About Road to Guangdong
Road to Guangdong will launch on 28th August, available digitally on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PS4. A special boxed version, including exclusive recipe cards and a booklet will also be available on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC.
Road to Guangdong is a whimsical exploration into Chinese culture and follows the story of a young graduate, Sunny, who has inherited the treasured family 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. Our heroine is accompanied by her aunt, Guu Ma, as they traverse Guangdong in their beloved but aging family car. Interactive conversations give a glimpse into traditional Chinese family dynamics and affect how the game plays out, ultimately impacting the success of your restaurant. This unique and visually stimulating story arrives on consoles on 28 August 2020.
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.”
