Excellent Works and Game2Skys Way of Custom-made Big Titles Adaption 

Ensuring quality production and innovative gameplay, the current success of One Piece:Burning Will is not surprising. With such a large number of updates, its not difficult to see that Game2Sky is aiming for something beyond a short-term hit. Instead, it is planning for long-term sustained quality operations.

Established in 2013, although still very young, Game2sky is growing at an astonishing speed. Within five years, it has released plenty of phenomenal works including Tornado Girl, Swordsman in Black, Drawing Jianghu: The Degenerates 2, and Story of the Peach Blossom Valley, making itself one of the top mobile-game firms in China. Additionally, Game2sky is especially good at adapting anime titles to games. For example, Swordsman in Black, since its public release in May 2016, has been running smoothly after reaching a total transaction amount of 50 million on Android distribution channels and app stores alone. Whereas Drawing Jianghu: The Degenerates 2, adapted with authorization from a Chinese anime, is also considered both a commercial and artistic success after achieving a total transaction amount close to 50 million in the first month while winning multiple influential awards including Golden Interest and Golden Roc.

In one of his previous interviews, Yunzheng Gao, the CEO of Game2sky, made clear thatIP adaption to games is more like making a film - every player has his own expectations which have to be met first. The majority of IP-adapted games on the market are just using the IP as a bait, which I think is not the right way of perceiving it. A good game, in the real sense, should be custom-made for its IP. Only in this way will real efforts be paid into its production and support from fans truly earned.” 

In order to produce custom-made famous franchise-derived games, Game2Sky, responsible to its users, dived into every title by doing researches amongst its core users and loyal fans, reaching for their central demands, adding gameplay contents in accordance with each franchise under the premise of preserving the originals to the utmost level. Responsible to users, Game2sky, a game company that plays no tricks, is expecting a bright future.

With previous successes, Game2sky is winning the attention of more well-known big titles. As reported, Game2sky will release mobile games for Drawing Jianghu: The Degenerates 3 as well as two internationally renowned franchises, Devil May Cry, and Batman. According to available information, Drawing Jianghu: The Degenerates 3 is a sandbox game of high degrees of freedom in the martial art genre. In addition to survival skills such as wood-cutting and horse-riding, roles played by users can feel temperature and hunger in the game, adding another layer novelty to the gameplay. In the 2008 Tencent Summit of Global Partners, Yunzheng Gao, founder of Game2sky, used Devil May Cry: Battle of the Top as an example of Devil May Cry series derivatives at the mobile end. The game itself retains the combating experience from the PC works, e.g., players can control their characters to achieve silky ability chaining and airborne combats that has been missed by game-players for long. 

No games nor any tricks, with its unyielding spirit for innovation as well as its sense of responsibility to its users, Game2Skys seemingly dumb way of producing quality games may actually be the best way to take deeper roots in the highly competitive market of mobile games in China.
