Glorius Mission, eh ?
Isn't that the one where Chinese pirates had got their hands on a beta copy and were selling it for an impressive amount of money ? A game that is supposed to be free ?
Ah, I love the smell of irony in the morning.
China has launched a first-person shooter titled Glorious Mission Online, that was co-developed by the People’s Liberation Army and offers players a chance to defeat a Japanese invader. The software is a so-called “red game”, a genre that has become increasingly popular in China in recent years. These patriotic shoot ‘em ups …
China have more in common with the US than they realise. Just like the US, the Communists hid for most of the war and relied on other people (the Guomindang in the Communist's case) to weaken their enemy before charging in at the end and claiming all the credit for 'winning the war'.
I hope the Taiwanese government make a game that shows what 'really' happened.
"Subsist on tree bark and shoe leather from those less fortunate as you watch your family die in this real-time strategy epic!"
The best part would be if you did a mobile version where you could use micropayments to get more bark and leather for your family. There'd be something poetic about people throwing money away in order to more effectively pretend to live in grinding poverty.
