Project Ideation: Plots

Two possible brief plots:

1. Topic: Mystery, Stories, Puzzle

Inspiration: Gone home

Purpose: A collection of stories/memories that aims to be immersive that hopefully triggers player’s own emotions/memories. 

You walk around rooms that unlock to different environments and in each you can pick up objects, photos, letters, notes or diaries or talk to people that feeds you about some of their memories/stories. At the same time you can also reflect back or be reminded of your own personal ones. Some memories that you pick up are touching, some sad, some happy, some funny, some infuriating, some are even mysterious.  Audio in the background would make the game more immersive.  

note:

-could be based on a real life story or fiction or a mix. 

-could take on a fantasy/dreamy theme as well?

-Could be about discovering self(character) or about other characters. 

 

2.Topic: Mental health, Daily life

Inspiration: Life is strange

Purpose: To help one in understanding more about a person who deals with this mental issue by putting the players in their shoes  that could hopefully raise awareness regarding this issue as well. 

You have a mental disability and because of that you’re trying to escape from it while at the same time trying to live a normal life. You find yourself in your room and can look around to find out more about what type of life you’re leading. Essentially, you live a typical life where you go to school, you have friends, you do some part-time work. However, your disability sometimes gets in the way and overwhelms you, preventing you from being “normal”.  Your goal is to find out what is causing your disability and overcome it. While living your daily life routine, you meet the people in your life as well as new people. The people that you keep close or distant, your actions and how you decide to deal with issues in life may result in them either aiding you or harming you. You might also face dilemmas. You eventually find out the truth and how to deal with your mental disability.

note:

-could be based on a real life story or fiction or a mix. 

-possible adventure theme?
