Uggh, the tilte rather reads like a treatise, doesn't it??

But anyway, coming to the point, TtM is very famous compared to other Indie games in Korea.

It became famous after one of the Afreeca BJ uploaded a viedeo playing TtM.
(Afrreca TV is the biggest Internet broadcast platform in Korea.
Anyone (called BJ) can upload their video or broadcast live, and most of BJs choose the latter and then the watchers write the comments in real time.)

The right white part of the image is their comments.

After the broadcast of afreeca TV, TtM became very very famous especially among teenagers.
(Afreeca influences greatly on gamers, expecially adolescents of Korea.)

If there is any interest in game, TtM is the name mentioned so easily.
With its easy playing and profound story, it has been comsidered as a good game even for the beginner.
So there are many cases he play TtM even if he is not an enthusiastic gamer, and sometimes it becomes a kinda kickstarter that makes him an Indie gamer.

Also, TtM is famous for that it broke the stereotype of Korean gamers that RMS are only used for horror games such as Ib or Ao oni.
Before, it was predominat view that most of RPG games are horror games but after TtM, games with story begin to make a mark.

So far, TtM has been loved by many Korean gamers and we are simcerely waiting for the Finding Paradise.

Wow it was a long text. XD

Oh wow, very interesting to hear that TtM has such an impact in Korea.

So this broadcast platform is kinda like youtube and twitch combined?
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...
Every drop leaves ripples.
