Concept and Preproduction
The Life Engine
A concept for a 2D sidescrolling adventure puzzle game. Heavily inspired by games like "Myst" and its sequel, "Riven," the goal here is to
entice the player to explore, while at the same time presenting them with small pieces to the puzzle at hand. Click the image below for a larger view.
To the right is a simple animation created to test the parallaxing of the different spacial layers in the image. It demonstrates how the background might actually appear in-game as a player character is moving through the environment.
