2As a videogame designer, Chen Mo thought that his life was already perfect.
All the games that Chen Mo had designed went into video game history.
1“Journey” had received seven awards at the Global Game Developers Conference, including Best Visuals, Best Design, Best Sound Effects, and Most Innovative Game of the Year.
2League of Legends was now seven years old and still held the throne of PC gaming. The League of Legends World Championship finals continued to break viewership numbers.
1The Last of Us, Uncharted, and GTA5 were popular all around the world, selling tens of millions of copies, breaking many records in the process.
Outlast, Tales Of Glory, and Thriller Paradise had revolutionized the VR gaming industry. Many video game designers considered them classics as they studied them repeatedly .
13Even mobile games, such as Honor of Kings and Onmyoji, were always at the top of mobile games ranking, barely threatened by their competitors.
3Dont even get him started on the money tabletop games made in just two months. That was really easy money.
1And then theres also RapeL… Nevermind, that genre hadnt really been explored.
15If Chen Mo had any regrets, it was probably the fact that he still hadnt fixed his habit of daydreaming while on overtime.
7Thats right, all of the above were just Chen Mos daydreams. He was actually the main producer in a mobile games company from China. It was inevitable that he would start daydreaming after two months of gruesome overtime.
5Just like other video game producers, Chen Mo entered the industry filled with hopes and dreams. However, after a few years of overtime, the dreams he once had were drowned out by harsh reality.
5However, Chen Mo still liked calling himself a video game designer despite being a video game producer. That might be all that remained of his hopes and dreams.
2Chem Mo looked at the table next to him, which still had a cup of noodles from yesterday on it. It belonged to a software developer with messy hair and massive eye bags.
1Cant help it, the software developer had stayed back longer than Chen Mo did.
Perhaps software developers were aliens. Chen Mo felt like the extra five minutes of overtime might kill him, but the software developers seemed to be able to maintain this zombie-like condition for months. Even when more bugs appear after they sayitll be online after this bugs fixed, they still have enough energy to fly to the moon.
8Alas, that is the life of hard workers.
“This is so boring! I cant take this anymore, Im gonna take a nap.”
Not knowing if he was laying down or had passed out, he felt his vision going black. It didnt matter as long as he was unconscious.
1Perhaps its just a part of his imagination, but Chen Bo heard a sound in his dream.
