Student Entrant 2018

University of Southern California
Bethany Martin and Cardamom team


Cardamom is an interactive musical where the player, as a cat, becomes involved with the three tenants of a nearby apartment complex. Each tenant is dealing with their own struggles in regards to work/life balance, and through the player's interactions can come to realize the error of their ways or descend deeper into their unhealthy lifestyles. The game is similar to a point-and-click adventure game, but being a musical, it is also interspersed with songs from the tenants that lament their hopes and fears at different points during the game.
