Transmigrated As The Big Boss's Mobile System - Chapter 3.2
Lou Wei held a special family background. He had been building his business since First Year of University, making money madly. He was simply a workaholic who wished he could split a day into two.
But this was the first time he saw Lou Wei not paying attention in a meeting. Usually, this was impossible.
However, when Zhao Mengke was still guessing what Lou Wei was staring at, he saw Lou Wei frowning and his face darkened. Because Wen Fan turned off the TV.
It just took Wen Fan two seconds to realize a very critical issue- the TV was muted!
The sound of the mobile phone came from the speaker outside the screen. But Lou Wei’s mobile phone was set to silent mode. Even if they were watching TV, it’s going to be a silent movie.
The feeling of watching a silent movie was exactly the same as eating rice without putting soy sauce on it. Bland and tasteless but pity to discard. Wen Fan gritted his teeth as he turned off the tv. The QQ Penguin and Kangaroo beside him also sighed, exhaling two small bubbles that were like two pieces of mushroom clouds.
Lou Wei who had been looking at Wen Fan’s action from behind saw him turning off the TV and he immediately figured out the issue. But before Lou Wei managed to say anything, the three other directors in the meeting talked about the issues on the new games that they were doing research on.
Wen Fan also heard the stern voice appearing suddenly from outside the mobile phone. He quickly hugged the Penguin and turned around to look at the image. On the monitor, the few people looked like youths in their thirties.
They were frowning as they looked at the proposal in their hand, “Chairman, you ever raised a question on the capital investment on the new RPG mobile game. If we are to go according to our plan on collaborating ‘Heaven’s Dream’ with the surrounding tourism industries next year, preparing for this end of year ‘Heaven’s Dream’ online conference and the budget allocation for New Year Eve party. If we are to top up additional funds into developing new games, our reserved cash will decrease. But if the new games are not making a profit, it is very likely to impact the capital turnover for other games.”
Wen Fan recalled the figure for last year’s revenue that he saw on the internet for ‘Heaven’s Dream’. It was over tens of billions of dollars. Are they still having concern over capital turnover?
But Wen Fan didn’t understand all this anyway.
He could only saw Lou Wei’s face which was already cold getting tighter.
“MOBA online games have been popular for ten years. Within ten years, RPG online games will also become popular. It is different from A-RPG role playing games and TPS action games. The players can get rid of the plot line and solely rely on leveling up and developing the main character to experience the game. It is more suitable to the concept of fast consumption, short entertainment and the spiritual demands of young people toward 2D characters or 2.5D characters.”
“The ultimate goal of ‘Heaven’s Dream’ is to become the world’s first online game that can operate with hologram. But it is still a long way to go to develop a hologram online game. So we’re going to develop another 2D or other dimensional character that others would love. It can be in a game of developing the persona of their mobile phone companion which is just nice to fill in the gap of their recent game release.”
Wen Fan also agreed to Lou Wei’s words. But there were still many others in the conference room that were still considering the issue of investment capitals.
After Lou Wei finished speaking, a lot of people started to whisper their discussion on the budget expenses for the new RPG game that Lou Wei had proposed. They couldn’t come to a conclusion.
Wen Lan also saw the game proposal on Lou Wei’s computer. When he saw Lou Wei’s design in detail, he felt it was very interesting indeed. To be honest, RPG persona development game was available many years ago. But it has not been popular.
It’s nothing more than an additional voice chatting system with a face in the mobile phone. Aside from basic language communication and changing of 2D outfit, there is nothing new about it.
There was even a gaming company who designed an upgraded version that enabled the game’s persona to interact with the desktop’s alarm clock and linked the persona to the calendar so that it had the ability to inform the user on their schedule.
But it was merely leveling up on details, there were not much changes to the basic functions. But the persona development game that Lou Wei designed was taken from various mangas, animes, movies and even purchased copyright from real celebrities to design a compatible persona for mobile phone platforms.
The affection level for both parties could be upgraded through continuous communication and entertainment with the persona. Thus opened up different game’s ending. It’s simply like bringing your beloved Prince Charming home.
If they bought the copyright of anime goddesses and certain male celebrities, and put them into the mobile phone. Wen Fan had no doubt that those boys who are fond of 2D goddesses and girls who are chasing over stardom would go crazy from excitement.
