HELLO! I am Shuning.
My Digital Artefact is ‘Mobile Games in China’. And I will build my DA around two of the most popular Mobile games in China, Honor of Kings (Wángzhě Róngyào) and PUBG Mobile(Chinese version named HePing JingYing).
I will research the development of Chinese Mobile Games from the perspective of players. I will analysis the story of characters, visual design, sound and game experience in Honor of Kings. There are 95 characters include the newest character which was released on 15 August. Almost all the characters have their own unique historical or mythological background. For example, the hero of the Journey to the West—-Sun Wukong，he is one of the most famous mythological characters in China. And the historical figures—-Shangguan Wan’er, she is famous as a poet and writer, thus her weapon is a Chinese Calligraphy Brush Pen.
In the part of PUBG mobile, I will pay more attention on version update between beta version and official version, because it has a extensive restructuring for protecting juveniles, and caused comprehensive controversy of players.
My project will be posted on YouTube and Weibo as the form of video on account of convenience and flexibility. Its target audiences is aimed at game players and people who are interested in Chinese historical and mythological figures.
Welcome your suggestions, questions and comments.
