About the Story

LIONKILLER is a choose-your-own-adventure game made in Twine. Play as Hua Mulan, a young lesbian who is conscripted into the First Opium War against the British Empire. Run a flower shop, kiss a girl, shoot a matchlock rifle, and uncover a military conspiracy! Your actions will lead you to one out of four different endings. Will you get the girl, or will you die an inglorious death?

LIONKILLER was practically unnoticed at its original launch, but public interest in the game spiked on July 8th, 2019. Sisi tweeted about how folks who were unhappy about the Disney Mulan could choose to support a nonbinary Chinese developer instead. This tweet resulted in over a thousand downloads, and LIONKILLER launched to the front of the itch.io page, where it remains as of July 18, 2019. LIONKILLER also ranks favorably in tags such as Twine, LGBT, and Interactive Fiction.

The full version of the game was released on July 12th, 2019.
