'Round The Valley

Student Entrant 2024

Esbor Studios


Long after the drought of esborium, a mineral with many use cases, the Esbor valley has lost a bit of its prime. Amina, the last train driver around, has been feeling torn between the comfort of her routine and her desire to explore the world beyond the mountains...

'Round The Valley is a 15 minutes long, single player narrative experience that blends train driving gameplay and visual novel storytelling. Ride through this France-inspired countryside and eavesdrop to your passengers discussions. Because at the end of the day, their stories will help you guide Amina into making a decision.
