Mastering the most common 1,000 words in a language would mean you could confidently converse with locals, read general text, gain an overall understanding of newspaper articles and feel a great sense of reward!
This may take hours, weeks, or months of game play, but what better outcome could there be, that after conquering all levels, you can now better relate to an additional 1.4 billion of the world’s citizens. A game that's time well spent, and not time wasted.
Imagine filling spare pockets of time with purposeful entertainment! If say, after [200 hours] of playing "[MSQ]", you found yourself reading a Chinese menu and successfully avoiding the rubber-band like tendons of the chickens feet special. Or switching off the subtitles and still fully understanding who Jet Li is going to demolish.
I would love for you to help me bring Mandarin Shooter Quest to the masses! We will work night and day and use the funds raised here on Kickstarter to build and provide a unique approach to learning Chinese!
So for the cost of one Chinese lesson, a textbook, an unused set of Rosetta Stone CDs or a half eaten suckling roast pig^^, please pledge generously to help provide the necessary resources to make our learning game a reality. 谢谢你！
^^ We are unsure of the value of a half eaten Chinese roast pig but figure it should be pretty low. i.e. any support would really be appreciated.
