Softstar Entertainment Inc.


Softstar (Chinese: 大宇, Da Yu) is a computer game developer based in Taipei, Taiwan (China). It was founded on April 27th, 1988, by a group of three people, and incorporated ten years later. Eric Lee is the company's CEO.

Softstar has gradually gained a reputation of the leading developer and publisher of Chinese (Taiwanese)-made role-playing games. Xuanyuan Jian (1990) was one of the first Chinese-made games in the genre. Utilizing Japanese gameplay mechanics, the game was set in old China, establishing the tradition of Chinese RPGs with historical settings. Xuanyuan Jian spawned many sequels and became the longest-running Chinese RPG series.

In 1995, Softstar released Xianjian Qixia Zhuan, also known as The Legend of Sword and Fairy, which became one of the most popular Chinese games of all times, inspiring not only several sequels, but also a TV series. In the second half of the 2000's Softstar began to shift its focus on online games.
