[Dev Blog] Upcoming Features: Time Shards and the Temporal Tablet

Greetings, adventurers!

We’re excited to share a sneak peek at two new features we’re working on for Hua Mulan: A Chinese Learning Adventure—Time Shards and the Temporal Tablet. These additions are designed to elevate your learning experience and provide personalized, engaging ways to master Chinese vocabulary. We're also thrilled to announce that Chapter 2 is in its final stages and will be available soon!

Time Shards: Your Personalized Learning Tool

Learning a new language is a journey, and everyone has words and phrases that need a bit more practice. To address this, we're introducing Time Shards—a fun and interactive way to reinforce your vocabulary skills.

How It Works

When you get a word wrong during conversations with NPCs, a new Time Shard is created. These shards are fractures in time you need to repair. To interact with these shards, you’ll use the EchoSpect Goggles, a special device that lets you see and engage with the Time Shards scattered throughout the game world.

The EchoSpect Goggles:

The EchoSpect Goggles are set to transform your learning experience. By wearing these goggles, you can spot the Time Shards scattered throughout the environment. Each shard contains a word or phrase that needs attention. Interacting with these shards will help you reinforce your understanding and ensure you master the vocabulary and get home.

The Temporal Tablet: Track Your Progress

Alongside the Time Shards, we’re introducing the Temporal Tablet. This handy tool will keep track of your Time Shards and overall progress with both vocabulary and quests.


  • Progress Tracking: Monitor your mastery of vocabulary words and see which ones you need to practice more.
  • Quest Log: Keep an eye on your quest progress and see how far you’ve come in your adventure with Mulan.
  • Interactive Learning: The Temporal Tablet will provide tips and feedback based on your interactions with the Time Shards, helping you focus on areas that need improvement.

Wrapping Up Chapter 2

We’re also excited to let you know that Chapter 2 is nearly complete and will be available soon. In this chapter, you’ll finally meet Mulan and help her prepare for her journey by gathering necessary supplies. The new chapter promises more engaging content, exciting plot twists, and plenty of opportunities to practice your Chinese.

Stay tuned for these updates and more. We can’t wait for you to experience the new features and continue your adventure in Hua Mulan: A Chinese Learning Adventure!

Happy learning and adventuring!
