As a kid, my mother, a docent at the National Palace Museum, would often take me to visit the exhibits. My favorite one was the Curio Boxes owned by emperors. They’re elegantly made wooden boxes used to curate and store important and precious treasure. I wanted to create a puzzle game that would reflect sense of exploration and delight that comes with solving and discovering the compartments of a puzzle box. Thus, Kaisuo was created. In Winter 2017, with the help of a couple of friends, I successfully pitched Kaisuo (formerly known as Lantern) to the AGP (Advanced Games Project) program at USC. This gave Kaisuo the possibility to go from a brain child I’ve been keeping for almost two years to a fully-fledged game.
