Maybe... or some merchants bought the games from China and resale them in other countries for huge profits. I've seen Newpal XP on sale in Canada, for CAN $49 ~= 311 RMB, which is a total ripoff considering the game only costs 49 RMB.


It is a ripoff, but if I saw one at that price I wouldn't complain as unless I buy one through a reseller my only other option is to fly out to China, which would cost a lot more than $49 ^^~

I'm in the same situation with a few other Chinese games too, they're cheap and easy to find - if you're on the opposite side of the world to me!

The game will be out soon! We should have a link to the digital download tomorrow. Darn... I don't know why but I can't open any of the web sites in China today... maybe today is some sensitive political date and traffic is being censored?

The game is now available for download.

http://gjqt.gamebar.com/column/download.shtml

Size: 7.6GB

On the page, there are two ways to download. The left "点击下载" button gives you a special downloader; the right "点击下载" button gives you a torrent file. Either way, after getting this file you'll have to open the downloader or a torrent program to start downloading the game.

At the bottom of the page, there is another "点击下载" button. This is patch 1.0.1, for optimizing some graphics issues. You need to apply the patch after installing the game.


Anyway, the file is really big, and it is in Chinese only, and this file is not a demo but the full game only (apparently the publisher screwed up, and they have to release the demo version at a later date, which is disappointing).
So don't download this unless:
    You have a fast Internet.
    You can read at least some Chinese.
    You have a paypal account and are willing to pay:
US $10, or CAN $10, or 7.5 Euro, or 6 GBP, or 850 Yen

Thanks so much for keeping us updated!

Wow...it's actually the full file @_@! I was hoping it'd be a demo so I could have a little play first. I think I might wait for some of you guys to try it out first to see the level of difficulty-ness (Chinese & Gameplay), though I'm really keen on playing it :D

so can we share cdkey? or it is 1 cdkey per copy. becuz i think the website say cd key is the only thing that needs to be paid for

I don't think sharing cdkey simply is possible as activation is needed to play the game (which may detect the hardware, or limit the times one cdkey may be used, etc.)...

they said they will provide DEMO keys once they figure out how to keep the encryption working. Now a lot of people are complaining about the compatibility of the game. It runs pretty slow on some computers. maybe you guys wanna wait for an update

This game is so cheap (no matter which currency you use), is officially available to foreigners and is a proper single player Chinese epic - we should support this game with our wallets, because they've not only bothered to risk making a game in an unprofitable genre (IE Non-MMO RPG) but they've even bothered to create a system that allows us gamers outside of China to easily purchase a legitimate copy too. Any upcoming 360 RPG (Fable 3 for example) will cost me about 40GBP - this is 6GBP and in my eyes is far more beautiful and interesting than games that are asking more than 4 times the price.
