About This Game

Story Outline

In the treacherous world of martial arts, young Gong Zhen ventures into the gray area between good and evil.
With lofty aspirations of becoming a great hero, he unintentionally becomes the target of Wei Shuang Yun, a legendary figure known as the "Black Swallow" of the martial arts world.
Gong Zhen tries to clear up the misunderstanding and joins forces with Wei Shuang Yun to investigate a series of murders that have taken place in town. They soon discover that the culprit is Blood Phoenix, the top assassin on the Crimson Flower Ranks, another legendary figure in the martial arts world. Blood Phoenix is also Wei Shuang Yun's biggest rival, with the latter representing the righteous people of the martial arts world.
As Gong Zhen sets foot in the martial arts world, he faces one obstacle after another, unaware that these events are all connected to a shocking case. In the world of martial arts, one is unable to control their own fate, and one misstep can lead to deadly consequences. Can Gong Zhen steer the ship to safety?
Singing in the dead of night, accompanied by a beautiful lady.
The young man travels the Jianghu with his sword, where does his journey end?
