Description

During the late years of Song Dynasty in China (12th century), the ambition of the northern Manchu-like Jin nation to invade the rich empire became too strong. The situation was worsened by the corruption of Chinese minister, such as Qing Gui, who was one of the most prominent politicians who betrayed his country. You play as a young man named Dugu Jian, the best pupil of the school Hengshan. His father was a famous swordsman who was betrayed by his best friend, Zhang Feng and was killed. Dugu Jian begins a quest for personal revenge, which only becomes stronger because of his desire to protect China from the Jin invaders.

Xin Jianxia Qingyuan is a remake of an older Chinese-made role-playing game. This version features isometric pre-rendered backgrounds with small 3D characters, and point-and-click interface with highlighted persons and objects, similar to Baldur's Gate series. The combat is action-based. The player has to click on the enemy to attack physically, or cast spells in real time by pressing one of the previously assigned quick buttons. In standard RPG fashion, the protagonist receives experience points by defeating foes, gaining levels and becoming stronger.
