Sifu’s main inspiration comes from classic kung fu movies, with some members of the Sloclap Pak Mei development team having practiced kung fu and other martial arts. During the game’s development, the Sloclap team worked closely with the Kowloon Nights team in Beijing and Hong Kong to ensure the game was as respectful of Chinese kung fu culture as possible.
Various consultants from Chinese video game companies were invited to contribute and provide feedback, resulting in numerous changes to the game, from the main character’s appearance to environmental details. In keeping with the five elements of wuxing at the heart of the game, Chinese composer Howie Lee blended traditional Chinese instruments with electronic music to create a unique soundtrack that further enhances the authentic feel that the Sloclap team was aiming for.
So if you want more, you can wait for the first update, which will be released soon!
