Developer Notes
Dev Time:Spring 2013 (4 Weeks)
Fav Feature:Lighting System
Made in four weeks as a group project. We were prompted to create an educational game, and from that we made a puzzle platformer in which a blind character and deaf character cooperate to overcome a series of single-screen challenges.
It's a short but well-polished game, and the atmosphere is engrossing, courtesy of the detailed environments, realistic soundscape, and usage of lighting. This is also the first group project for which I made a level editor.
In hindsight, this is more "educational-themed" rather than educational.
