The game has is very broad with a main arc and six side arcs which are very substantial in of themselves.

Writers Arc : Revive your failed writing career with a gold opportunity to get involved in a Hong Kong movie production. It begins as a script rewrite job but evolves into something else. Make a movie, try to keep your sanity and look for love in all the wrong places.
Donnie Arc: Work as an informant to a renegade Hong Kong cop. Donnie is also your childhood friend whose heart you broke when you were sixteen. Can you bring down the Triad and regain her trust?
Spin Arc: Plan the perfect heist, the Macau Job with a childhood friend. Can you work for the Triad while secretly planning to rob them at the same time. Can you get Spin to follow orders?
Great story with an authentic feel to the whole Asian action movie scene you said you were going for. I wouldn’t get too concerned with the typos til you are ready to put it in beta testing, but that is the only real issue I encountered. There will need to be a lot of proofreading done by the beta testers, but everything else looks amazing. I will be keeping an eye on this work and looking for its release. I, however never beta test as I feel it kind of ruins things for me. I will buy the final product though as the demo is just too good.
