Life is Strange: True Colors
Life is Strange: True Colors is set in the town of Haven Springs, where a shop called Treasures of Tibet can be seen with a Tibetan flag over the entrance. This flag is used as a symbol of the Tibetan independence movement and is banned in mainland China, which is why it has caused complaints among Chinese players on Steam.
While the user reviews remain very positive, most of the negative reviews come from Chinese gamers. “The game contains elements of Tibetan independence and implies a split in China,” said one negative review, and “Tibet is part of China” repeated another review.
A third says: “Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and Tibet have been Chinese territories since ancient times. I suggest that the NEETs read more books, stop being stupid, and get a job to make a living. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and Tibet are forever part of China”.
Chinese users had previously criticized Devotion to a far greater extent for containing a hidden reference to a meme in which Chinese President Xi Jinping was compared to Winnie the Pooh. Similar incidents, however, are not always politically motivated.
Nier: Automata was panned out when it was released in Asia because of the lack of support for the Chinese language. Simplified Chinese is the most popular language in Chinese, and China is Steam’s second largest market.
As of this month, Chinese players under the age of 18 are only allowed to play online for one hour per day, on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and on official holidays from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. An offline single player game like Life is Strange is not affected.
