Gold Mountain Quest

The Gold Mountain Quest game (formerly The Gold Mountain Guest game) is the joint effort of students from the Centre for Digital Media at Great Northern Way Campus (Fall 2010- Spring2011) and Catstatic Interactive, a local company formed by graduates of Great Northern Way Campus. Gold Mountain Quest aims to engage young players, typically from grades 5 to 7, by bringing them into direct contact with previously untold Chinese Canadian stories. Based on meticulous research, characters and items in the game are drawn from historical people and artifacts. The video game enables players to experience life as a Chinese Canadian youth in 1910, and explore historically accurate culture in the fictional town of Gold Mountain.
