Mandarin Journey: taoism-inspired interactive graphic novel (by m.gaia)

Hello fellow players of TA!

I'm here to announce a new game from our studio: Mandarin Journey, an interactive novel and a new take on how games can teach people. It teaches the player common Mandarin Chinese expressions and elements of Chinese Culture along with the branching dialogs and the game story!

Our team has focused first and foremost on game design and on a good feel through professional high quality illustrations.
Combining this with Constructivist Education Theory and mentorship from Educational experts at MIT and Mandarin native-speakers, we believe we have achieved our goal. Creating a game that not only teaches, but that is actually fun. The game launches December 5th and will be a freebie!






Feel free to ask any questions!

This looks really interesting!
Very high quality presentation.
What genre of game is it? The first screen has me hoping it's a point & click adventure.

You are a super observer! It is an episodic graphic novel heavly influenced by point-n-click (:

Too bad the script doesn't have living tentacles or motorcycle gangs ):
