Your family’s cherished restaurant is struggling and it’s down to you to ride to the rescue. But your trusty old car, Sandy, won’t survive the road trip without your expertise behind the wheel.
Only a steady hand and a sharp eye will ensure she makes it to your destination. So slip into the driving seat and buckle up for the adventure of a lifetime, set against the beautiful backdrop of 1990s Guangdong.
A treasured part of your family for longer than you can remember, Sandy has carried your loved ones through many a crisis. But your beloved car has seen better days and she’s going to need a helping hand to respond to this latest emergency.
Only by keeping tabs on your fuel consumption, tyre wear and engine condition will you keep Sandy purring as you travel across the wide expanses of China’s most populous region in search of help.
The road ahead is long and it’s going to take more than careful driving to keep Sandy on the move. The only way you’ll ensure she has everything she needs to complete your mission is by taking regular checks under the bonnet. Keep the mechanics away by topping up oil and fuel levels and repairing and replacing worn out parts, from oil filters to fan belts.
As Sunny, a young art graduate and recent inheritor of the struggling family restaurant, you join your Aunt Guu Ma on a mission to revive the once-thriving business. Separated by generations, your relationship with your ageing aunt will be truly tested as your road trip turns into a journey of discovery.
Only by navigating those bumps in the road, and making tough choices as you encounter other relatives, will you shape Sunny’s character, establish her position in the family and discover secrets that could save the restaurant.

Set against the stunning backdrop of 1990’s China, follow Sunny on the road-trip of a lifetime through picturesque lands, gathering secret family recipes that hold the key to your restaurant’s future success.

Interactive conversations give a glimpse into traditional Chinese family dynamics and affect how the game plays out, ultimately impacting the success of your restaurant.

The story has been written by the acclaimed author Yen Ooi who brings her unique style and insight to deliver authenticity and a truly immersive experience:
“Though diversity and inclusivity are terms that are at the tip of everyone’s tongues today, it is still rare to see true engagement with it. I know that the game will only be a glimpse into Chinese culture, but I hope that it is enough to open up a new world of experiences that are more engaging on a human level and less about the entertainment tropes that encourage stereotypes.”
