Butterfly Sword Online

Look what I found. This is NOT a game based on my book, but darn! I wish it were!

It’s based on a Gu Long novel:  Meteor Butterfly Sword.

Digital graphics for games these days are just unbelievable. Check out the detail and the scenery. Butterfly Sword online was created by 9you and rendered in the Unreal 3 Engine. Warning: Some gameworld sword fighting violence in the trailer.

As for me, I stay away from online games because I don’t need another time suck online, but wow. This is a temptation, isn’t it?

    That looks awesome, Jeannie! I’m in theory going to review a video game for Marjorie Liu’s Tiger’s Eye. I hope it’s this impressive. WOW.

    I’m so not coordinated enough to play a game like that with all those fancy moves. 😛 But the scenery was gorgeous!

    Dara – The scenery is my favorite part! So vivid. It’s inspiring just to look at the setting.

    Victoria – I was thinking of taking a look at that game. Funny thing, that’s one of the Dirk and Steel books I haven’t read, but the game looked fantastic. Looking forward to your review.
