Based on an old PlayStation videogame that apparently had no U.S. release, Kowloon's Gate, the sim is a labyrinth of alleyways, shops, neon signs, and beautifully crafted surprises around every corner.
Visit there, shop there, RP (without weapons) there, and ideally, dress more appropriately than my created-thanks-to-Rudi surfer-girl avi is dressed.
|Great shops, beautiful artistry|
|The feeling is like being in a mostly deserted San Fran or NY Chinatown|
|Where are the almond cookies? Anyone see a bakery?|
|When is the dragon parade? Yikes, I'm sucha tourist.|
|A less sinister feeling than Midian City to me, but that's not for lack of dark alleyways.|
|The gate: open due to a resident having recently arrived.|
|Interesting sign for a shooter-videogame-based sim.|
|Mmmm the sweet smells of an incense shop. Great for my Dia de los Muertos alter in NOLA next year.|
|Artful builds within builds. On the left is the original notecard; on the right is a Google translation of the text.|
