Forget Where’s Waldo. Have you played Where’s Jaycee Chan?
The South China Morning Post reports that game developers have capitalized on the recent arrest in Beijing, on alleged drug-related offenses, of Jaycee Chan — son of actor Jackie Chan — by creating an online game. All the People Search for Jaycee Chan, as the game is called, has quickly gone viral, the Post says.
It’s simple enough, consisting of a mass of tiles — most of them belonging to the face of fellow-actor and friend Ko Chen-tung, who was detained alongside Chan, also on alleged drug violations. Amid identical headshots of Ko, players must find the lone tile of the younger Chan’s face. The goal is to get through as many levels as possible within a minute.
The game premiered on Tuesday in mainland China and received 60 million visits by Wednesday, according to China Youth Daily.
Chinese microbloggers joked about “turning blind” after playing the game for so long, reports the Post.
Jaycee Chan and Ko, who is also known as Kai Ko, were detained on Aug. 14. Chan is in criminal detention for “providing shelter for others to abuse drugs” and Ko is in “administrative detention” for 14 days.
