isn’t every day you find a playable fully hand-illustrated audiobook with action-packed fight scenes this cheaply."

"Shuyan Saga delivers an epic tale of a rebellious princess coming to terms with her destiny. The game plays out in quick moving comic book style scenes, with over 1400 art panels to be seen across the entire journey. Each scene is fully voiced as well, and Kristin Kreuk plays Shuyan."
"Kristin Kreuk: "I love stories and I love storytelling, and gaming is a medium in which I think stories are being told in a very interesting way. You get to be more interactive and engaged within that medium."
"Shuyan Saga is a graphic novel with 3D combat system. The graphic novel is represented through comic art style drawings that are beautifully done, it has plenty of interactive dialogue choices with a rich Chinese style. The kung fu elements come alive through the 3D combat system: the moves and the game feel is good; and having one on one combat and group combat has enhanced the variety of ways to play. In addition, it is a very creative idea to combine a combat system with a graphic novel."
"Developed by Lofty Sky Entertainment Inc. Shuyan Saga is a visual novel that includes a unique 3D combat system. The Canadian based team wanted to create a story that conveyed the personal growth that comes from learning martial arts and rather than a typical beat ’em up. The visual novel was an ideal medium for this because it allowed them to explore the narrative in a more meaningful way for the team."
"Enter the new action graphic novel story of Shuyan, and you will have found the original
and diverse concept you have been seeking. Unlike any other, the worlds of gaming and comics have collided with stunning artistry of 1400 hand drawn illustrations from Asian comic master Daxiong (DC, Dark Horse)."
"The world of comics and gaming collide with the groundbreaking Shuyan Saga. Created by Lofty Sky Entertainment Inc., Shuyan Saga is a game unlike any other. In fact, it’s a graphic novel that comes to life through the action of 3D gaming while you play your way through the story as Shuyan....Shuyan Saga is a treat in gameplay, visual arts and sound."
"Shuyan Saga delivers an epic tell of a spunky, rebellious princess coming to terms with her destiny. Shuyan Saga’s story plays out in quick moving comic book styled scenes. Each hand-drawn scene is absolutely beautiful and captures the mood and pacing of the current scene. There are over 1,400+ art panels to be seen across the entire journey, and that is quite the feat."
O'Kuroku talks with Kristen Kreuk and Shuyan Saga team

Geek Hard talks gaming, growing up, and Kung Fu with Shuyan Saga team
Kristin Kreuk: "I really like that it's a coming of age story, through the pressures of her kingdom being destroyed that she has to really look into herself and start to kind of tame that egotistical part of who she is so that she can find greater strength, strength in community, strength in her relationships, and in the love of that community. So it isn't just about her own drive for what she wants, its about what's best for everybody."
"This game is pushing forward the change most girls and women want to see: A lead female character, that is family and community driven, as opposed to the typical male love-interest that is driving the story. It is a tale as old as time… one that we’re all getting a little sick of hearing. Shuyan Saga is a game that will inspire women and teens to move into the gaming industry and apply the pressure needed to push for these stories we all want to act out."
