Genshin Impact Player Shares Awesome Daily Connection Concept
Genshin Impact fan creates an amazing mockup of how the developers could integrate the title’s website-based login bonus system into the game.
It is common for free games to offer daily login rewards. Developers who hand out free items, currency, and crafting supplies are a great way to keep players coming back every day. It is also an opportunity to gently push them towards the microtransaction store. Not surprisingly, it has become the industry standard for Android and iPhone games. And while Genshin Impact is not just a mobile game, it is not above offering any mobile game style incentives.
Strangely, Genshin Impact departs from standard practice by putting their login bonuses on the website rather than on the game itself. While this is not an insurmountable problem, it is still inconvenient for many players. One Genshin Impact The fan was bored enough to create an incredibly detailed mockup of what a daily login screen might look like in the game.
Reddit user CWHardKnight created concept art and shared it on the Genshin Impact subreddit. The page is a fairly straightforward setup, adding a “Visit from afar” tab at the top of the events overview menu. Selecting the tab reveals the login rewards sorted into groups of five. One group is visible at a time, with arrows to allow the player to scroll through the different sets. There is also an icon at the bottom left that would display the entire list on one screen. And while it’s not technically part of the interface, the mockup also features some nice background images of the bard character Venti strumming her lyre in a forest valley.
The mockup received a positive reception from fellow fans on the Genshin Impact subreddit, although there has been some nit-picking about the amount and type of rewards offered. It also appears that most fans aren’t optimistic that an in-game rewards schedule could ever be implemented. One of the reasons given is that developer miHoYo doesn’t seem to view website rewards as a daily login bonus. Another commented that the daily check-in bonus is more akin to a login bonus for Genshin Impact official forum than the actual game, which was an odd but deliberate choice on the part of the developer.
The Daily Rewards mockup isn’t CWHardKnight’s only contribution to the Genshin Impact subreddit. He also created a mockup of a cutscene archive so the player can review the story without searching for YouTube videos. Other examples include concepts for playable versions of characters like the popular event antagonist Scaramouche and the slightly fishy alchemist Baizhu. He also uploaded several other pieces of Genshin Impact fan art on the site.
Genshin Impact is now available for PC, PS4, PS5 and mobile devices. A Switch version is under development.
