|Japanese mobile game “Tabi Kaeru Cheap Neven Subotic Jersey ,” or “Traveling Frog” in English, has gone viral among local youth, particularly among female players.
“The game caters to the softest part of some white-collars,” said He Yunfeng, head of Shanghai Normal University’s institute of knowledge and value sciences. “Many of them are striving for a living here in an unfamiliar city. They may empathize with the game as the frog has its own adventure which is completely out of the player’s hands.”
In the game players need to prepare a frog for a journey. Players harvest clover as currency to buy props and make a backpack for the frog before he goes on the journey. The frog will send postcards and bring back souvenirs.
It had become the most downloaded free app in the simulation game section of the Apple store by yesterday.
The game provides little interaction room for players. “Except for preparing lunchbox and harvesting clovers, all you can do is wait for it to come home Cheap Mikel Merino Jersey ,” said Li Jiahe, who is obsessed with the game after playing it for two weeks.
“The game reminds me of my time at university away from home,” said Dong Xiaoqi, who works in Shanghai but is from Ningbo in Zhejiang Province. “I thought my mother was nagging at the time when she constantly asking me about my life here. Isn’t it grotesque to understand a mother’s mind via such a game!”
In Japanese, “kaeru” pronounced in Japanese means “frog” as noun, it also means “homecoming” as a verb.
The game is popular among young people as it shows a Buddhism concept. The concept refers to people who see through the emptiness of the material world and follow their heart. They find relationships troublesome and prefer to be alone.
Players like Dong refer themselves as “the mom” of the frog.
“My frog has been gone for three days Cheap Maximilian Philipp Jersey , where did he go?” Cheng Chen, an office worker in an accounting firm mumbles to herself during lunch. “It is a fair escape for me to temporarily absent myself from workplace.” Cheng installed the game in both her working phone and private phone.
“Some souvenirs, such as a Japanese style tumbler, are quite rare to collect,” Li said of the game. “I spent 25 yuan (US$4) to buy 2,800 clovers to redeem an amulet.”
According to many players Cheap Matthias Ginter Jersey , the props will have some influence on the frog’s destination or trip times, but the frog’s journey is random. “It is said if you prepare a pasty in its lunchbox, the frog will go to somewhere far,” said Dong. “Basically, you have no control on the game whatsoever.”
According to statistics from research firm App Annie which tracks the mobile application market and user behavior, players have spent about US$200 Cheap Mario Gotze Jersey ,000 on the game by Sunday, one month after its debut.
App Annie didn’t provide Android market figures. But the game is “surprisingly popular” in its application store, said Oppo, one of the top three Chinese smartphone vendors.
Serena Williams will return to competitive tennis next month when she teams with sister Venus and CoCo Vandeweghe at the Fed Cup.
Serena, who gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia in September, will be competing for the first time since the 2017 Australian Open Cheap Marco Reus Jersey , where she won her 23rd Grand Slam — an Open Era record.
U.S. Fed Cup captain Kathy Rinaldi announced Tuesday that Serena and Venus Williams will be among the Team USA roster when they face the Netherlands in the Fed Cup on Feb. 10-11 in Asheville, N.C.
The best-of-five match series against the Netherlands will be played on a hard court at the U.S. Cellular Center. This is the first time Asheville has hosted the Fed Cup.
Serena Williams, who has won 23 Grand Slam championships during her storied career, will play her first competitive match in more than a year. Venus Williams, ranked No. 5 in the world, has won seven major championships and will also be joined by No. 9 world ranked Coco Vandeweghe on the roster.
Demp Bradford Cheap Marcel Schmelzer Jersey , executive director of the Asheville Buncombe Sports Commission, said the announcement of the U.S. Fed Cup team in Asheville is “incredible.” He said he found out the roster would include the Williams sisters and Vandeweghe on Monday night, a decision he remarked left him “almost speechless.”
“There’s 30 Grand Slams between the two of them,” he said. “It’s just so exciting to have both Williams sisters here. We were hoping for maybe one. To get both of them here and CoCo, it’s tremendous. Our tennis community has been so tremendous to support this event and to buy the tickets without knowing who was going."
Rinaldi will announce the final member of the four-player roster next week, according to the USA Tennis Association.
“Now Cheap Marc Bartra Jersey , all of a sudden, we were close to 5,000 seats a day," Bradford said Tuesday evening. "We’re probably going to be sold out in the next couple of hours.”
Neither of the Williams sisters has been a member of a Fed Cup team over the last two years, but they have been on the same team eight times during their careers, most recently in 2015. Team USA won last year's Fed Cup and has 18 titles overall.
Bradford said that “what a great thing it will be” to see ticket scalpers along Haywood Street. He anticipates the event will be a shot in the arm for the area’s tourism industry in a typically slower month of February.
Play begins at 12:30 p.m. Feb. 10 and 11. One doubles match will be played during the series Cheap Mahmoud Dahoud Jersey , but it has yet to be announced if the Williams sisters will be paired together.
“What a great way for them to start out as the reigning world champs than here in Asheville,” Bradford said.(Agencies)
