Introverted individuals face many subtle and significant social challenges in their daily lives, and there are very few products designed specifically for them. The paper analyzes the personality traits of introverts and conducts research and organization of real story scenarios in their lives, forming the story scene of the game. A narrative game that can interact with introverts is designed. The game uses dramatic storytelling, symbolic visual language, and an interesting card game system to gradually reveal embedded narratives. By allowing players to explore and acknowledge some social dilemmas encountered by introverts in their social lives, it provides players with a safe and engaging virtual environment to experience and interact with their social activities.
