In DÅTS you merge figures of the same type and color to clear the screen. The goal is to merge as many as possible, achieving combos and keep going. The game ends if 3 of the same type and color is shown at the screen.
We challenged us selves to make an addictive, simple “endless” game.

Dark Corners

A beta-demo of our Survival Horror Puzzle Game.
Explore the Post Apocalyptic world, filled with light powered dangerous robots.
Your only tool is a flashlight. You need it to explore, but it will also activate the robots.
In Dark Corners you play as Sabbie, a young adult who lived alone in the darkness for a lone time. Sabbie have what she needs of food and water, but she is in desperate lack of something more. Though she is trying to keep the loneliness away with books it is not enough and she ventures out of the safety of her home to find meaning.

The game is centered around exploring and solving situations with your flash light while the story plays with what you will do and risk to not just survive but to live.

Rejected

For my Bachelor at KADK I did an experiment. It was inspired by minimalistic feelings-based games such as Loneliness, LIM, Loved and Pretentious Game, but I wanted to expand the experience and give the player the power to interpret without judgement. Kind of like a Rorschach test but as a game. You would learn something about how you react to situations and can reflect upon your own intuitive choices while playing.

My focus was on communicating the feelings connected to relations between people; feelings such as loneliness and friendship, betrayal and safety. I did this primarily through game mechanics, level design and feedback design. Graphics and audio was not the focus and should be watched as placeholders conveying the mood.

I worked on the project alone.
