About This Game
Serendipity InBetween provides a greek tragedy story that lasts for 30 years of two childhood friends in an iconic old community in Shanghai, China. Players experience the game not only as a gamer, but also through a pioneering use of haptic feedback within the controllers that convey the emotion of a player to another.​​​​​​​
This is not just another bitter-sweet story in the game but also an unforgettable experience between the players who hold the controllers.
