If working to make a living is the reality, then practicing martial arts is the ideal. The mobile game "Working Hero of Martial Arts” combines reality and dream, telling the story of a post-80s man who inadvertently gets a martial arts sutra and starts a double life.

It is not easy to survive in the city, but still we try to maintain our dream - this is the story of "Working Hero of Martial Arts” as well as the story of Hong Kong independent game industry. How to keep on producing games in face of high rent and living cost is a common challenge for every Hong Kong game maker. Mr. Wong Yue Fai, the programmer of  "Working Hero of Martial Arts”, and his company has also produced the internal training game "Throne Legend" for the accounting firm Deloitte, which is another game path they have explored.

In this week of Game Kitchen, we invited Mr. Wong Yue Fai to share the journey of making games for and as working heros in Hong Kong.
