Hi everyone!

I want to share with you a Choose-your-own-adventure titled 'Golden Threads' I developed and illustrated in collaboration with Chinese New Zealand writer Renee Liang.  

This game was created in partnership with Auckland Museum (New Zealand) as part of the 'Being Chinese in Aotearoa: A photographic journey' Exhibition.  We were honoured to be a finalist for Best Sound Design and winner of Best in Representation at PlayByPlay 2017 New Zealand Games Festival.

>> Try the game here for Mac or PC: https://allanxia.itch.io/golden-threads  <<

Inspired by real historical figures and events, Golden Threads γ€Šι»„金线紒 》 explores and celebrates 175 years of Chinese life in New Zealand.

Presented as a 'lost-and-found' diary - make key meaningful life decisions in this 'Choose-Your-Own-Adventure' and immerse yourself in the lives of 19th Century Chinese migrants to New Zealand.

For more information about the exhibit please visit Auckland Museum.

The game is totally free, and won't take too long to finish (unless you want to see all the endings!

PLEASE NOTE: Golden Threads has a locked resolution of 1920 x 1080, if the game fails to display correctly, please make sure you have a monitor with 1080p resolution or above

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you for your time!

Best Regards,

Hi Kathryn,

Thank you for doing a let's play of ! It's a real honour! Apologies for the late reply, I missed the notification from itch.io for some reason.

It was a bit surreal in itself to watch someone commentate something I made years ago back in uni :)  The game is basically one big tribute to Mulholland Drive.  I wanted to experiment with using a game's first-person camera to cut between different perspectives.  Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time/ resources to have voice acting.   So in the end, I could only hint at the changing perspectives through different fonts representing internal thoughts of the three characters.  

Hopefully that makes the narrative a bit easier to understand :)

Thanks again for playing!

Cheers,
Allan
