Vietnam's First Home-grown Game Project Traces History & Culture

March 25, 2009 -

While Vietnamese game developers have been doing contract work for foreign companies for some time, the country's first locally-created game project is now underway.

Thanh Nien News reports that Game Studio South, a subsidiary of VinaGame, is developing Thuan Thien Kiem, a PC title which draws upon the history and culture of Vietnam:

The first 100-percent Vietnamese game is expected to be launched this summer under the title Thuan Thien Kiem, which means “God’s Sword,” a legendary weapon used by Vietnamese King Le Loi in the 14th-15th centuries...

Taking place in the Later Le Dynasty from the mid-15th century to 16th century, Thuan Thien Kiem features content from local folk stories and legends. In the game, players take on the roles of legendary Vietnamese heroes and heroines...

Traditional customs like marriage ceremonies and folk games will also be a part of the game, which aims to give players the background histories of favorite folk songs. The game also details the origins of several rare pieces of music from Vietnam’s past dynasties.

Sounds like a neat game, good luck to them.

A great initiative, very educational, and might shut the damn mouth of a few people out there. I look forward to play it.

Now, how long till a politician calls the Devil's Work, other unholy entities and mass murderers on this...

I have a better idea.

'Oh my god, Vietnam was once an enemy! They're trying to cloud the mind of our children again! Mythology today, communism tommorow!'
