Meet in Rain is a serious game on Chinese poetry. While invoking various events, players must complete tasks, which help them better appreciate the poems by exploring imaginary sceneries that depict Chinese poems. Its visual design also mimics Chinese paintings in the era the poems were created. As only a few serious games exist for Chinese poetry, and they mostly focus on knowledge acquisition, our work provides a rare design exemplar of a serious game that is designed with the intention of fostering aesthetic appreciation for a cultural subject.
