Could you please edit the subject so there’s more information? No one knows what Rise of the White Sun is.
I think it is a Witcher reference:
Played the demo - it’s a bit hard to follow. You have limited action points to spend each turn - you use these to get various factions in Shanghai to sign up to your uprising - one turn you spend your points getting the workers in a factory riled up. Another turn you use your points to get weapons etc etc. There are events where I think rival factions are doing the same thing? Anyway, you have to get support to a certain level before the army approaching from the South turns up.
It’s cool that your playing as Zhou Enlai - but that doesn’t seem to influence the gameplay at all - same with the ‘conversations’ you have - I would have liked more consequence from these - as it is you can just skip through them.
Played around with the demo. A shame it limits you to playing the Communist faction. They got creamed in Shanghai in 1927 and it seems difficult to change their fate in the demo. I will return to the demo when I have more time.
Based just on what I’ve read in this thread, it sounds like Chaos Overlords, but with a setting in 1920s China. If that’s what’s being served, I’ll be first in line!
Could you please encourage non-self-obsolescent thread titles while you’re at it? A vague thread is only confusing until you click on it once, but when Rise of the White Sun 5 is the biggest blockbuster of 2048, we’ll still be discussing it in the “Demo Out on Steam” thread.
Actually the gameplay video I’ve seen reminds me more of Republic:The Revolution.
