As for what inspired this concept, I realized that there wasn’t a single game that told the modern Asian American experience, one that honed in on the everyday lives of Asian people, specifically that of a first-generation Chinese girl. I didn’t want my game to be in-your-face Asian, but one where the character just happened to be Chinese, in which her actions and speech are imbued with her cultural identity. Combined with the core gameplay mechanic, in which the player influences the narrative not only through dialogue branches, but by imagining new constellations, The Space in Between is a story that will leave you calling your close ones to tell them you love them.
