As a kind of literary and artistic products, players can often find some familiar reality content in it. Recently, a Genshin Impact player from the history department conducted a professional analysis of the desert map of Sino, Candice and 3.1 from the perspective of textual research. Let’s take a look with Fanfan, what did Yuanshen use in shaping the character and worldview!
First of all, the player analyzed the design of the new character Sano in 3.1. From the design point of view, Sano’s hat has very obvious jackal features. Although the jackal looks a bit like a dog, in the mythological system, the jackal is often associated with the mausoleum. It can be said that from this point of view alone, it is completely reasonable for the Sano in the game to be designed as a “wind trap” in the desert.
Then there’s the pendant on Sano’s neck and the overall clothing style. The desert is hot, so it’s not hard to understand that Sano’s clothes are cool and have a desert style. However, the pendant on the neck is more unique, and Sano’s weapons and skills also have mythological elements in it. I have to say that Yuanshen did check a lot of information in order to design a character, and he was very attentive.
The same is true for Candice. The design of the different pupils represents healing and protection, and the setting of Candice guarding Aru Village also seems more suitable. It can be said that Genshin Impact has added many identifiable characteristics while shaping the characters, and can use these characteristics to attract players.
The desert map and the desert mainline of version 3.1 also have a distinct style. To give the simplest example, the Red King Mausoleum that you see when you step into the desert has a very unique shape and color scheme, which makes players involuntarily want to approach and explore. At the same time, it is not difficult for players to find the statue at the entrance of the tomb during the exploration process. Very mysterious cultural atmosphere.
Although Xumi’s wisdom and technological elements were added to the game, a wonderful harmony was born between the fantasy of the game and some real content. It has the effect of “fantasy above reality, based on solid cultural textual research”, and presents high-quality game content and experience.
As a supplement to Xumi in version 3.1, the desert map also reveals the important theme of Xumi in a deeper level: the binary opposition between life and death. Whether it’s the plot where the Red King wants to revive his beloved, or the lines they say after meeting characters such as Naxida and Dina Zedai in the main line, it is not difficult to see that they are all carefully designed by the Yuanshen project team. more prominent.
Of course, in Tenari’s legendary mission, Genshin Impact expressed through Tenari’s viewpoint on mechanical life, that in the real world stage, human beings should have awe and respect for nature and life, which is also inseparable from The thinking of the Kaiyuanshen project team on practical problems. Although it is an overhead world, it is also one of the good intentions of game producers to convey positive views through the mouth of the game.
In addition to studying the character of Yuanshen Xumi from the mythological system, there are many players who have explored and explored other contents of Yuanshen. For example, Xumi’s battle music, from the rhythm point of view, each remake falls on the junction of the golden section, which reflects Xumi’s wisdom in the music design. Of course, the rhythm itself is inseparable from mathematics. It can be said that in the process of seeking the connection between the game and reality, Genshin Impact has indeed put in a lot of subtle ingenuity.
In fact, since the opening of Genshin Impact, especially since the debut of the Liyue area, players have more and more research on Genshin worldview, character design, cooking and other content. Having a group of players who are good at finding beauty is another matter. The two complement each other, and there is Yuanshen’s excellent game ecology today. I wonder if you in front of the screen are interested in the culture behind Genshin Impact?
