Black Myth: Wukong

Post by JaySevenZero »

I'm sure there's gonna be a fair amount of chatter around this reveal as the prominent Western sites get wind of it.



Kotaku Australia described it with the following;

"Black Myth is basically a Chinese studio’s crack at a AAA Dark Souls inspired action-adventure, laced with all the Chinese martial arts, monsters and mysticism you’d expect from the name."

I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying it looks really fucking good!

Wow, that's really impressive. It's pretty interesting to see this recent surge in Chinese games showing up. They've gradually been getting better over time, and the future looks very promising.

I'm not entirely sure the Dark Souls comparison is the best comparison though. The pace seems too fast for that, and it didn't appear there was any stamina mechanic. Maybe Sekiro is a better comparison. You could even call some parts of that musou.

Saw this doing the rounds on Twitter and it looks great - will definitely be keeping an eye on it!

Will be really interesting to see how the Chinese game dev scene develops over the coming years. It's huge already and there are studios popping up all over the place, but while some are working as support devs on big games already, a lot of the output doesn't make it over to western markets at the moment.

I wonder who will be the first one to really break through and become a big brand AAA studio in the west in their own right. Game Science are certainly making an impression with this game that's for sure!

Just from what they've showed already it looks amazing. They definitely have the art style and graphics down pat, and the gameplay looks right up my alley. I just hope that the story is engaging, i know of 'Journey to the West' but i dont think ive experienced the story in any kind of medium. This looks like it might be taking place before that particular story.

So far, everything Game Science have shown regarding their game has been kinda awesome and this latest video impressed me even more than their last.

Yeah, had my eye on this for a while and it's looking better and better the more I see of it.

Will def be checking it out as it continues development. I love the way you can use the stick to perch atop it like a pole and then slam the whole thing down on your enemy, extended and all for huge reach. I wonder if it will use a kind of unlocking tree or something. Will be interesting to see some of the other mechanics like progression and stuff.

I'd forgotten about this after being initially impressed, glad to see it's still looking pretty brilliant!
