Transmigrated As The Big Boss's Mobile System - Chapter 27.2
Although Ding Yuxiao made a lot of money in the past years, 400 million is not a small amount at all. Ding Yuxiao’s studio made 180 million net profit in 2019. And that is inclusive of a popular movie and TV series.
There are not a lot of movies being made in the entertainment industry, and the production and release time span of movies takes a long time. If he only relies on movies and TV shows for the remaining year, there is no guarantee that he would win his bet. Yuancheng Technology’s Compagnon, from the design concept, new features designed by Lou Wei, or the avatar scan by Wen Fan, gave him a lot of confidence in the prospect of this game.
By allowing Compagnon to pay him out in terms of dividend, this will be a turning point to help him pull in more profit.
After listening to his words, Wen Fan looked up at Lou We, “Did you agree?”
Lou Wei nodded, and said, “Ding Yuxiao is very valuable.”
Ding Yuxiao’s reputation in the entertainment industry is not comparable to that of most celebrities. He has been earning money frantically for the past two years and wanted to work on a job every single day. His long-term high exposure had brought him a lot of attention from black or jade fans.
As long as Ding Yuxiao has his own avatar in Compagnon, it would certainly drive a lot of players. Ding Yuxiao had his eyes on the dividends payout from Compagnon in the future, because he has a feeling that since Yuancheng Technology’s ‘Heaven Dream’ is popular all over the country, Compagnon will be able to break the records. And what Lou Wei targeted was Ding Yuxiao’s ability to attract fans.
Wen Fan nodded in agreement.
He also agreed that they should partner with Ding Yuxiao. After all, the talented star who won the title of Best Lead Actor at the age of twenty-nine years old is indeed very capable. And the number of fans he had is just second to Ke Yan’an. Compared to Ke Yanan, Ding Yuxiao has a more comfortable personality compared to Ke Yanan and this is even more attractive.
So that afternoon, Zhang Xuan, who was in charge of negotiating with celebrities on the contract agreement, received Lou Wei’s notice. She followed Lou Wei’s introduction and contacted Ding Yuxiao’s agent. Both parties began to formally sign the image copyright agreement.
Zhang Xuan has been cooperating with four other celebrities in the past two days. They have all filmed the promotional videos for Compagnon. Now that they had Ding Yuxiao onboard, they would need to retake the video to include Ding Yuxiao. The influence of Ding Yuxiao is simply greater than the combination of the fan appeal of the other four celebrities. Zhang Xuan is eager to do a grand retake for Ding Yuxiao.
Zhang Xuan was very efficient in her work. She finished filming the promotional videos for Compagnon for all the celebrities in less than a day. And it has been agreed that when Compagnon announces the official release date, they will also publish the promotional videos on the Internet.
The next day, it was the date of the official release date announcement for Compagnon.
Wen Fan got up early to witness this meaningful moment that takes place at nine o’clock in the morning.
He read the comments left by netizens on Weibo, Apps stores and game stores. He noticed that everyone was equally impatient.
These few days, the netizens have been discussing the functions and gameplay of Compagnon. But the more they discussed, the more they were convinced that only Yuancheng Technology could develop such a game. Other game companies that had learned about Compagnon’s core technology were still clueless on the source codes and it was obvious that they couldn’t catch up with the Yuancheng Technology at all.
The more the netizens discussed this, the more they realized that Yuancheng Technology is better. The more they debated, the more they discovered that Lou Wei’s Compagnon is irreplaceable.
So for a moment, everyone is looking forward to the release of Compagnon.
Yuancheng Technology doesn’t need to do a lot of marketing. The hot searches are all related to Compagnon,
#When will Compagnon be released#,
#A certain game title ‘C’ has driven me crazy#,
#What is your most anticipated game(heart.jpg)# etc.
All of them were on Weibo’s hot search list.
So as soon as they released the news that Compagnon is now available for pre-order. Fans of Yuancheng Technology from all over the network immediately clicked the pre-order button. The netizens who could hardly wait any longer, rushed to the App Store to pre-order the game, not wasting any time at all.
At the same time, the celebrities cooperating with Yuancheng Technology also started to promote Compagnon on their Weibo accounts. In their individual promotional video, it showed how their fans interact with their avatars and some fans even watch movies, anime with their idols, while some even scanned their own image to create an avatar to get married to their beloved idol’s avatar in the game.
The last feature especially grabbed the hearts of all fans.
Fans who have not participated in the Compagnon campaign could only watch the promotional videos and list of participating celebrities in envy. And for those who participated in the campaign, for example, Ding Yuxiao’s fans downloaded the game as soon as they watched the promotional videos.
Wen Fan saw that the number of pre-order for Compagnon rose rapidly in the APPs store. In less than one hour, it rose to more than 20 million orders.
It broke the record of the highest number of pre-order after the announcement of a mobile game release in the last five years.
Compagnon is on fire. This is a trend that can be seen from the very beginning.
Although some people are jealous of Yuancheng Technology’s Compagnon and posted malicious comments on the Internet, saying that their ‘scanning program’ must not be as realistic as the ones shown in the promotional videos.
But no matter how they left bad reviews, the netizens still buy it.
Wen Fan looked at the number of pre-orders soaring into the sky. His little heart was beating wildly. The feeling of witnessing how well the audiences accepted and welcomed the game that he participated in the design and development is really awesome!
It is way better than when he designed software on his own. Even if he managed to develop it, others don’t even care who developed it.
Wen Fan could even feel his blood boiling. This is the first time he felt the joy of designing a game.
Lou Wei appeared a lot calmer. He was carefully testing data of the first release of Compagnon in detail to ensure that there are no bugs with it.
At first, Wen Fan told himself that Lou Wei is still busy, so he didn’t pay attention to the pre-order statistics. But after waiting for a long time, Wen Fan couldn’t sit still when Lou Wei didn’t ask him about how many pre-orders they received so far.
He leaned on the screen and looked at Lou Wei who was still busy, “Aren’t you… curious about the pre-order status of Compagnon?”
Unexpectedly, Lou Wei replied to him quickly. To be precise, one could say that Lou Wei answered without hesitation, “I’m afraid to know.”
Wen Fan was stunned, “What are you afraid of?” Will people like Lou Wei who seem to excel in everything ever feel worried?
As soon as he finished speaking, Lou Wei nodded and looked at him. He said solemnly, “I’m afraid that the Compagnon project that you co-designed wasn’t doing as well as we had anticipated.”
Wen Fan who at first, planned to pursue further immediately kept quiet. He listened to the words of his male god and stared at the handsome face of his male god. Now when he thinks about what Lou Wei meant, he felt his little heart beating even faster.
Before he got to express his opinion, the penguin beside him had already pulled out a heart from behind his *ss and ‘stuck’ it on Wen Fan’s body. The red heart was still pounding realistically which totally represented Wen Fan’s thoughts.
Wen Fan, “…”
