A Summer’s End is a narrative game set in the heydays of 1980s Hong Kong. The story centres on a young office worker named Michelle Cheung and how her meeting with the free-spirited and unconventional video store owner, Sam Wong, profoundly impacted her routine life. The game is a work of fiction, but it discusses the atmosphere of 1980s Hong Kong following the signing of the Sino-British Joint Declaration, local Hong Kong pop culture, as well as the shifts in cultural attitudes towards the societal role of women and LGBTQ issues. Individuality, self-determination and freedom of sexual expression is called to question as the player steps into Michelle’s shoes and experiences a burgeoning romance amidst the vibrant backdrop of 1980s Hong Kong. A Summer’s End is a new media homage to Asian cinema and Hong Kong’s golden age of entertainment.
