You Spoke, We listened!

Today we are pleased to announce a major update to Shuyan Saga! We've been looking through the comments and reviews to see what’s working and what isn't. Although we can't address every comment right away, we can start with some common ones! Today we are happy to announce some additions to the experience players expect from Steam. We've added 9 achievements unlocked through narrative, tournament and temple modes. We've also added Steam Trading cards for you to collect and earn Shuyan Saga swag to show off on your profile.

Some people have said the final boss battle is too easy. We are trying to walk the line between a casual graphic novel and an action's a challenge! After lots of debate we also tweaked the final fight to make it a little harder, to hopefully extend the experience and make your victory all the sweeter. We also noticed that the vast majority of players are playing the entire game on the lowest difficulty level. So please also remember that you can try a higher level of difficulty if you feel like a challenge!

We’re really thankful to those who have supported this game—it means a lot to us! Keep the comments coming. And enjoy the game!

“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 moves and the game feel is good; and having one on one combat and group combat has enhanced the variety of ways to play.”
5/5 – CowLevel

“Shuyan Saga is a compelling tale of a rebellious princess that elegantly mixes visual novel storytelling with precision based kung-fu combat.”
4.5/5 – Unigamesity

“To put it all in perspective, we have a GREAT actress as the voice of Shuyan. We have artwork which is in abundance, and then FANTASTIC music to set the tone and feel of the game...As we played through the first book I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened next.”
7/10 – The Drastik Measure
