Tale of Immortal, despite only being in Chinese Mandarin currently, is available everywhere.

It is also only just in an Early Access period, with six chapters available to play.

According to the Tale of Immortal Steam Page, the full game is due to release in about a year.

Industry Analyst Daniel Ahmad has raised an interesting point which only makes Tale of Immortal more impressive.

Although China now accounts for almost a quarter of Steam's user-base, Tale of Immortal goes against the general buying habits of players from the region.
