Sango 2 at Kongming's Archives

Has anyone played this? Is there a topic for it? Someone just introduced me to it by email. It looks kind of like Three Kingdoms with a stranger art form (and perhaps less locations on the map), but here's the kicker. It seems to actually come in English!

Edit: The first looks familiar, at least.

Wow, this does look very interesting to say the least. Also quite recent. Definitely looks worth checking out.

Edit: Spent a while looking around their website. It certainly looks like a decent game (they have some other ones that look good too). It is just surprising to have never heard about them before.

What the hell? It actually does look pretty interesting. When did this come out? Also this screen shot: http://www.ezgame.com/Sango2/screenshots/battle05.jpg
See the person named Lu Lin? The made up daughter (in name) of Lu Bu from ROTK11?

Graphically, the game is down right ugly, but that's actually a GOOD thing. It means I don't have to upgrade my video card to play this game. When was this game released?

Oh, I found a free demo!!!

Are we sure thats really a good demo? That demo looks to be from nearly 2 years ago. The game came out like last week. Seems to be a pretty big difference. Lots of features can be added in that time.

Given the language on their site, I would guess that this game was just released on April 28th. Can that be right? They are offering an upgrade discount for purchasers of Sanguo, the original game in this series, effective six months prior to the 28th. Discounts like that are usually offered from the date of a game's releases.

This may have just come out!

It looks new to me. I like some of the little portrait art.

Yeah, it is definitely new. I wrote them and they responded quickly.

I like the artistic style for the portraits as well. Some are quite cool.
It would be pretty neat to get a collection of the artwork.

Hah... very cool.

Time to oil the rusty gears and make a page.

If anyone plays with a demo let us know about it!

I'm actually not too keen on their art, but to each their own. I'll play if the gameplay is good, and that's all I ask for. I'll give the demo a try later.
