Narrative Sidescroller A Taste of the Past Now Available for Free

An emotional side scroller about reconnecting with your Chinese culture while navigating a train to the afterlife, Sondering Studio’s narrative adventure A Taste of the Past is now available for free on Steam.

In this title, players will take control of shy Chinese-American high school student Mei as they relive moments with both cooking and family. After boarding a train that her ancestors boarded, she sets out to uncover her mother’s traditional noodles while setting out to learn more healing, grief, and self-love.

Gameplay tasks players with gathering ingredients from Mei’s ancestors as they chop vegetables, fry noodles, and wrap soup dumplings. Wrapping everything together is original voice acting, writing, art, and music.
