With so much interest in GuJian I've decided to put a poll together to see how many here will actually be buying/playing it!
Please vote in the poll and let us know! (You will have the option of changing your poll vote, so just vote what is currently relevant for you :) )

Patch 1.0.3 has been released.

I think I'll wait for another patch before buying it... The game is still not very stable, and I don't have time to play since I'm spending my free time on the translation project...

To people who considering whether to buy the game, I think it's worth.

The major bugs are more or less fixed. when screen freeze, I usually just click on the top left hand corner of the window where the icon of the game is. (for windows) and the freeze will stop most of the times.

To the storyline, just killed a more major boss, and I thought it is the end (how can it be so short... :lol:) , but there was a twist like PAL4, where one of the supposed protagonist turns out to be an antagonist. Weird though, he manage to fool all the other main characters, then suddenly revealed himself through a conversation with his subordinate, without the main character's knowledge. A form of stage irony? lol

I think I can hope for a Russian version of this game, because once in a lifetime, Russian publishers release some chinese games for sale in Russian (e.g. Meteor, butterfly and a blade, Master Li and the Flying Blade)
Here's some cover screens:

Anyway, if it's out here, I'll definitely buy it (Even if it will cost 20$)
I also sent an e-mail to Aurogon support regarding the possibility of an English version for foreign users, so if they answer me, I'll reply to this topic 8)

yea english version will definitely help. Even for me, a chinese, I couldn't understand a lot of the conversations. Well there're two kinds of chinese... plain language and old language (文言文). Nowadays most of schools outside China only teach plain language. The game is a mixture of both, as the character's conversations are very poetic. Which means, regular chinese speakers would not comprehend the conversation fully, I missed out a lot of the content because of that.

So yup english version would benefit everyone. But I guess it is a lot of work to translate, this game's story-line is way longer than PAL4 or other prequels.

Not exactly like ancient. Just that some parts they keep quoting ancient sayings and even Confucius and Buddha teachings. Those parts are difficult to comprehend but the main story-line is fine.

Very interesting.... I've never played a game made in Russia (Tetris does not count). I wonder why they are interested in Chinese-style games.

This was an EPIC Chinese game. Superb for its time. Hell, superb even compared to some of the nonsense game makers spew out nowadays. EDIT: I was talking about Meteor, Butterfly and a Blade being epic lol. Just wanted to make that clear.

And now you've just made me go order the game. :oops: I love the ancient Chinese language. Really sets the mood. :P :P :P
I need more wuxia in my life.

:P :P :P
