Rising Suns – Shanghai 1937

1) Concept of the Game:
A first-person camera shooting game. You play as an American wartime journalist in Shanghai 1937, taking photos in the battle field. The photos you took will decide how the world sees the battle.

2) Why create this game?
It’s one night during winter break, we are sitting in the dorm and playing games and drank beers late into the night. We had a good time and had many wild ideas going on. “Why not create a game based on the true story of battle of China-Japan?” one of us brought up the question while we talked about the history. “That is cool idea!” we should do that. Then we decided to pitch the idea and start working on it to make it real.

3) Where does the game take place?
The game takes place in Shanghai, China in 1937, just before the outbreak of Pacific War of WWII. Imperial Japanese Army invaded Shanghai and Chinese Nationalist Army is ready to defend.
