As It Is
Student Entrant 2019
As It Is is a watercolor, storybook-like 2D side-scrolling narrative adventure game about helping small animals with their problems in a society where hunting and killing no longer exist. Follow Hedgehog as they try and make friends! Find words to use in conversation! Toot your trumpet!
As It Is features a conversation system that simulates social anxiety by providing platforming challenge, narrative consequence, and visual feedback when selecting dialogue to say within conversation.
The game explores the concept of roles and how we can find our own. With As It Is, we want to celebrate the various cultures and identities we see in our world, to love those with differing perspectives, and especially to grow and accept ourselves.