However, besides the speech design is a little challenging for this sort of game, there is no need for a grand story-line design and there’s also no need for lots of background design. The game was actually a good additional investment to cater for supplementary profit.
But Lou Wei’s estimated capital was clearly written on the computer. Because they still needed to buy the copyright for the image of the 2D persona and real person, the estimated cost was not low. It was a whole ninety million; nearly a hundred million dollars.
Wen Fan felt that this estimated price was still a minimum price range. Afterall, there were some famous celebrities whose image copyright was more than ten million per person.
The few directors discussed it and as expected, they did not agree on it. From another perspective, this game is highly dependent on market perception. If the celebrity or 2D character was not as influential as predicted, it would not be able to attract fans and the target audiences of the game would be greatly reduced.
Wen Fan saw Lou Wei frowned deeply. He closed his eyes and thought for a while. Suddenly, he had an idea. Lou Wei who was beside him muttered in deep thoughts.
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to take in others’ advice. On the contrary, he had to consider more aspects. Since a lot of people do not agree on the game’s proposal, he started to think of a new feasible approach to make the proposal work.
Just at this moment, a message suddenly popped out from Lou Wei’s phone.
[Z Nation Lottery: Congratulations on your successful purchase of today’s lottery ticket. Your purchase number was 11 14 07 25 03 12. Please log on to Z Nation Lottery’s website to check on the winning information. Thank you for your participation and support. – Z National Lottery Headquarter.]
Lou Wei was startled because he never bought lottery tickets before. After he closed the short message page, he saw Wen Fan who waved his hands frantically at him on the screen. The QQ Penguin beside Wen Fan even held a red alert signboard, signalling him to look at Wen Fan. Lou Wei immediately understood what was going on.
He recalled what the system told him when he was updating the Quick Ball system – his Humanoid Quick Ball System can help him do anything on the internet.
A human and a system gazed at each other through the mobile phone screen. Lou Wei felt touched and he linked his phone to his computer and switched on the projector.
Everyone in the conference room saw that the projector that was connected to Lou Wei’s computer suddenly switched on. President Lou who was just discussing the new gaming proposal had actually opened the website for the lottery ticket in front of them.
Zhao Mengke’s eyes twitched. What is Lou Wei trying to do?
Before he managed to question Lou Wei, he saw a line of numbers in the middle of the lottery webpage, showing this month’s winning numbers.
“11 14 07 25 03 12”
Before everyone in the conference room could react, they saw Lou Wei open the message on his phone, projected on the projector through his computer.
It was exactly the same line of numbers. Everyone opened their eyes wide. Lou Wei used his phone to register his phone number and identity card number on the lottery website. The projector on the screen immediately displayed the message from the website.
[Congratulations. You have won the first prize with a cash prize of 99.99 million dollars. Please kindly bring along your identity card to Z Nation Lottery Headquarter within seven working days to claim your prize. Claim will be voided upon expiry.]
The director’s assistant Ling Xiao stared with his eyes wide open.
Zhao Mengke who sat across him was shocked, “What…the f*ck?!”
Z Nation Lottery was different from others’ lottery. Tickets were sold online and are issued randomly. The buyer could not choose their own numbers. In the middle of each month, the website would announce the winning number on the website. As long as the numbers announced matched the numbers on the ticket purchased, that is considered as winning.
But because it was controlled by a machine and tickets were sold online, almost no one had ever won the first prize.
Zhao Mengke had bought lottery tickets before, but he always had an impression that it was a scam. The lottery ticket company would not let the numbers purchased off the internet to match the winning numbers.
But now, Lou Wei who was in a business discussion with the company’s board of directors regarding capital investment issues a second ago was announcing to them that he had won the lottery the next second.
And moreover, it was the first prize of 99.99 million. What dog-sh*t luck is this?
The old man from the phone screen’s ‘contact’ raised a thumb to Wen Fan. The octopus from ‘Zui You’ (T/N: popular lifestyle apps in china) floated from the second page of the desktop and leaned on the penguin’s head clapping at Wen Fan.
Even the QQ Penguin also pulled out a soana from it’s *ss and started playing it silently.
Lou Wei saw everyone on the phone desktop in a joyous atmosphere, he couldn’t help but relax his brows.
He lifted his head and once again glanced at everyone who participated in the meeting.
“Alright, the capital for investment is settled. We shall start to discuss the manpower allocation for the new game.”
Everyone, “…” Can we have a share of the prize?
