Oracle Bone Inscription Characters (OBICs) are the source of Chinese characters. However, understanding OBICs requires multi-disciplinary knowledge, which makes it extremely difficult for the general public to be interested in it. In order to mitigate the problem, we attempts to promote the Oracle Bone Inscription (OBI) culture through serious games. The game in this work uses Pinyin and comparison tables of OBIC and mordern Chinese characters (MCCs) as auxiliary information, aiming at helping players subtly establish the corresponding relationship between MCCs and OBICs. The game involves 220 recognized OBICs, uses different game modes, and encourages the competence between players. It has low entry requirements, making it suitable for people above elementary school students. Compared to the existing Oracle-themed games, it is more interesting and suitable for the inheritance and promotion of OBI culture.
