2019's gearing up to be an exciting new year as we witness the launch of PGC's visual novel adaptation, Pampered Genius Consort! (Chinese: 天才小宠妃, or Tian Cai Xiao Chong Fei.) Players take on the role of Han Yunxi, the Duke of Qin's official (and most favored) consort as they navigate the hidden traps of Long Feiye's estate and Tianning Country! Like PGC's drama adaptation, Pampered Genius Consort will have a derivative plot, but one heavily inspired by Han Yunxi's transmigration roots with tie-ins to the modern timeline. Canonically, the story is set after Chapter 221 in PGC, when an unexpected series of events whisks our heroine into an alternate universe...
